1999 and up has a lever on the side of the headlamp under the hood. flip it up and pull on outside lens sometimes they dont come out easy so you just jiggle it out and make sure that collar is all the way up. to install it has 3 square guides to line in slots the push in an tap on lens while putting collar down.

you need to remove the tail light lens. There is a large round plastic cap located behind the lens in the truck .Remove the cap and there is a black plastic nut that you can remove by hand, that will release the lens and you will be able to replace the bulbs.

Yes. You have to remove the battery before changing the driver side head light bulb.

The rear turn signal bulb in a 2005 VW Beetle Convertible can be replaced by opening the rear hatch (engine compartment). The bulb's inside lens has to be removed and then the bulb can be exchanged for a new one.

On the dash to the right of the steering wheel. Pull out for lights.

If you're referring to the tail lights, remove the 3 screws to remove the lens. Change bulbs, reinstall lense.

You have to remove the headlight assembly to get to it. Google "how to change a VW New Beetle headlight bulb" and you can find how-tos with pictures, which is helpful here because one of the bolts holding it in is nearly inaccessible.

Open the hood. On the headlight housing you will see a locking cam. Depress and release. The whole assy will be pulled from the front of the car. Once out you will see how to replace the bulb(s)

To replace the flasher on a VW Beetle, locate the flasher under the dash on the driver's side. Remove the old flasher and replace with a new one. This is not a fuse, but a three prong plug in that looks like a small cylinder.
