I've no direct experience of this job but assuming it's a standard halogen bulb it's usually just retained by a spring clip. Do you have reasonably good access to see into the back of the headlight? The parts diagram suggests that the dipped beam bulb has some kind of separate holder (no. 3) but not main beam.

Like Paul I dont have experience of the alhambra bulbs but from around 2010, most VW's went to a design that had the bulb fitted into a holder which rotates into the headlamp.

That link suggests a H15 bulb which is a specific bulb that contains both mainbeam and DRL as its dual filliment, The H15 deffinately rotates in, just twist it counter clockwise to undo.
