    Removing clocks from A3 tdi 2.0 sport

    Chaps

    Is it easy enough to remove the clocks/instrument cluster?
    How to do it?

    ...to replace a couple of bulbs..

    Cheers

    I'm sure there are no replacable bulbs unless you plan to solder a new one in.

    To removed it, release the steering adjustment latch & pull the steering wheel towards you and down & lock it
    The trim under the clocks pulls out towards you & will reveal two 10mm bolts. Remove these and slide the clocks out. As you turn them to remove it you will see a multiplug on the back. It is held in with a catch that has to be rotated out of the way. As you rotate it, the multiplug should come out at the same time.
