    Side indicator removal A3 8L

    Hi all, can any one tell me how to remove the side indicators on a '98' A3 , do you have to remove the inner arch or do they just pop out, i'm wanting to change the original amber ones for smoked ones.
    thanks

    They should push to the back of the car slightly then pull out.

    I had to take the arch liners off to pop mine out. wheel off, 10 or so Torx screws and then should be easy.

    no all you need to do mate, is push either towards the back of the car or to the front of the car then it should just pop out...simple as that mate.

    I had to lever mine out too as they were still solid after pushing them to the rear. I wrapped a screw driver in insulating tape.
