Side Marker Light Replacement

Post by mikewitas » Fri Apr 14, 2006 11:32 am

Can anyone tell me how to replace the front side marker lights (near the front bumper) on my 2002 VW Golf MK4?

Do the lenses just pop out using a screwdriver? Or must I get inside and behind the fender?

The last time my headlights burned out, I had to pay the dealer to replace them, because I couldn't fit my hand between the battery and the headlight housing. I hope this isn't the case for the marker lights! I've never owned a car where light replacement was such a pain!

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

If am not mistaken you push in the side of the marker closest to the front of the car and then slide the thing out! Im not sure how clear that is lol
