You have to pop off the mirror cover. I can't remember how I did that, but I think it just pops off. The newer style mirrors seem to pop off super easy if you get something to pry up right in front of the signal area. Obviously use something that won't scratch it. Good luck!

Yeah you'll have to pry it off from the top first. Once you get the top pull back a bit it should just lift off fairly easily. The corner lights are snapped in place a bit so dont just yank em out. Have to slide them forward and up.<p>The lights in the corner of the head lights im pretty sure you have to get from the inside of the head light. Just pop the assembly out and pull the covers. Pretty sure they are right on the side.

well the main cover that is inside the headlight doesn't have access to it. There is a wire that disconnected from the bulb but i have no idea how to pull it out.

Hmmm wierd. The 194 bulbs just press into the housing. I usually just tug on the wires to remove the bulbs lol. Maybe we can check it out at the GTG <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: lighting questions (kpsingh0)

I just power adjusted my mirror as far down and in as I could, took a pair of needle nose and pulled the rubber tab on the back of the 194 bulb. I replaced mine with the stealth 194s from autolumination.com. As for the side marker bulb, pull the tab to remove the headlight. Once the headlight is out, you will see a grayish rubber socket cover (similar to the one in the mirror). Just pull on it and the bulb will come out of the socket. I found it to be one of the easiest bulbs on the car to replace. Feel free to ask for any more clarification if you need it... good luck
