On my 02 beetle I have tail light and blinkers but my brake lights don t work. When I removed the bulbs, in one of the sockets there is a bunch of white gunk. I'm a new beetle owner. Don't really know much about this beetle. What could the white gunk be and do I need to replace the socket?

The white gunk is probably dielectric grease; which is used to prevent the corrosion of the light bulb connector, should moisture get into the tail light housing.

If it were me, I would check all the bulbs, the fuse(s) and the brake pedal switch.
