If you mean the side markers on the fenders then yes they do just pop off. All I did was slide the lens over and then use a credit card to lift the edge and it popped right out. If you get the new markers first, you'll see right away why its so easy.

I don't think we are talking about the same thing. These are the side markers for the signals on the front right and left quarterpanels.

00Psst is right, they're easy to remove.

I'd advise getting the smoked sidemarkers from Hella (I think) rather than the VW ones. The VW tinted sidemarkers aren't really tinted at all - they still have a clear lense on the outside. The only difference is the color of the plastic inside the unit. I think the ones VW sells are actually the same lights that were on pre-2001.5 passats. Not an improvement on the OEM ones.

The Hella sidemarker lights are actually tinted so that you can't see the bulb inside. They're more of a change from the OEM ones so they seem more worth the $.
