Personnel: one hubby
Ed found that the right headlight going out is inherent to the New Beetles (so, if you have one-just give it a good whack right above the headlight when it goes out to fix iti if it's a connection issue, it will come back on.)
He also found step by step instructions with a Flickr photo gallery. The headlamp was replaced in no time.
Now I can see on those trips back and forth on the back county roads when we head to scouts!
