    And don't forget to undo the head light adjuster that's connected to the passenger rear tie rod

    !!!DON'T FORGET!!! I broke mine. :sob: Of course you can't buy just the plastic arm!! Audi only sells the whole sensor for like 200 quid!!

    Only if you car has factory Xenon's fitted!

    And yes, just push down on the rear hub/wishbone, and it should just pull out!, I did my S3 on my own this way.
