Persistence. The slide assembly used for these headlights is ingenious and infuriating at the same time. Make sure that the lugs are matched up to the slots that they go through. Gently but, firmly move the light assembly into the socket assembly until it stops. Turn the lever to pull the light assembly back into place. Wiggle the light assembly while turning the lever to help it go smoothly. If it does not go the first 2 or 10 times, do not get frustrated. It will go and the next time you have to change one out it will take 1/10th of the time.

Replacing a Beetle HeadlightIt depends on which side headlight. For the driver side bulb, you first need to remove the battery. (strange but true). Remove the battery cover, take off the cables, and find a bolt on the bottom front edge of the batery in the center. Their OS a metal retaining band on the headlight cover assembly. Slide that off and you should finnally get to the back of the bulb socket. twist it a quarter turn and pull it our. Replace the bulb and put everythign back together. Depending on how long this takes you, you may have to re-sett the secutrity code on your radio once the power has been recontected. Their are directions for this in the back of your manual. *****Wrong! You do NOT need to remove the battery! Just go to this GREAT sight thanks to Cindy Li and there will be instructions with pictures showing you how it's done. It's a 10-15 min job!***http:/www.cindyli.com/site/comments/vw_beetle_headlight_replacement


Tske out the old ones by removing the screws. Unplug the headlight. Plug in the new headlight. Put it all back together.


On the top of each headlight assembly, you will see two small semi-circular tabs. Pull these tabs upwards - you may have to use a wrench or screwdriver to put some force into it, as they tend to get stuck with road salt and grime. Once they move upwards, about 3/4 inch or so, the headlight assembly will release. You can then pull the headlight assembly forward and out of the truck. It will be attached only by the wires. Rotate the lightbulb assembly counter clockwise, and the bulb will come out. Replace the bulb, put it back into the headlight assembly, and rotate it clockwise to lock it in. Replace the headlight assembly, making sure the three screw/nuts are in the locking tabs correctly. While pushing the headlight assembly inwards, press the two locking tabs back down. This will lock the headlight assembly back into the truck, and realign the headlight, so that it does not have to be aimed again.

Remove the two scres that hold in the headlight. One is found on top and is called the jackscrew. The second is on the outside near the turnsignal. Once they are take out, slide the headlight out and put a cloth down to protect the lens, you can access the bulds that need to be changed. Don't touch the bulbs with your fingers because the oils from your fingers will cause the bulbs to explode. Once they are in, put the headlight back into the opening and put the screws back in.
