    Audi SE Fog light conundrum!!

    Thank you Audi for not giving any instructions in the Swedish owner's manual on how to change the fog light bulbs on an SE! WTF is that! ...another conspiracy theory to put more money in the pockets of your dealers! Or maybe you need to roll your trouser leg up and expose your right breast for the right answer Argghhhhhh
    Does anyone have a link or "how to" on the removal process on an SE foglight bulbs. It looks quite different from the S-Line set up.

    Thanks in advance,
    A

    Hej Andy

    Sorry, am an numpty!....I wrote bumper instead of foglight bulbs. Since corrected. Sorry, but please tell me you still don't have to remove the front bumper completely to change the bulbs!

    Apologies

    No problem,

    Not sure to be honest. I was changing my headlights so changed the fog bulb lamps to LED at the same time. But i can't see how you can change them without removing the bumper. I'm sure so other clever person will be able to tell us how!

    Cheers,

    Andy

    It's a bumper off job i'm afraid. I got my mechanic to replace them when I got my headlamps realigned (bumper needs to come off for that too). If you do get round to changing them make sure the covers go back on properly, mine have condensation in them now

    Thanks....they are going back in the drawer then....will have the bumper off after the Summer.....not a big issue....only use them for the coming home / leaving show off function anyway.....so bit of a luxury just now. Need to man up for the side lamp bulb challenge then!

    Cheers

    I did mine recently by jacking up each side and getting underneath the car. Still not easy though.
