    2002 S3 headlamp issues

    So the drivers bulb went out on me a mnth ago, didnt get chance to change right away and it started working, now its just gone off again!

    so ive swapped the bulbs over, and its not the bulbs

    next up ballast?? or something else to check?
    audi just told me i cant buy the ballast seperatly and its £600 for the headlamp!

    so been looking for a bit more info on how difficult it is to change the ballast?? i dont think my local garage will be interested in this!

    ive found a few ballast units for about £100, but would also look at 2nd hand head lamps

    all information appricated! does anyone have part numbers for ballast, or headlamp

    cheers

    2002 S3 headlamp issues

    Have you checked the fuses yet? Each side has its own fuse. I had a dodgy fuse and ended up buying a new bulb only to find out I needed a new fuse.
