How do you replace a headlight bulb on a 1998 VW Beetle?
Maybe this will help, on a 1999 you open hood, depending on witch
light you are changing.
On the inside fender panel there is a lever you have to pull up,
there should be a lock button you have to push in, in order to pull lever up.
Then just pull on headlight and it should pop out.
Hope this helps.
