How to replace headlight bulb for a Volkswagen VW GTI MKV, MK5 (late 2000s)
This video shows how to replace the headlight bulb for a 2007 VW GTI MKV. It is NOT necessary that you remove the whole headlight to replace the bulb. I only did so to be able to film it easily and show the details of what fits where. Once you know how everything fits together, it will take you minutes to change a bulb. But trying to figure out where things must be placed while the headlight is still assembled in the car can be difficult since your view is occluded and you must guide yourself mostly via touch. I provide this video as a tribute to the contributors of the golfmkv dot com web site. For years I've used that site to figure out how to change anything in my GTI. This is my way of giving something back to that online community. I hope this video saves you countless hours of trying to figure out how to change a bulb on a GTI.
