Hi, I'm Don from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video we're going to show you how to service as well as replace the entire puddle light assembly on this 2004 Volkswagen Jetta. We show you on the driver side but the passenger side is the same procedure. The only tool you'll need is a flat blade screw driver.

Start off by just prying out the puddle light and pulling it forward then push the tabs on either side of this harness and it helps to use a flat blade screw driver for the one closest to the light and just pull the harness free. Then pry up on this tab and pull the cover off and now you can access the bulb and carefully pry the bulb out of those prongs and it pulls out. Push your new bulb into place and then replace that cover. Reconnect your harness and push the light back into place and you're all set.

We hope this helps you out. Brought to you by www.1AAuto.com, your source for quality replacement parts and the best service on the Internet. Please feel free to call us toll-free, 888-844-3393. We're the company that's here for you on the Internet and in person.
