Update SQL Table Row with GUID after Identity Insert Complete

I need to insert a GUID value in each row after the row is inserted.
This needs to be done using a constraint of trigger to update immediately when the row insert is complete. Default NewID() as a Constraint does NOT work at the insert stage
The field must be set to NULL by default
This statement needs to be run when the table is created.
Pls advise..
CREATE TRIGGER XTM1_Trigger_UpdateGUID_XTM1Manufacturers ON [dbo].[XTM1Manufacturers] 
    AFTER INSERT 
AS  BEGIN   
    UPDATE [dbo].[XTM1Manufacturers] 
SET @ManufacturerGUID = NEWID() Where [dbo].[XTM1Manufacturers].ManufacturerID= @ManufacturerID  
END 
GO

Hello fomand...unfortunately this code returns;  Must declare the scalar variable "@ManufacturerGUID".

it goes like this....

use MSSQLDatabaseName
go

create trigger mysqlautoguid
on dbo.TableName
after insert
as
begin
    update dbo.TableName
    set GUIDFieldName = newid()
      from Inserted
end
