I had a 1997 and in order to change the rear bulbs you needed to go in the trunk and behind where the tail lights are there should be a plastic cover. If you remove this you will see the bulbs. You can then replace them with a similar bulb. Additional Info: Replacing the bulbs is actually a piece of cake. You don't even need a tool. Once you remove (unsnap) the black plastic cover, you'll see three screws. These screws hold the tail light assembly to the Cabrio body. No need to take the nuts off however (just thought you'd want to know in case you ever want to remove the tail light. Just below, and inward of the top two screws are two tabs...squeeze them together with your fingers and gently pull... the bulb mounting plate will unsnap from the tail light assembly. All of the bulbs are mounted to the plate and are simply twisted and pulled out for replacement. The Cabrio takes a 7506 bulb for the stop, blinker, and back-up lights. Snap everything back together and your finished. Happy motoring...

how do you change front headlight bulb on 2000 volkswagon cabrio

remove the reflector next to it first and then the light comes out easily. both are held in place with spring clips. the bulb comes out the back. having a vw requires a shop manual. it will pay for itself when you dont have to pay someone to change that bulb for you

I just had to change out the front blinker bulb on my 97 sunfire gt, and as far as I know, there were no huge revisions between the 97 and 98 model year, so here's what you'll need to do. First of all, take out the headlight above the blinker. Your manual should tell you how to do this. Then, simply reach through the hole you've just created to losen the nuts holding the light bulb casing in place, pull it out, and change the bulb. Simple!

Simply look behind the light (from inside the trunk or under the hood), and you access the bulb from their. turn the backing of the bulb to release it and simply change the bulb. A simple fix.

have u checked to see if u have a bulb blown. this will change the resistance on the blinker and make it blink faster

No it means you have your left blinker on. The right bulbs have nothing to do with the left blinker. An incandescent bulb either works or it doesn't. There is no dying out.

Which bulb are you speaking of? The in-dash indicater or your outside turn signal?

Get under the car reach behind the bumper reach towards the blinker then find the wire that goes to it. Then twist the end left and pull out the light bulb in and and replace. For the headlight blinker you have to unscrew the headlight with either a 10 or 13mm socket...pull it out...then twist the end that goes into the blinker left...replace bulb....put things back together....done.

Go to Autozone. When you purchase the bulbs they will put them in for free.

often the blinker is made to blink faster when there is a bulb burned out

remove tail light, remove burnt bulb, replace burnt bulb, test if it works, then put tail light back on....

Check the front blinker bulb to see if it is indeed flashing when it is turned on...In my 2004 Malibu, fast flashing indicates that a front blinker bulb has burned out.

That means that the bulb in the blinker needs to be replaced.

- On the 4th Gen F bodies, Crawl under the car, where the turn signal is out- unscrew the 2 screws holding the bulb in and pull down the flap. Then remove the bulb and install in reverse order. Fogs can be changed from here as well. - You can also access the blinker bulbs through the headlights. Just flip headlights open but do not turn on. Once headlight is open you can unscrew and remove casing around the headlamp. You will be able to see both the blinker bulb and the fog bulb. This leaves you plenty of room to change bulbs.
