    Xenon Change on a B7?

    Hi, I need to change my xenon bulbs on my 3L TDI and to say there is not any room is an understatement. I think the way to go is to take the headlight out, anyone no how to do this?
    Thanks

    Bumper off job on the B7 to get the headlights out.

    You have to take the bumper off to change a headlight? I have heard it all now, the more I learn about this car the less I like it...

    Yes.

    The B7 was a cosmetic tweak of the B6 - the B6 was designed with servicing in mind so you could change all the bulbs (provided you have small hands and/or don't mind a bit of pain) but when the stylists were let loose on the front end redesign to create the B7 they totally ignored the need to be able to replace bulbs without having to remove major components.

    You even have to remove the wheel arch liner (and it's easier if you remove the wheel) to replace the front indicator bulb on the B7.
