    As above, one number plate light isnt working on my girlfriends A3, ive removed the bulb holder and tested it on my car and it works so its not that, anyone know what else it could be as the other one is fine.

    thanks

    Have you tested the wiring for voltage & checked wiring back.

    Well checking the wiring with a meter would be a 1st, then remove trim & check behind, its probably something simple, couple of screws & about 8 spring clips holds it on iirc, slowly prise it of so as to not break the plastic fixings for the spring clips.
