how do i replace the right side headlight low beam
headlight bulb replacement on 2003 Volkswagen Beetle
Open the hood , look at the headlight assembly from behind. You will see a white square tab. This is the release for the headlight retaining ring. Depress the tab to rotate the ring , it will only move one way , and the assembly will walk the headlight forward or out. To install the assembly , start it in its "tracks" and rotate the ring the other way and the assembly will pull back into place. The tab will click when it is locked.
The headlight slides outward, there is a release lever on the in board side of the head light assembly.
