    Is it shown in the manual?

    It's quite likely you'd have to go in from the wheel arch liner.

    Now I see your problem -

    Remove headlight housing.

    Before renewing side light bulb, headlight housing must be cut open at specified location with a sharp carpet cutter.
    For subsequent sealing of assembly opening, housing cover is available.

    Cut dummy cover out of headlight housing using a sharp carpet cutter.
    Turn bulb holder anti-clockwise -arrow- and pull it out of housing.
    Release retaining spring and unplug electrical connector at bulb holder.

    Installation is carried out in the reverse order; note the following:

    Insert new bulb holder with bulb into headlight, taking care not to touch glass bulb with bare hands.
    Close opening in headlight with housing cover from repair kit
    I think the cover is 8K0 998 981 but check with your dealer.

    Several Audi dealers on eBay may help. Pretty sure a dealer sponsors this forum too.
