Question about 2006 Audi A4
I had to replace a drivers rear brake light. THere are 4 bulbs. It snapped back into place fiine . When I checked the passenger side rear light assembly i notice it was missing the top bulb. So I put on in it and then it would not snap back into place. I discovered the hole on the top passenger side will NOT accept the bulb becasue it is a small square hole on top unlike the drivers side. that has 4 round holes to accept the bulbs. What's up with that ?
That's the rear foglight socket. The rear foglight idea is European, and they ship the Audi over with a rear foglight as well, but it's only on the driver's side (that's the way rear fogs are done in Europe). That socket is fully powered though, and wired to the same dash switch as the driver's side rear fog. What you can do (what I did on my 99 A4) was to use a drill and **** out the rectangular opening in the rear taillight panel, and then put a bulb in that socket. Voila, instant dual rear fogs.
This is a good idea because in Europe, the police understand that a rear fog is only on one side. In the US, our police don't always know that, and you may get pulled over if you have that on - they may think you have a blown taillight bulb. Do the dual fog mod as described above - it'll save you the hassle and it looks better too.
