    I’ve got some replacement sidelight and full beam bulbs to fit to my 2003 S3 (facelift). Was just wondering if anyone’s knows how to remove the headlight cluster to gain access to the bulbs? I’m aware you have to remove the front bumper which isn’t a problem as I’ve done this before just not sure which bolts have to be un-done to remove the headlight.

    And help would be greatly appreciated

    there are three t30 bolts that need to be undone. The two up top are obvious and the 3rd one just needs loosening but you need a couple of extensions on a 1/4" ratchet to get to it - it' down in the guard in the outermost corners

    As @IanPG says,here's a photo with the bolt holes marked...you can see the 'cutout' in the headlight body where you gain access to the 'hidden' bolt...

    I've only ever done 3 and have removed my headlights numerous times (thanks to those rusty rubbish adjusters)
