    Interestingly I have just had a bulb indicator symbol pop up in the info display telling me that my front n/s fog light is out (the one in the lower grille/spoiler), even though I have not used it recently.

    I can't seem to get rid of the symbol and need to change the bulb and wondered if anyone new what's involved as I cant find anything in the manual and can't obviously see how it's done. So before I start a trial and error process I thought I would ask the people who usually know.

    Thanks for any help.

    Here is a page from the workshop manual showing how to change the fog light bulb on an A3. I assume it will be very similar for the S3.

    similar thing to me at the minute

    i have posted up here before about my rear lights

    everytime i get into the car the dash info beeps at me and tells me my right rear light is out - i know thank you very much but for some reason you stupid car you keep blowing the bulbs everytime i change them!!!

    anyone any idea why this is happening??

    the bulbs are definately being blown - they work for a very short period of time then they go out!

    i havent been using bulbs supplied by audi, but bulbs are bulbs (as far as i know!)

    thanks

    Are you sure the non-Audi's bulb have the same amp? bulbs blow out prematurely if current is too high. :think:

    Thanks guys.. The S3 Grille doesnt seem to have the same release tabs as in the A3 manual but I'll have a closer look. Anyone know?

    Bulbs will probably be double the price at Audi. It usually follows the smaller the part the larger the cost.

    you could have a go at audi and try get them to replace it under warrenty but usually bulbs are not covered under warrenty! but since yours is so new they might make an acception!
