I disagree with the other poster, changing the lights is rather simple in my opinion. You access the light bundle from within the trunk. There are two access panels, on the left it will be your "Roadside Safety" space, on the right, a much smaller but similarly locking panel. Open these to reveal the lighting bundles. There are pinch tabs on either side of the light bundle. Pinch and remove. Check for burned bulbs or loose connections.

The exact bulb number is printed on the reverse side of the plastic, write that down and take it to an auto parts store. Remember to always use proper precautions when working with electricity, disconnecting the battery when necessary. I hope I was able to answer this before you pay someone to do it for you. The steps should be roughly the same for any Golf, Jetta, or Passat in the A4 line (99.5-05) and the new Beetles.

:: if both bulbs are ok, and the fuse is not blown, it may be the reverse lamp sensor switch on top of the transmission

AnswerI believe that changing the lights on a Jetta are pretty difficult compared to other cars. Your best bet is to go to a Volkswagen dealer.
