VW Jetta Lighting

I need to replace the headlamp of my 2000 Jetta (driver's side). Is there any way to do this at home without going to the shop and paying $50.
The drivers side does look pretty complicated.

    if your just replacing the light bulb then there should be a couple screws above the light holding a trim piece on, so take those out and remove the trim and the light twists then you just pull the light out of the wiring harness

    I need to replace the signal flasher on my 2000 Volkswagen Jetta. Can anyone tell me where this is located and the way to get at it?

    Bentley, Bentley, Bentley.

    Every Volkswagen should come from the factory with the Bentley Repair Manual in the glove box.
  • I know you posted this question over a year ago, but for the next person who might stumble upon this ... I found the following article to be a great source when I was changing my 2000 Jetta headlamps:
  • I've got the GLX with the Auto Check System (NOT the Multi-Function Indicator) and I'm trying to change the Temperature from Celcius to Farenheit. Can anyone tell me how to do this?
  • My 2001 Jetta had a burned out tail light bulb. The glass had cracked and I pulled the bulb out to get a replacement. When I put everything back without the bulb, none of the lights worked - just the brake lights. When I finally replaced the bulb, the lights, except for the brakes, still did not function. Any thoughts?
