Hey, ive got a 2k New Beetle that I want to change some of the interior lights. There are two lights, one on the left and right side of my car above the backseats that i want to change. (they are the ones that automatically turn on when i open a door.) where do i buy black lights that small to put inside? (or even blue??) and how do i install those? can i just pop out the plastic cover and replace them? someone help me with this thanks!

Re: interior black lights?...some help please! (DubLicious)

you can get a manual from the dealer that would explain how to change them without cracking any plastic, colored bulbs a available at most auto parts stores.

Re: interior black lights?...some help please! (impact)

i got it done! it looks great. thanx 4 the help. i just took it to a bulb shop then took it to a stereo installer place and they did it all for free. i even got the bulbs for free
when i took it to the VW dealership they refused to take it apart for me, saying that if i did that and it fused out, all my interior lights would fuse, and it would cost over 2 grand to fix!! he was pretty rude about it too. oh well. i hate my dealership even more now.

So, did you get real UV black bulbs, or just some colored bulbs? I like the idea of having black bulbs inside the car.

Re: interior black lights?...some help please! (PerL)

i just got blue colored bulbs. how much do u think it would cost to get the real UV bulbs? cause allready they are losing their color and turning clear again. i also popped out the red part on the light on the bottom of both my doors and put blue colored lights down there, that looks phat.
