I've replaced the small bulb in the hi beam before, but it's really a pain to get to.  You have to pull off the inner cover from inside the engine compartment and twist the bulb holder out.  

As for your headlight, is there a fuse for each light in the mk4?  I'm at work, so my Bentley is sitting at home where I can't look. :-)
