The running lights are inside the light unit, the unit is held in with two screws and simply slides into position. To access the light unit, open the back hatch, and pull the interior away from the top edge of the back wall of the trunk just enough to gain access to the screws along the top edge of the unit. Once removed slide the whole light unit sideways, away from the center line of the car. From there you will see the lights held in the plastic unit with rubber 1/2 turn standard clips.

Refer to your owners manual as you did not specify which lights.

If this question isn't allready answered, I have a 2001 VW Beetle, there might be a dial type switch on the left of the dash for the lights, turn lights on and pull switch out to turn on fog lights.

Some of the warning lights available on the VW Beetle 2001 include a low fuel warning and a seat belt warning. Some other common ones include over-heating engines and the need for an oil top-up.

Interesting question - my 2001 SEL does not have daytime running lights, and I'm not aware that Ford offered them.

Check the brake light switch. This can cause the brake lights to go out. There have been a couple of recalls on the 2001 for this exact problem. Contact your local VW dealer and have the switch replaced.

Hello, all you have to do is turn the back of the light post and pill the lights out for both the fog lamps and the break lights. For the break lights, its less work to change.

If you want to turn off the running lights off try to engage the emergency brakes. I have a 2000 Montana and that works.

It is not adjustable. Only the ECM can change it.
