    Hi

    A6 Avant 57 2.0 Tdi S-Line

    I'm struggling to find the easiest way to replace the drivers-side side-lamp bulb. Filter hose is in the way. Take the filter off/out and still can't get at the back of the lights to replace the bulb. Halfords bloke admitted defeat tonight saying I'd have to take it to a garage. Another forum I've read says that the bumper has to come off !!

    Anyone any ideas

    Cheers

    Jon

    Right worked it out & taken some pics I'll do a proper write up soon but you dont go through wheel arch for main dip & side lights only for indicator bulb & then all you do is prise off a small u plastic cover
