    HI Guys

    I wonder if any of you know where this unit is and how to get to it ?
    if somebody has the procedure that would be great
    as I have an issue of the contol unit reports errors but the headlights still adjust which point to the control unit in vagcom and audi release notes .
    ( i have a early 4f2 2004 3.0tdi sline quattro )
    so i have a new unit thinking it was by the passenger fuse box , but it isn't there ...bugga

    anybody any ideas ?

    many thanKs

    :)

    its behind the glove box

    you can take the trim down to get to it, or just remove the whole glovebox (which i found easier)

    many thanks for that
    it was just that easy FFS :)
    5 screws 3 on the inside of the top edge of the glove box and 2 underneath on under the fuse box and the other directly opposite and the whole unit comes out .....I was done in under 30 mins with a new headlight range control and now no error ( touch wood & fingers crossed )
    I wish i had know that when i was scrabbling around contorted into UN-natural positions when I fitted my denson Ipod unit and also the cabin air filters .....


    wish i could say the same for changing the running headlight bulbs

    many thanks
    again

    ok an update to this

    I made the system re- learn the headlight levels using the VAGcom all is fine and it learned no problems , it runs trough the headlight dip / raise and set process in the vagcom no probs

    BUT

    when I turn the car on it used to run through a set up where the lights would dip raise and set , it does not do this anymore ????
    the unit I have is dated late 2008 . do more modern cars not bother with this start up any more ??

    or do i need to program it in vagcom if so anybody know how ?

    many thanks

    mine was 8PO907357A and the new one was a 8P0907357J which should supersede the A,
    just been out and checked ant they do actually cycle , but it seems that they do it after the ignition is off after a certain amount of time . the old one did it ever time ..maybe that is what was wrong with it
