    headlight bulb removal on A4....

    Why does it have to be so bloody difficult? I can't get the plastic cover off at the back of the headlight unit....trying to change the dipped headlight.....easy enough to remove the air box housing and unclip the plastic cover but the cover just wont come off! Even the haynes manual just says 'unclip and remove plastic cover' but its still connected to something as there is no way this thing is coming off!!

    Anyone else had this and got any idea other than removing the whole air box!!
    On my 3rd Audi.....my latest PROJECT...... a 2002 A4 1.9TDi Avant Sport.... wrapped matt white with 19" VMR matt black wheels.

    its easyer to remove your headlight mate 5 min job and should not change the light angle.
    plus you will not get your hands in to pull the bulb out
