Could be a loose screw (behind the wheel) haha; kidding. Sorry.

Could be a loose screw behind the door panel. It's pretty easy to come off; The beetle uses alot of torx screws on the interior; so you'll need some torx bits/drivers, whatever. (it's like a 6 pointed star) There's 3 screws on the bottom of the panel; and 2 hidden behind the 'door pull' the one that usually peels. You'll need to pry the cover off to get to those 2 screws. Then pull the bottom rear edge out and work your way around pulling the clips straight away from the door. When you get to the top edge, that comes out differently; Stick a forearm under there and lift straight up. Be careful w/all the wires, they connectors are pretty easy; you'll just need to hold the panel till you have all the connectors undone. There's only like 8 or so.

Good luck; if it's on the other side of the black panel... I wouldn't really recommend digging too deep. But if it's a 2006 NBC... you should still be in your 12 mo bumper to bumper warranty. (wish I'd seen that first)... just take it to the dealership and make them do it free.
