Best Answer

I just changed one in my wifes wagon yesterday. Open the access panel (start with the passenger side, it's easier to see what you're doing, even if the pass side is OK, it'll give you a better view than the drivers side)

You'll see 2 plastic clips on the outside edge of the back of the lens. Release those and swing the plastic plate back, sliding the 2 tabs on the inboard side out of their slots. Sort of like the battery compartment door on your remote controls for tv's and such. With a little wiggling and carefull manoevering you can swing this plate around exposing the bulbs.

The drivers side is a little tougher because of the mounting box for the CD player, but it can be done!

How do you replace a Jetta brake light?

Tail lights and brake lights are easy to replace on a Jetta. Open your trunk, and look on the inside on the side of the broken tail light. There is a little compartment with two knobs. Turn them and the compartment will open. Squeeze the tabs on the light module and it will come out. Unscrew the dead bulb and screw in your replacement. Replace the light module, making sure it clips into place. Then close the compartment and turn the knobs to latch it. You are done! Source: Have a 2000 Jetta GLS and I replaced my tail light today.
