    Hi,
    I have bought a used headlight replacement for my Audi A3 Cabrio.
    It seems that there is missing bracket.

    Here are pictures of a headlight from google:

    And this is my headlight:
    The bracket that I have circled in red seems to be broken.
    Is it something that can be replaced or clipped on?
    Or is this headlight useless? Also, what does that bracket do?
    Can I install it without it?

    Just ring the parts department or visit them and ask for a 'headlamp repair kit'

    They may ask what year or what headlight but all you need to do is give them the part number on the broken headlight and they will give you the right repair kit.

    In fact, the repair kit may be the same for all A3 headlights !
