    pull the trim off the outer window and unscrew the light...... then you'll need some tiny bulbs....to be fair id replace them all as once they start going, you'll never stop taking it all apart....Halfrauds charge around 2 a bulb the robbing ****s.....although i think theres somewhere on the tinternet where you can get em cheaper

    I found the Halfords replacement bulbs weren't exactly the same size - they were a little bigger and poorer quality. Ended up getting them from Audi and was only 12.00 to replace the whole lot. Part number N90051002.
