    How the hell do those ds2 bulbs come out of the lense? I have twisted off the ballast connection from rear of bulb. But I can't figure out how the bulb comes out. Is it pull? Twist? Or is there a locking spring?

    On mine (A4) theres a circular locking ring on the outside of the bulbholder that you twist off, then the lamp itself just lifts out.

    Well that was more hassle than it was worth. Ended up completely breaking the inside of the offside headlamp. The internal part moves forwards and backwards :(

    Any advise to weather what is actually broken? Small white part is in the lense too, but that's always been there???

    Hi

    Have you got any pictures?

    The part the bulbs are mounted in - is this the bit that's wobbly? Hopefully you just pushed the rubber mountings of the adjusters.

    If you broke something you may need to epoxy it back together.
