Default Side mirror blinker bulb replacement

Anybody know how to get the lens off my 06 driver side door mirror so I can replace the burned out light bulb. I've gently pried on it with a screwdriver, but I'm afraid I'm going to crack it. Any help or pictures would be appreciated!

That "bulb" is actually a series of LED's. They aren't likely to burn out. More likely is a broken wire in the harness where it enters the door from the car.

The led's do go bad; my did at about 30K miles. I think moisture gets in and damages it. Anyway, an easy repair, see here: http://www.myturbodiesel.com/1000q/a...ment-jetta.htm

I bought the replacement part at the dealer (most conveinent), IIRC about $45 or 50 bucks. Good luck.

Just had to repair my passenger side mirror because someone whacked it in a parking lot.

The part number is 1K0 949 101.

I'm having a similar issue on my driver side mirror on a 2010 Jetta TDI. It was blinking rapidly and intermittently for awhile and now has just a couple "bulb" working. The link is a little confusing. Must I remove the mirror to access the light housing?

The glass comes out, then the housing. At that point you have access to the screws to take the inner black plastic off to get access to remove the light.

Its about a 10 minute job.

This is an old thread, but it comes up when you search.
Here is a good video on how to replace these.
