How do you Change, Replace, or Install Broken 1999-2005 Volkswagen Jetta Tail Light Replacement

Fits Years: 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005
All Volkswagen Jetta Tail Lights for sale

Tools required:

  • 8mm wrench

Step 1: Open the vehicle's trunk.

Step 2: Open the small trim door on the REAR of the tail light. Loosen and remove the 8mm bolts (3) that secure the tail light assembly to the vehicle.

Step 3: You can now pull the tail light assembly STRAIGHT OUT from the rear of the vehicle.

Step 4: Disconnect the wiring harness (1).

NOTE: If you ordered your replacement tail light from Go-Parts, it likely includes new sockets and bulbs, as many of our models do. This saves you an installation step! However, if your particular model does not, simply remove the mounting plate (with sockets) from the old assembly and attach it to the new one.

Step 5: Connect the wiring harness (1) to the new tail light assembly.

Step 6: Mount the tail light by tightening the 8mm bolts (3).

Step 7: Secure the trim door closed.
