The "centre brake light" warning has just come on, but I can't see any way to get at the light. It looks like it's part of the spoiler.

Does anyone know how to remove / replace the light without removing the spoiler?

I had mine out last week - took a bit of working out but it's all done from inside!
You have to remove the trim around the rear window and you can see the rear of the light through the slots left. you have to slide the (brake light frame) to the right through the holes and it'll drop into the void - the light then lifts out from outside followed by 3 metal clips and the frame.

Replacements are £36.00 + vat from Audi and are a sealed unit.
