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?
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.
