I tried doing a search for the answer before posting this:<br>I am trying to replace my front turn-signal bulbs w/ a coated silver bulb but CANNOT access the passenger side socket. It's blocked by the winshield washer fluid container, misc wires and what appears to be an ECU type box.<p>How to I access this bulb socket? Do I remove the headlight? If so, how is that safely done? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Thx for your help... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Pull out the windshield wiper refill tube. Pretty simple after that.<p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=57365" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=57365</A>

Re: (basscotte)

I just did this last weekend...<br>Driver side...pull existing wiring harness away from frame by removing the metal clips from the frame<br>This will allow "easier" access...<p>The passenger side...PITA....<br>Remove drain tube from clips, remove clips to aviod being cut up...<br>Remove the back of the main headlamp housing, this gives you slightly more room to manuever<br>Undo the torx screw holding the washer fluid resevoir so you can push it slightly out of the way<br>Unclip any wiring around that area<br>I found it easier to stand next to the passenger side and reach in with my left hand, bio-mechanical advantage<br>Turn clockwise to remove<br>You could probably remove more but this made it possible...
