    This has been bugging me for a while now
    It's on a A6 C6 avant.
    And do they just click in or do I need to pop some mastic round the back to hold them? I'm sure they would have a catch but unable to see as yet.
    Can I get my hand behind the bumper?
    It's the middle 2 on the rear of the car.

    Note I have sucked them back to this position with a vacuum cleaner :) as they kept beeping constantly as they were a long way in.

    Rear bumper is surprisingly easy to remove, dropped mine for the first time last week to get at these,

    3 torx at the rear side of each rear arch
    5 torx under the rear
    And 3 10mm nuts on either side, one under the tail light and 2 further toward the outside of the car
