    if you're talking about the side indicator cover thingies then it's simple. Slide the cover back towards the read of car and u shoudl be able to unhook it, if that makes any sense

    No, dont use anything to pry them out. You risk damaging the paintwork and/or breaking the tab off the indicator casing.
    Like he said just push towards either the back or the front (i cant remember) and it will come out.

    Also do it when its warm (its winter!!!!)or warm up the plastic clip before you put it in as its very brittle. Stuck the hairdryer on the other one before I put it back in and it went in easier.

    if you cant get it out you will probably have to remove or at least loosen the inner wheel arch.

    i wouldnt have thought it would be that bad, its only plastic so there will be a few screws dotted about.

    I lost the light unit in the wing a week ago and I managed to get it out with a wire coat hanger. Took me about 10 minutes of wiggling it about

    Funny how the 2 minute jobs turn out to be a fecking nightmare!!!

    your doing it the wrong way,

    under the tyre theres a few screws, lift black the plastic bit, and you can get your hands up to the light, you then click it with your fingers and take it outwith your other hand.

    thats what i did on my old A3
