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.

check fuse, Underneath your fuse panel cover you will see a map of what fuse is what, find the headlamp spot, pull out the fuse have a look at the space between the contacts, you should see a contact wire connecting both post to one another, if not or you see a partially melted wire, replace fuse prob from nearest service station ($2) have you been through any cold or overly wet days when this occurred? any bumps in the carpark? Also consider these elements to the effect it can have on your car, lamps are very sensitive and can be blown from even the touch of bare fingers, they heat to extreme temps, bumps and moisture can cause severe damage, but not usually at once. And finally you can go down the track of popping out the switch in the dash and checking its integrity, not much goes on behind the dash to cause damage so I'd say this would be the least likely.... as you mentioned the stalk prob I'll say this.. indicating stalks and alike are much more "high traffic" instruments due to their multiple use nature and are much more prone to fault. this dosen't cover everything, after checking its not the simpler issues, it just gets a little more complicated checking relays, ecu modules and so on.. I'd also suggest looking up on google or even looking at vwwatercooled.org.au I go there all the time, they are all supa VW / Audi fans and will love to help, just do a search for the same issue posted / answered before starting a whole new thread, not that they would really mind I guess ha ha good luck mate, check the fuses ;7) Chas

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.

you have to loosen the whole headlight assembly to open the covers behind the lights to actually get to the bulbs. 4 screws, 2 are on the top of the assembly(phillips screws) the other two are hex and attach the bottom of the assembly to the car. somewhat difficult to see but look behind the assembly and down into the compartment and loosen the screws(they don't fully come out) just enough to pull the assembly out. open the black cover behind he low bean and there is the bulb
