How do you replace the brake light bulb on a 99 passat?

my son's friend broke my taillight with a lacrosse ball which caused me to get a used taillight assembly and learn the answer to your question. 99 passat. if it's the driver's side, open the trunk and remove the cover to the CD changer/storage area by twisting the two thumbscrews. this will expose a white plastic insert. press two plastic tabs toward the center and the entire assembly, that holds 4 bulbs (only 3 populated), lifts out easily. to replace a bulb press down and turn (bayonet base). similar concept for passenger side. just lift away the black covering to expose the white plastic assembly.

How to replace bulb in rear brake light on 2002 passat?

If it is covered by carpet you may have to cut a "door" into it to get access to the light, some are pre cut. The whole bulb assembly is a white plastic framework holding all the bulbs. This has 3 or 4 clips protruding straight out that must be depressed inward towards the center simultaneously and the assembly will slide out. All the bulbs for that light are on that white plastic unit you have removed. Good luck.

How do you remove the headlight assembly on a 2004 Passat to clean out the foggy haze within the assembly or can it be done at all?

Have done similar procedure on 1999 Passat. Please verify that haze is on inside. Mine was actually on the outside of lense cover. I used a Maguires product called PlastiX to polish the haze off of outside of the lense. It takes a lot of work, but end result is clear lense cover. For the inside, you might be able to remove the lense assembly by removing the spring clips from the adjuster bolts that attach the lense assembly to the body. Similar to what you would do if you had to change the light bulb.
