    Does anyone have a fitting guide for the replacing of sidelights (not the DRLs).
    In the manual it says 'should only be carried out by an audi workshop'-are they taking the pee or is it a ballache??

    Thanks guys

    would be helpful to know if you got xenons or halogen, and if its prefacelift?

    My pre-facelift halogens are in the same "hole" as the main beam bulb. You gotta remove the main beam bulb and follow the wire with your fingers, then should gently pull out. Its a very very tight fit, so helps having small hands! :icon_thumright:

    its held in by a tight fit and its even tighter to get your hands in, i think i ended up reaching behind and upside down to get in there but my hands were still all cut etc

    I had this few weeks back. I pulled firmly on the cables, not too much mind or you will break the cables/plug. I had a few cuts afterwards!

    You need jeremy beadle hands for this!

    I used a flat screwdriver to lever them out slightly then pulled by the wires
