Open the trunk, inside there is a panel that you have to remove in front of the tail lamp. Inside that hole is a star like screw, unscrew it all the way off. Use a flat butter knife to pry the tail light assembly off. Insert the butter knife under the lense near the seam closest to hatchback. Be sure that you only pry from that side, there is a locking tab that slides underneath towards the outside so you will have to lift the one side up first. After the assembly is removed, twist the harness counter clockwise to remove the bulb from the housing, press down on the bulb and turn counter clockwise to remove it..

How do you change a brake light on a 1999 Volkswagen new beetle?

Don't bother. The brake light switch on 1999 beetles (maybe all of them, actually) have been recalled. Unless you get it changed, the brake lights will keep going out. Call your local dealer and they should change it for free, mine did about 8 months ago. Still, this doesn't seem to fix the problem as my brake light is out. It may only be a burned out bulb though.
