Today we have a 2012 Volkswagen Jetta and we'll be test fitting a Thule Roof-Rack System. We'll be using the 53-inch AeroBlade Bars, part number THARB53, the Thule Rapid Traverse Feet, part number TH480R, and the Thule Fit Kit, part number THKIT1618. We already have our roof rack assembled according to the instructions and now we're ready to fit it up on the vehicle. The first thing we need to do is open both the passenger and driver's side front doors. We'll set the front load bar up on top of the vehicle. To position it properly, we need to measure 10 inches from the edge of the glass to the leading edge of the traverse foot on either side of the vehicle.
Today we have a 2012 Volkswagen Jetta and we'll be test fitting the Yakima 44" Fairing for the Yakima Round Bar Roof Racks, part number Y07048. To attach the fairing we'll fit the clips around our round crossbar. We'll make sure we position our fairing evenly from left to right. Once we've done that we'll take our carriage bolts and wing nuts and feed them to the clips on the end and then tighten them down. And with that our roof fairing is installed and we're ready to hit the road. That does it for our test fit of Yakima's 44" Fairing for their Round Bar Roof Racks, part number Y07048 on a 2012 Volkswagen Jetta..
Today on this 2005 Volkswagen Jetta we are going to be replacing a burnt out tail light bulb using part number A1156B from Optronics. To access the tail light assembly we will need to pull back the covering and we can access the tail light assembly back here. Before we start disconnecting any wires we are going to go up to the front and pop the hood and disconnect the battery. To remove the tail light assembly what we need to do is disconnect the top harness and lift up the two tabs on the bottom and the whole assembly will slide out. To remove the bulb push it down and rotate it counter clockwise and it will pop out. Next take the replacement bulb and it into the fixture. With the new bulb in place all we have to do is remount the fixture and connect the battery. We have reinstalled the trunk lining and reconnected the battery. Now all we have left to do is test it out. There you have it for the 1156 replacement light bulb from Optronics.
