    Thread: 2006 Passat - Replacing Headlight Bulb

    1. 12-17-2008 11:52 AM #1
      My headlight bulbs need replacing. I know this is a relatively simply fix, but would like some instruction. Does anyone have a picture diagram or step by step instructions on how to replace the headlight bulbs? Thanks in advance.

      Email me:
      (email removed, solution seen below)
      and I'll send you the PDF's from the Bentley.

      As a moderator I'm usually able to add attachments to posts w/o hosting but for some reason the lighting forum isn't allowing it right now (and I'm a bit lazy to host it on my website right now).

      Thanks Tan (for the second link)...

      Don't email me - as I'm going to email you the PDF's that are in the second thread mentioned above.

      Thanks for the links. I was able to replace them without any instruction. But I will keep them for future reference.

      Here is a thread I made in the testing forum where I'm able to put attachments into a post....

      That thread will give you the factory repair manual for replacing your halogen bulbs whether you have the Hella or Valeo variety.

      here's the instructions:

      1. Open hood
      2. Locate headlight low beam cover (it's the biggest rubber cover) & pull it off.
      3. Reach in, grab the bulb connector, twist counter clockwise to remove (Hella & Late Valeo). Early Valeo just pulls out. Take note of the position of the tab that sticks out of the bulb.
      4. Separate Bulb from holder:
      4a. Hella: pry off the metal cover holding the bulb to the plastic connector
      4b. Late Valeo: pry bulb off of plastic connector
      5. Install is reverse of removal.
