  • Pull low beam headlamp at harness connector -3- out of reflector.

I'm sorry , but the headlight set-up on our Passat is different. It has a square hard plastic panel on the rear of the assembly (under the hood) about 1 inch just in front of the washer fluid tank. A clip holds the cover on. The headlight is an HID DS1 and looks as though it may be low and hi beam together. I changed the driver's side a while back. It was not easy. The bulb has a metal recangular box attached where a cable plugs in.

Or do I need to remove the entire assembly to replace the bulb?

If you have the H.I.D system the the whole complete headlight will need to be removed which requires you to remove the complete front bumper assembly.You cannot access the lower headlight assembly bolts without the bumper removed. I hope this helps.

Okay. I was able to change the drivers side bulb without removal of the assembly. I will try to do the same with the passenger side. Wish me luck.

Good luck hopefully you have enough room to remove the h.i.d module
