|A coworker needs to replace her headlight bulb in a 2005.5 Jetta. She called a local shop and they are trying to tell her that it is a $400 job. She does not have HIDs so I find it really hard to believe that it should cost that much.|
Is there anything special to replacing these bulbs??
It costs as little as $15 - $20 (for a pair of H7 bulbs, available at any parts store... heck, even Walmart) and 5 - 10 mins of your time at the most.
The MK5 bulbs are super easy to replace.
Open hood, unscrew the rather large Low or Hi Beam plastic covers on the back of the headlight assemblies, twist out bulb holder, replace bulb, reverse procedure.
$400... better include the 40K service for that price.
