The complete headlamp unit has to come out. It is held in by about 6 or 7 hex headed screws. You need a long handled tool for this, but they are pretty standard these days. Once these are removed the unit comes forward and allows access to the bulb. Replacement is a reversal of the process.

take out headlight theres 2 hex bolts at the top f the unit which u need to take right out and 2 hex bolts at the back of the unit which are on a slide so only have to be slackend 5 minute job

I have a 2002 A4 Quatro. I removed the two star bolts located at the top of the unit then loosened the other two star bolts located at the back. The headlight assembly does not have to come all the way out in order to replace the turn signal. Pull it out far enough so you can loosen turn signal bulb assembly. I had to remove the plastic covers on top of the engine compartment to get to the two bolts in the back. Snamps right back in though.


On my 2002 A4 Quattro, there are two screws on top of the headlight assembly(obvious) and two behind it (not so obvious). And they're #T30 Torx, not hex (allen). All four screws are under the hood. On the passenger side, to get to the two screws behind the light assembly, you must first remove the plastic air duct (3 pieces) that lead from the grill to the air cleaner box; this requires removing two Phillips head screws that attach the forward-most duct piece to the grill. The 3 duct pieces just snap together. When reassembling the duct, I found it easiest to install the front one first.

The 2 things I would add are: 1) there really are only 4 screws to remove. The top two are easy. 2) The other two screws connect the bottom of the headlamp unit to the vehicle. In order to get the bottom 2 out, you'll need a screwdriver about 10 inches long to get leverage for the #T30 Torx. I'm not a mechanic either and I was able to do this in less than 10 minutes once I had what I needed. Cost: bulbs about $4; T30 Hex at Lowes for about $5.
