    Headlight removal without bumper?

    Can anyone tell me how to remove the 8p A3 headlights? Do they come out easily without major dismantling or do I need to remove the bumper (or even more) first?

    I've downloaded an Elsawin, but can't get it to install so I'm struggling to find out for myself....

    sorry but as far as I know you need to remove the bumper,

    I've had my headlights replaced under warranty and it was 3.5hrs to do, dealer said it was so long as they needed to remove the bumper, and they did as I had them refit it on one side when it came back wonky

    this was for xenons but don't see a reason why it would different for halogens.

    Many thanks for prompt reply...

    Not sure I want to attempt bumper removal myself. Shut lines were never as good on my 156 once it had been removed and replaced.

    Thanks,
    Graham.
