ON EITHER SIDE OF TRUNK CONPARTMENT YOU WILL SEE A CIRCULAR SHAPED ACCESS TRIM,THROUGH THERE A PLASTIC SPEED NUT CAN BE SEEN,UNSCREW AND GENTLE PULL BACK THE LENSE (TOWARDS THE OUTSIDE ,THE TAIL LIGHT ASSEMBLY SHOULD FOLLOW,UNSCREW LIGHT SOCKET AND CHANGE BULB.

To elaborate on this, there is a clip on the inside edge (toward the hatch lid) that will let you pull the light assembly out. Put a small skinny screwdriver under the rubber gasket at the point that the two fender pieces join and push firmly. This will pop the clip and the tail light assembly can be pulled out.

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.

Had the same problem with mine. The dealership told me it was the backup light switch. I had the same problem, as do 99% of VW beetle owners. There was a recall on the Brake Light Switch. Call your dealer and they should change it for free. I did. It worked for a bit, but now i think one of my brake lights is out again.
