With great difficulty :wink: :lol:


Easiest way is prolly to take out the headlight, less risk of fingers on bulbs

I've just realised that after owning a MK6 in the past and having driven dozens of them, I have never had to change a headlight bulb in a MK6, unlike my MK7 which gets at least one every 3 months :lol:

Was pretty easy actually just changed headlights and sidelights now. Before I changed them all, both sidelights were not working, changed both of them now and driver side is still not working, thought it may have been bulb so changed it to another one and its still not working. Could it be a fuse or dodgy wire? What's a good way to check?

Sometimes the bulb holders for the wedge type bulbs can be a bit intermitant, if the bulb isn't properly lined up the connections aren't made
You can see if power is getting through to the holder using a multimeter
