Got one bulb burned out in my left rear tail light, is this something that can be done at home or is this a major PITA?

Re: How hard is it to replace a rear light bulb on a 04 Jetta wagon? (scottyb123)

I can't imagine it's terribly difficult. It's simple in my Jetta sedan, but I don't know about the wagon. Is access to the tail lights similar to a Golf/GTI?
Here's a DIY for removing the Golf/GTI tail lights: http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=2029714
You might be able to follow the same steps to get access to your tail lights, then just replace the bulb.

OP, have you even tried to look for yourself?

Of course not. They were hoping one of us would volunteer to come over and do it for them

Drive to Miami Beach with at least three bottles of beer (no domestic except Sam Adams) and I'll do it for you

Isn't there a DIY.
I would imagine it's super easy and shouldn't take more than 10 minutes providing it's just the bulb.

even if there is, i dont see why anyone would need a DIY to change a bulb whether its in the front or back. take 5 min of your time and look at what you need to do and you can easily figure it out. i mean ****, someone had to do the same thing anyways the first time it was done to make a DIY so whats the dif. between someone else doing it now?

Hell, I'd be surprised if you even know where your tailpipe is located
