    Question How many men does it take to change a lightbulb?

    Well from looking in the engine bay, loads!

    How on Earth do I get to the front lightbulbs?! There is no space at all in the engine bay! My drivers side indicator has gone this afternoon and I took a quick look, frowned a little then decided to consult my user manual. After looking for the right page it basically said "don't be a fool! Only a trained Audi specialist could possibly do it because we have left bugger all space for even a child's hand to remove a bulb!!"

    So... how do I do it?

    I have a 1.9TDI (if that makes any difference for the things I need to remove!)

    Do a search on 'Removing Headlights' and you will find all the information you need.

    There are four torx screws which old the light in place, on the O/S one you might need to remove the air flow pipe. Remove the top two screws. The bottom two are a bit fiddly and you will probably need a screwdriver just LOOSEN these, DO NOT remove them. The light should then slide out. Depending on the length of the loom you might need to unplug it from the back of the light. Usually the hardest part IMO.

    Change the bulbs and replace the lights, you may need to adjust the alignment. It's easier to do this than try and do it in situ.
