There's a tab on the plastic ring that you need to pop, and then wiggle the whole light assembly out and disconnect the wires

access for the bulbs is a panel you undo at the back of the light assembly, and the low-beam bulb is the first one you encounter when you reach in. (H1 should be the bulb)

putting it back in requires even more wiggling, as you tighten the plastic ring and lock it in place (pay attention that you get the light back in flush to the body work)

Need to replace driver's side headlight on a 2008 vw beetle


This is not a fun job. The headlight retention system sometimes becomes locked up due to dust and grime on the mechanism. Even if things are clean, it is VERY difficult. Take my word for it, a VW dealer is the best bet for you. The headlamp mounting system on the Beetle is one of the stupidest setups I've came across in 45 years of fixing VW's. And you can bet VW designed it to force you to go to the dealer.

Changing headlights in 2004 VW New Beetle Convertible


  • Step 1 Open the hood of your Beetle and look between the first two fender-mounting bolts. Then, look down a few inches from there. There is a small knob, which is the release knob for the headlight-housing assembly.
  • Step 2 Push the release knob down and then all the way up as far as it will go.
  • Step 3 Push the headlight housing forward from the back of the housing.
  • Step 4 Unplug the headlight connector from the back of the headlight.
  • Step 5 Push down on the plastic tab on the back of the headlight housing and slide the black plastic cover down to reveal the headlight.
  • Step 6 Remove the spring clip from the back of the headlight by pulling it off with your fingers. The headlight bulb will come out of the back of the headlight housing when you do this.
  • Step 7 Install the new headlight bulb and replace the spring clip to secure the headlight to the housing. Installation of the removed components is the reverse of removal.

    How to change headlight on 2008 vw beatle driverside


    the hard part is finding a release clip for the headlight. its usually right on the side of the headlight in the engine compartment in between the barrtey and the headlight. once you release this clip, the whole headlight pops out, the you just replace the bulb and put the headlight right back in and make sure you put the clip back on.
