For that you need to take off the complete frontplate of the console. Two screws on the top (above the left and right of the three control knobs for air circulation) and two screws in the ashtray. Unscrew these four and it should come off.

You'll see the holder of the lamp. The lamp itself is a small all-glass plugin lamp, as used in lighting the dials of the cockpit, can be bought from any gas station. The lamp is covered with a little green (silicone) tube that makes it light green. With your nails you can gently slide it off and put it on the new lamp.

Change bulb and screw back on, and everything should be back in working order.

Good luck!

Open your trunk and find the wires that go to the bulb over the license plate. Twist the base to remove the light.

To change the light bulb for the ashtray in the 1999 Volkswagen Passat, the ashtray has to be taken out. The bulb can be accessed just under the dash near the ash tray.
