    A3 1.8T Sport Headlamp replacement. 8L0 941 029 C

    Hi all i went down to my local audi dealer today and asked if just my headlamp lenses could be changed, the parts guy looked it up on the system and said i couldnt?? Ive looked on a few threads and some people say that pre facelift models which i think mine is (w reg 2000) you can?? Can anyone shed some light please?? Thanks

    mines a 1999 pre-face lift and it was dead easy to do. Small flat screw driver and the clips just pop off. you have to take out the headlamp tho to get to the clips at the bottom of the headlamp.
