    The front passenger door handle LED is no longer working. Is this a self replacement part or warranty issue?

    I had the same issue on my previous A4 and the dealer had to replace the whole door handle, no idea why.

    Thread Revival!

    The back driver side bulb is gone on the door handle - is this a warranty issue, or something that can be changed/is expected to be changed by yourself?

    LED failure is the same as bulb failure isn’t it? If so, it’s a consumer replaceable item, or whatever they call it in warranty speak

    I agree, but I haven’t been able to get a guide on how to do it. Reading this thread made me think do you need a new handle which might be considered a warranty issue then?

    Depends upon what parts are available, however I'd have thought it is a handle removal jobbie...

    Watched this, and handle cover is removed very easy. Got the LED module out, and now to get a price! Going to try under warranty as it’s LED.....fingers crossed!

    ... and another revival.

    Spike did the stealers agree to warranty fix as it was LED? My stealer recently quoted me £16 for the bulb and said no labour as it was easy to fix. Thinking however, with lockdown might just give it a bash myself?!

    Yes, got my dealer to replace it under warranty. Although I did notice in early March that it had gone again, so another call will be logged once lockdown it over. Frustrating that the same handle has now blown 2nr bulbs!

    Hi all.

    I did this fix myself on my rear off side door, 2 minutes, very easy.

    Had to get my mechanic with an account to buy the part from TPS Manchester North as they’re trade only. I think it cost something like £12 + VAT. make sure you get the door specific part, they’re all different!
