Question about 2002 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo S
Does the lens pop out to acess these bulbs
Mine's a 2001, but I think 2002 is the same.
I found this site/question when searching for the answer today.
Now that I had to muddle through it on my own I thought it only fair that I spread the knowledge.
My 2001 has two license plate lights, one on either side of the plate mounting area.
There is a slot at the top of each light bezel that at first appeared to me to be where you might insert a screwdriver or hooked tool to pry/pull out the bezel.
This proved NOT to be the case.
If you forge ahead heavyhandedly in this direction you will risk breaking the lens.
If you look very carefully at the top of the slot you will find a tab that is VERY thin and thus hard to spot at first glance.
take a thin flat screwdriver and insert it gently ABOVE the tab.
Press down gently but firmly, and coax, or lightly pry the lens out.
Once you have it out, rotate the gray plastic piece directly behind the reflector portion of the lens about a 1/8 turn in a counter clockwise direction.
At this point you can access and change the push-in type "OS 12V W5W E1 2GL w0T" bulb.
To reassemble just reverse the directions.
When snugging the assembly back into the license plate area, first position the bottom and then tip the top into position until you feel/hear it click.
Celebrate your victory over your machine!
