Looking to switch the front grill of my 92 Jetta from the rectangle lights, to the set of 4 round bulbs. Just wondering if anyone has done the switch before, and how easy is it? any list of parts ill need before I start?

You will need to swap the rad support, that's the hardest part. Pop the grill off, pull the two brackets off the hold the rad in place, disconnect the horn and the hood release and headlights. There are 4 screws on the top of the rad support, two on either side. There are 4 screws under the head lights, two on each side under each corner of the head lights. The last screw Is dead center between the bumper and the lip. Then the rad support pulls up and out.

The head lights bolt to the rad support. The mounting is different between round head lights and squares.
