Need instructions to change 2000 VW Beetle headlamp

Can anyone direct me to detailed instructions on how to change a passenger side headlamp on a 2000 vw beetle? I've bought the bulb, and I found instructions for a 98 but it didn't match what I see in my car. The part was only $10, so I hate to spend $50 at the dealer to change something that should be relatively simple.

I can see the area under the hood that I need to open to access the bulb, but I don't know how to open it.

If anyone could help, I'd be very grateful.

Thanks!

Try logging into 'Auto zones's' web site . They have a do-it-yourself help section for many cars. Shows illustrations for such things as headlight change.

thanks for the tip, daswede, but it looks like I'm out of luck on this one. I called a shop in town I trust and they told me they can't even do it because opening that compartment to get to the lamp requires a special tool from VW that VW charges an arm and a leg for. So, I guess I've got an appointment at the dealer next Monday.

Sorry to hear that. I checked the Autozone site and they don't have anything
on your vehicle.
