    So today I got my 2nd set of MY09 lights after the passenger was smashed.

    As I came to fit them, I have noticed the rubbers holding the lights in tight to the body is missing from the shell of the car on the drivers side :( so the light is a bit loose, it fits, but loose.

    My question here is, can I just buy the rubbers from Audi?

    I rang Audi they have NO IDEA what I am chatting about, which is rather annoying to be honest! :(

    Any part numbers or some assistance would be great to get this resolved.

    Thanks guys

    Andy

    no I think he means the square rubber sponge that is stuck to the bottom of the rear lamps int the middle, i think it allows the lamps to squeeze in as tight fit on top of the bumper?
    I know because i replaced mine today and the old style rear lamps have them stuck onto the bottom but the new headlamps just have a green dot sticker there (may be its a clue that your meant to stick the square there.
    I am right Andy?
