There is also a push in socket at the top of the light and a clip at the bottom. When the screws are all undone insert a flat screw driver under the light fitting about 4 inches from the top (remember to use a cloth under the edge of the screwdriver to avoid marking the paintwork) you should be able to push it out now.

There is also a locating lug on the lamp that slides over a slotted groove,When the 2 screws have been removed grab the lamp firmly and pull to the rear this will free the lamp from its location and allow access to the bulb holder.

SOURCE: Tail Light in 2004 Beetle

If you need to replace your tail light bulb, first remove the cover (it's round) from the inside of your trunk. There will be a black knob that needs to be unscrewed totally to release the back light casing. The screw is spring loaded so it is not going to fall. Be sure to hold on to the black knob. If you drop it you can retrieve it, but it's best to not drop it. Next pry the light casing from the fender with a knife or some other sturdy object. It is best to pry the light out from the line that runs from the light to the hatchback door. Don't be afraid, it takes a little force to pull out. After you pull out casing, you'll find two light switches. The one with one filament is for the turn signals and the one with two filaments is for the break light. Turn the light switch counter clockwise and remove. Switch out light bulb with new one (AutoZone has them for about $5.00 - package of 2). Replace every thing back as you uninstalled it. It is recommended that you replace all bulbs, that way it you don't have to do it again later when they go out. It'll save you the time and hassle of doing this again. Hope this will help anyone so print and save in your manual for later use.

SOURCE: how do i remove and replace the driver's side mirror?

If the metal pivot arm is not broken you can just replace the glass and plastic housing. To remove the glass you tilt the glass down towards the floor and use a wide plastic or wood bladed object to prise from behind, the glass should pop off from its clips. Remember to catch it if its not damaged. To remove the housing once the glass is out you need to look underneath the mirror unit, there you will find a small plastic bung, gently prise it out and then use a long small flat bladed screwdriver straight up inside the hole and lever towards the front of the car whilst lifting straight up on the plastic housing, this should then lift off. To replace just slot the new housing on and click into place then fit the glass back, remember to connect the wires first if it is a heated glass.
If the metal pivot arm is broken then you will find the remaining screws behind the plastic trim inside the vehicle.

How to replace the brake light on a 2003 honda pilot ?


There are two philips head screws that are only accessible after opening the rear tailgate lid. Remove the two screws which will allow the removal of the entire tail-light assembly. (Note that it might take some effort as there are two retaining lugs on the outer edge of the fixture which are press fitted but wiggle and pull and they will pop loose, just be careful.) The lights are identified tail and brake. A third turn to the left and the bulb housing can be removed. Simply pull the bulb from the plug and replace with like bulb bought at any auto parts store. NOTE : what ever you do .Do it carefully and slowly. Thanks.this will help.

Brake Pad Replacement,2004 VW Touareg,V6 instructions


Same as any other vehicle.

1. Raise and support vehicle
2. Remove tire/wheel
3. Loosen/remove the two caliper bolts
4. Slide caliper off the rotor.
5. Use a C-Clamp to depress the caliper piston
6. Remove old pads from caliper
7. Install new pads on caliper
8. Install caliper/tighten caliper bolts
9. Install tire/wheel
10.Lower vehicle
11 Move to next wheel/repeat

Some people take a turkey baster and remove some of the brake fluid from the master cylinder prior to depressing the caliper piston because it can over flow. If you choose to do that just add the fluid back when finished so it is at its proper level.

How do I change brake light bulb of Nissan Sentra 2008


Was able to complete this job successfully:
It's a little tricky to do without pictures, but I don't have any available right now.
  1. Access the trunk
  2. Remove the material covering the light. You'll need to remove the black pegs by lifting the centre part. A flathead screw-driver will help. There are 2 to remove -- one directly behind the brake light and another at the top of the trunk.
  3. Pull back the material to expose the brake light wiring and the metal frame of the car.
  4. There are 2 nuts / screws to remove near the entrance of the trunk. Both are about 4 inches apart and hold the tail light's cover in place. Remove both.
  5. Using a bit of force, you will be able to pull off the entire tail light from the frame of the car. This is done on the exterior of the car.
  6. Rotate the problematic light from it's housing (it should come off with ease) and pull it out of the socket. Brake light and indicator are a 3057K bulb.

Need to remove the passenger side headlight assembly on an "06 vw touareg?


There can be slight variations in procedure from one model to another when replacing headlights. For instance, on some models the turn signal light assembly must be removed before the headlight can be replaced. Overall, however, the procedure does not differ much from the following typical instructions.
Make sure the replacement bulb is the same type and part number as the one that is being replaced.

To Replace:
  • Remove the headlight bezel retaining screws. Remove the bezel. If necessary, disconnect the turn signal lamp wires.
  • Remove the retaining ring screws from one or both lights.
  • Remove the retaining rings.
  • Remove the light from the housing. Disconnect the wiring connector from the back of the light.
  • Push the wiring connector onto the prongs at the rear of the new light.
  • Place the new light in the headlight housing. Position it so the embossed number in the light lens is on the top.
  • Place the retaining ring over the light and install the retaining ring screws. Tighten them slightly.
  • Check the aim of the headlight and adjust it, if necessary.
  • Install the headlight bezel. Secure it with the retaining screws.
  • Connect the turn signal lamp wiring (if it was disconnected).
Hope this helps!

Need to remove headlight assembly on a 2004 Volkswagon Touareg. I can't locate the removel clip. (last step)


Once you turn the octagon screw to release the light and push it forward or out of the front of the vehicle, take a light and look to the left side if your working on the driver side or the right side if your working on the passenger side and you will see a metal tab release. Take a long flat head screw driver and press down toward the ground gently. The headlight will be released and the whole assembly comes out as it has a plug/electrical connection on the back of the assembly. I just replaced my headlights, I have a 2004 Touareg with 44,000 miles and have already gone through 2 sets of headlights. The VW dealer will want $300.00 to replace 1 side! They have lost their minds. How long have you had yours and what engine do you have? Just curious if you have had any problems? My Touareg has just needed tires, brakes, headlights. I have done the brakes as well. They want around $900.00 + for front plus about 8 for the rear. If you need anything just hollar and if you have any questions just let me know if I canhelp.
