    can you remove the amber lenses in the headlights

    hiya, as per the title, is it possible to remove the amber lenses and replace them with amber bulbs? Ive seen this done on several B7's though I cant see a hole big enough to take them ou. Unless the only way is to remove the front of the head light with a heat gun?
    thanks for any suggestion or ideas,

    Yep, you need to remove the lens first. If you have a long enough screw driver you can split them without a heat gun as long as yoru careful.

    Once split you take out the indicator bulb, place your screwdriver into the recess and push it up against the inside of the amber lens. Next you get your hammer and give it a good hard hit so it pops out.

    Should only take an hour inc getting the bumper off to remove the lights.
