Open the hood and look into the fender well, you'll see the black headlight assembly with a long black lever sticking out toward the engine compartment. Right next to the base of the lever is a black button with a diamond pattern on it. The button releases the lever and allows it to move upward. Push the button in enough to allow the lever to slide. Don't force it. I've heard of people snapping off the lever or pushing the button through the housing. The button only moves in a fraction of an inch. If you have dust and grime in the lever's track, it may be a little stiff. Be patient, be gentle. When you move the lever all the way to the top of it's track, the headlight assembly will start to slide out the front of the fender. You can grab it and pull it the rest of the way out. Again, it may be a little stiff, but should slide out with little effort. Look at the back of the assembly, there is a black cover with a release on the top and another small catch under a screw on the side. Push on the catches and the cover will swing off. When you get the cover off, you'll see the headlamp. The low beam is on top. It's being held in place by a wire clip that is hinged at the top. Push the bottom of the cip to clear the catch and swing the clip up. Now, you can remove the bulb and disconnect the wire. Replace the wire on the new bulb and reverse the whole procedure to put it all back together. It took me about 15 minutes.(quicker than changing the bulb in my '73 Super Beetle), and you'll save yourself $50 not taking it to the dealer. Get the right type of bulb also. You don't have to pay twice as much if your Beetle doesn't have the bright white lights. Mine doesn't. I pay about $8 for the standard bulb vs. $20 for the white ones.
