2000 Beetle Stuck Headlight
« on: Feb 12, 18, 17:24 »
It seems some idiot tried to "steal" the drivers side headlight on My girl friends car and now it's stuck in there good.... The Latch moves about a 1/4 inch and stops... The headlight is sticking out about an 1/8 to a 1/4 inch ... and no kind of pulling/pushing/wiggling will free it.... Any ideas on how to remove it without too much damage??

They just unlock and come out but if they havnt been removed in a long time they can be a real pain to pry out.

If you have it in the unlocked position you can tap it and try to unsieze it or try and pry it out with some plastic tools

Ya... Some asshat tried to pry it out and it just won't come free.... Passenger side was easy.. Cleaned ans lubed it up... but the Drivers was sticking out side and that was the reason for trying to remove it.... it's stuck but good
