    How to change fog bulbs?

    Hi all, does anybody know how to change the front fog bulbs on a 2008 a3 (cabrio), do you have to go to the audi dealer because you have to remove the bumper or you can do it easily?
    thanks

    You dont need the bumper off mate, just jack it up and remove the front part of the wheel arch liner, should be 3 or 4 screws. Pull it away and it should give you plenty of room to put your hand in and remove the fog bulb socket.

    The dealer will charge you 1 hours labour....scary!

    lee fyi with the facelifts you cant get your hand in the back due to undercovers and bumper supportss, quickest way to do it is a sharp tug on the fog grilles and undo the two screws to release the foglamp unclip replace and reassemble and youre done easiest job possible 5 minutes max
