    Question Changing Fog Light Bulbs in A3 1.8TQ

    Afterrnoon all,

    I've constantly checked this forum out for hints and tips, after owning my A3 for almost a year, I've now finally saved enough to start my mods.

    First is first, how do you change the bulbs in the fog lights...I've not found anything on previous threads that can help, most of them refer to S3's...can anyone help?

    Cheers.

    If i remember correctly, im sure you have to take the front bumper off, but dont quote me on this, otherwise might be a case of jacking the car up from the front and getting under it.

    Nono, you take off the lower grill covers and reach your hand onto the back of the fog and twist off the bulb.

    I have that kit, and even with the Fog light out I had a hard time working out how it would be changed. As it was new I never bothered..Good luck
