    how do i get the the indicator bulb front and back

    anyone a clue as how you access the front (especially) indicator housing?? new shape a4 is a little compact in the engine department and there seems no easy way to access,also the rear lights ? is it a case of removing the boot lining and nothing else?

    want to replace the orange bulbs fitted as standard!

    shall be hopefully fitting some new rs4 alu mirrors shorlty is it the same process as gefore when changing them on the old a3/s3? guessing it will be!

    thanx all.

    Re: how do i get the the indicator bulb front and back

    Front's require headlight removal and then they have to be re-alligned (officially) although in this thread some people haven't bothered. HERE
    I haven't done it but I also want to change the indicators and also I want to put in whiter side lights.

    The rears are a doddle. There's a circular bit of trim in the boot area. Pop this open and there's a bolt head. Undo it completely and then hinge the light unit out. The bulb holder then opens from the unit.

    Re: how do i get the the indicator bulb front and back

    done!! rear lights where really easy,the front was a bit of a pain,but nothing to hard.Tried to be carefull when refitting them to a near as poss to before,(marked where they sat b4)changed side repeaters aswell which was the easiest of the lot!

    Everythings working fine and no more orange lights,gives the car a more clean finish i think,wonder why audi etc dont fit alternate bulbs to the horrible orange ones????

    thanx for the help.
