How do you change the headlight on a 2000 Volkswagen beetle?

I am not positive if your car would be the same as a 2003. Under the hood look for the headlight case. you will see there is a clip. Push in on the clip and a lever will pop out. The lever has a curve to it for your thumb. Push down on this lever....while you push down the head light casing will come out towards the front of the car. Disconnect the wires where the headlight are and the rest you should be able to figure out. Not a hard job, pay attention when reinstalling as there are plastic nubs that have to line up, do not force they are plastic.
