Open the hood. Locate the seam between the nosepiece and the front fender (either side). Go up to the second fender mounting bolt and look down under the fender a few inches. (driver's side - take the battery distribution cover off & there is an access hole just above the negative battery terminal) You'll see a small push-button with hatch marks on it just in front of a lever with a finger recess on the underside. (I recommend finding it on the passenger side first. It is more evident on that side & makes it easier to find on the driver's side.) Push in the push-button w/hatch marks to release the lever & pull up on the lever - the lever is pretty stiff. When you lift the lever the headlamp assembley will slide forward slightly. Once you've topped out the lever, push on the headlight from behind with one hand and be prepared to catch the assembly with the free hand from the front. There is a black plastic cover on the back of the housing. Lift the tab to remove the cover. There is a metal spring clip that holds the bulbs in place. Undo this and the bulb will come out of the center (with the wire attached). You should be good to go now.

Thanks to the guy that posted the response to the 2000 Beetle headlight question. The newer ones are similar enough that note was the lead-in to this. Hope it helps you out & saves you some problems.

I am facing the same problem with my 2003 Beetle. Some have suggested drilling a smail (1/16") hole in the slider and using an awl to move the slider lock up. Others on a model year I don't recall, removed the assembly to get into the slider lock assembly. Good luck!

How do you replace the headlights in the 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan?

I need to replace the bulb on the driver side of my 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan. After searching this forum I found a similar question regarding the 2000 Caravan. It talked about under the hood removing three screws and pulling out the headlight assembly. I tried this and it worked on the 2003. 1) open the hood. 2) Carefully remove the three screws holding the headlight assembly in place. In my case the screws were black. Be careful as they are screwed into plastic. 3) Carefully slide the headlight assembly out. At this point you can replace the headlight bulb, turn signal bulb, or the entire headlight assembly. To replace the headlight bulb turn the collar holding the bulb in counter clockwise. Pull the bulb out of the headlight assembly. Replace the bulb. Insert the bulb into the headlight assembly insert the collar and turn clockwise until it locks. 4) Carefully insert the headlight assembly back into place. 5) Replace the three screws removed in step 2 being carefull not to over tighten.
