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! See also: http://www.cindyli.com/index.php/site/comments/vw_beetle_headlight_replacement/
