How do I change the driver's side headlight in a 2006 VW New Beetle?

open the bonnet. you will see a plastic handle . above this is a sort of button which has to be pressed. the button normally has white paint on it and has a hatched pattern on it and is square. while keeping the button pressed, gently pull up the handle. this will release the headlamp forward out of the bumper. from there you can remove the cover on the back and change the bulb. when refitting , make sure the handle is up and that the lugs on the lamp sit into the runners.

I need to know the step on how to replace headlight bulb on a 2006 vw beetle convertible

There are two spring clips located under the hood around each headlamp housing. Open both clips and extract the headlamp housing from the front of the car by pulling the plastic assembly by grabing the edges by the black rubber seal. The entire headlamp housing will pull out from the front bumper enough to allow you to change the bulbs. Repeat procedure and clip the spring clamps back in place.

How do I change the headlight on a 1998 vw Beetle?

Lift the hood and if equipped remove plastic engine cover. On each headlight you will see plastic retaining latches. releasing these latches will allow the whole headlight assembly to slide out. Its a canister type assembly. You can then access teh bulbs to replace the lights. it reassembles teh same way

Replacing 2006 VW Beetle headlight How do you do

This is based on my 2001 Beetle, so hopefully they didn't make it any more complicated by the 2006 model year.

Open the hood and look at the inside of the headlight housing. Going from the back of the housing toward the front, there's a metal clip, then a plastic lever, then a little rectangular button with dots on it. These are all right next to each other. Pop off the metal clip, press down on the little rectangular button, then pull up on the plastic lever. It's kind of like a childproof pill bottle cap, I guess. Once you've done all those maneuvers, the headlight housing should slide out the front. Then you can unplug the wires and replace the whole unit, or open up the unit and replace just the bulb.

Since you're working on the driver's side, you'll also have the added joy of trying to work around the battery compartment. You may have to take the battery cover off to get enough room.
