    Hi guys and gals im looking to see if any one knows if it is possible to take the dash clocks apart so i can remove the chrome rings and is it possible to remove the lense from the head light so i can take away the chrome surround. If it is has anyone got pics on this so i could take a look at. Cheers gareth

    In the DIY guides sticky is a link to A4Mods.com, in there is a step by step guide to splitting the lights and respraying the silver reflector black.

    What did you use to re-seal the lights, i just fitted some S4 headlights bit it looks like i may have to slit and re-seal one of them.

    Can't quite remember as it was a few years ago now, but I expect I used some black silicone sealant, like the stuff you squirt of of a tube when you're grouting... but black in colour, not white! Left it tied up like that for about 4hours in my warm kitchen.
