Replaced Headlamp

The passenger side headlamp in my car went out the other day. I originally scheduled an appointment for tomorrow morning at Bob Lewis Volkswagen, and was told it'd take about forty-five minutes to an hour, and cost about $55. But I then called the Kragen Auto Parts that is near me and they said they had the replacement bulb in stock for $10, and could show me how to replace it.

I got to Kragen and bought the bulb, but the guy who said he could show me how to replace it wasn't there anymore. So I also bought a the Chilton New Beetle Repair Manual. Total cost was about $30. It took me some doing, but I was able to replace the bulb myself. It was a little tricky because it didn't move super smoothly, and a lot of the black sealant gunk came off in my hands. But it's all done now and my headlamp is working again.
