Is your Volkswagen Jetta Trunk Tail Light broken, or the light bulbs are not working? Learn how to fix the problem by replacing the tail light bulbs and the tail light assembly of your Volkswagen Jetta. In this guide, we will be showing you how to replace a rear taillight.


  1. Park the vehicle, set the parking brakes, and open the trunk lid.
  2. On the side with the worn-out bulbs, remove the little plastic cover behind the trunk lid that allows you to access the bulbs.
