My driver's side headlight in my '06 New Beetle Convertible will flicker and then lose connection. I know its losing connection because when I push the headlight back in well, it comes back on temporarily. Do I need to replace the headlight assembly or is it the wiring and exactly what is that little connector called. Hate to sound stupid, but I am trying to figure this out. I can not afford a mechanic right now and I have already had a warning.....:(

There is a locking mechanism that holds the headlight in place. Make sure that it has been returned to the locked position. It is shown in steps 1, 2 and 3 of the following DIY:

Note that the total travel on the lock is 90°, so be careful not to apply too much pressure in turning the nut. The DIY shows the passenger side so look at the little diagram near the nut to make sure you are turning in the "lock" direction.
