    A bit of a silly question maybe but how do you change A4 sidelight bulbs? Ive taken my headlamp unit out but cant see how to get to either the high beam bulb or the sidelight bulb!! Do yoiu have to take the dark plastic shroud off the unit somehow as it seems to be fixed on with 6 clips?
    Any info would be great

    when i changed mine, i loosened the headlamps to gain a bit more room then had to move the retainer/clip to one side on the back and the black cover on the back just pulled off. Was then able to access all bulbs to change. Ended up changing all to get rid of the amber ligh bulbs to super white. Also changed the idicator bulbs to the 'soap bubble' diadem bulbs, looks ace now.
