I own a 2000 Beetle I think they may have slightly changed how you pop out the headlight, but on mine there is a plastic button you must press (hard) and a lever you must pull up to pop out the headlight. That's pretty much it then you just take off the back of the casing and switch out the light bulbs.
I've done this twice with no problems but you do need to exercise some caution as I know people have broken the lever before since it is plastic. When you change out the light bulb clean the glide path of the lever so that it won't be hard to change it the next time.
