my rear red marker light is out on my beetle, ave no idea how to get to the bulb
Thread search rear fog , find an install thread (many around here, one in the How-to Forum), and basically do the light assembly portion in reverse to access the bulb.my rear red marker light is out on my beetle, ave no idea how to get to the bulb
thats ridiculous if i have to remove the linerSorry, I misunderstood. What your asking was just in a thread last week. I'll find it and post the link in a minute.
I posted both the DIY/How-to from that Org Forum, and what is shown in the Bentley. The Bentley does not offer an updated version of the diagrams for the newer body style, but does include the tightening torque and sequence for the inner wheel liner which is indicated as needing to be removed. I have the current most currrently available Bentley DVD-ROM, with all current updates, and the paper Bentley '98-'08, no other information is available.
Probably not what you wanted to hear (removing the wheel liner to change a bulb). Maybe someone else around here knows a short cut for removing the late model corners.
Watched all that, then watched this one afterIt is held in by a clip. On the left marker you push with a screwdriver to the left and the right side should pop out. On the right side/passenger side marker you push from left to right and the left side should pop out. Here is a Y tube video which should explain it better. The only thing the poster of the video forgot to mention is the direction of the spring depends of the location of the marker. Hence the left marker you push left to get the right side to pop out and the right marker your push right to have the left side pop out.

WOW, Das ist Gut!. Klima-Anlage im Handschuhfach. Total Genial. Next time I will put my Klondike bars in there. I know I don't have that feature but soon it will be cold enough here in Indianapolis where it won't be required and I can enjoy my Klondike bars anytime of day, whereever I drive.
Wow. Wish I would have known that before I actually pulled the lens off the light housing. Didn't have the means to fix at the time so I duct taped the lens on to the body. When my daughter brought the car home for Thanksgiving break, I took it all apart, cleaned it up and glued it back together. But alas, I clamped it too hard and cracked the lens. Oh well - she wants a Mini so I think the NBC is going away next summer.Old thread, but could save you a trip to the dealer for a new marker light. Most say to pry on the red lens opposite the metal spring. I tried this and had no luck. Felt like I was going to break something. If you lay on your back and look up behind the fender liner, you will see the light and spring. Just reach your hand up there and compress the spring tab. The light will pop right out! No screwdriver, no tape to protect the paint, no trip to the dealer.
