The easiest way to do it is to pull the headlight out of the car. This isn't hard, but you'll have to have a T30 Torx bit to do it. There are three bolts that secure the headlight. Two are on top of the headlight - you'll see them right up there on top when you open the hood.

The third is harder to find. Look where the outer upper corner of the headlight meets the top of the fender, above the corner indicator. There is a lip on the fender that runs all the way back to the base of the windshield, where the edge of the hood sits when it's closed. There is a round hole in that lip near the headlight (just behind it). Shine a light down in there and you'll see the third Torx bolt. Take that out and you can slide the headlight assembly forward. You shouldnt' have to take it fully out of the car, just take the bolts out and move it forward.

Then remove the dust cap on the back of the headlight, pop the connector off the bulb, undo the spring clip holding the bulb, and remove it. Install the new bulb (wipe down the glass portion with your t-shirt to get any skin oils off it, as they'll burn it up quickly), and then reassemble in the reverse order.

At least on the driver side, there really is no reason to remove the entire headlight assembly. I was able to swap out the bulb fairly easily but simply removing the dust cap, popping the connector off the bulb, and then undo the clip holding the bulb in place. The just reverse order to install the new bulb. Took about 3 minutes.

    1. Remove airfilter hose to gain access to headlight, it is fairly easy as it pops out on two sides.
    2. Remove the 2 screws (T30)
    3. Remove connecter plug, by pulling it out gently.
    4. Remove black cap.
    5. Pull silver clamp to the right to free the bulb.
    6. Take out the bulb and insert new one(NB!!! DO NOT TOUCH NEW BULB WITH BARE HANDS AS THIS WILL BLOW THE BULB IMMEDIATELY, USE DISPOSABLE GLOVES OR SIMILAR)

Change the side light on an aidi a4 1999


Sidelight may mean the turn signal on the side of the car (sidemarker) or the turn signal right next to the headlights.

To replace sidemarker, you need slide it toward the front of the car. You may need to use a little bit of force. Then, pry the bulb out of the fencer hole with your fingers.

For turn signal light next to the headlights, see if you can figure out how to do it from the You tube video:

My right side headlight on my 1999 1.8t audi A4 isn't working..and Im wondering where the fuse box is?


Most likely this is not a fuse if it is just one headlight. Replace the headlight bulb and that should resolve the issue. If you have already done that start checking the wires for shorts or breaks and test the light switch itself.

For Audi A4 the fuse box is located on the left side of dashboard behind a plastic cover (for left hand steering wheel vehicle). On inner face of the plastic cover you will find the fuse diagram.
First fuse on first row from left upper corner is Fuse Nr.20 = F20 (15A) - RH headlamp low beam, headlamp adjustment.
First fuse on second row from left upper corner is Fuse Nr.21 = F21 (15A) - LH headlamp low beam, headlamp adjustment.

Audi A4 "left dipped headlight" problem


Hi,I dont know if your Audi has the same problems as SAAB and VW but they suffer from what is called a dry joint on the circuit board inside the headlamp control relay,what happens is as the board heats up it causes expansion/contraction on the bad solder joint causing all sorts of component failures headlamps just being one of them,remove the relay and open it and on close inspection you will find the (dry joint/s) if your handy with a soldering iron a fraction of the price of some of these relays,you can re-melt the solder on the bad joints to cure the problem.

Audi A4 "left dipped headlight" problem


I have the same issue on my 2002 A4. According to my Audi dealer mechanic, there is a sensor on the front suspension that controls the angle of the headlight. Replacing this may resolve the issue.

Change the Front indicator on an Audi A4 2001


Take out the two Torx bolts on top of the headlight assembly. Then there is a third hidden bolt. Look through the holes in the top front of the fender, above and behind the headlight's turn signal portion (you'll probably need to shine a light in there) and you'll see the third bolt. Remove that and the headlight pulls straight forward and out. Then you can change the bulb.

Audi A4 "left dipped headlight" problem


AUDI A4- 2005. There is a technical service bulletin for this exact problem. take it to the dealer when this issue has happened while driving. During a daytime drive when cold see if you cant get the light to fail while circling your dealer. As soon as you pull into the service drive do not turn the car off do not flip the switch. I am an Audi Technician for a dealer in Birmingham alabama. Personally this is not my favorite repair to perform; What audi states is that if the bulb flickers the bulb should be replaced; if one side fails the bulb should be swapped left to right if the fault continues with the bulb the bulb is at fault; if the bulb is swapped and the bulb fails again on the same side it is the module. NOW: I currently am working on a 05 A4 that both bulbs both modules have been replaced and Audi has no clue what to advise on a repair. THIS IS AN ISSUE if it has happened to you ask if there is a TSB for this issue or try to find it for yourself.
