Volkswagen New Bettle Headlight

Asked by Sep 16, 2015 at 11:03 AM about the 2008 Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I replaced the passenger headlight assembly and it is still loose. Is there a way to tighten the latch or lever? The headlight goes out with the slightest movement.

1 Answer

You may have defective headlight carriage. More than likely, you did not properly turn the locking nut to the lock position. Before that, make sure the assembly has been pushed back in place (no gaps along the perimeter).
