SOURCE: bulb replacment

The bulbs are changed from the rear. There might be a weather cover, once its removed you will see a ring or clip holding in the bulb , remove that to remove the bulb. Install in reverse order. And a little known fact most parts stores will install bulbs for free when you buy them.

SOURCE: replace bulb

Depending what side you need to change? Ive changed loads of these for my customers over the years, Golf's and A3's can both be a little tricky. Directly behind the lamp assembly you should see a large single piece plastic cover. x2 tags are visible at the top and have to be depressed for the cover to tilt backwards and upwards to lift out. Be aware, these tags can break so pushing the cover inwards slightly whilst depressing these tags will lesson the chance of breaking. The dip beam bulb is normally a type 499 and will have a 2 wire connector plug. Pull this straight back to remove. A sprung steel clip holds the bulb in place. With a torch you will see an obvious end to this clip. Depress and ease to the side to bring it out of line with its recess. It will no swing backwards and allow the bulb to be removed. Note the tag is upper most on the bulb. Dont touch the glass of the bulb with your fingers, hold it by the base, then reassemble in the reverse order. Hope this helps? Good luck

SOURCE: how to change front struts on 2003 Audi a6

You would be better off to pay $16.00 for a haynes repair manual for that car, it gives a step by step procedure, It would take a lot to tell you on here. If you are going to change the strut springs to the new ones, you need a spring compressor, and if you don't know what your doing and be very careful, and the spring slips and hits you, you will be severelly injured.

A6 turbocharged. Whyu does it smoke when it covers a 120km per hour?

I am going to say 'blown turbo'. As I understand it, they needs replacing every few years. They are susceptible to heat and incredible revolutions. They have to be lubricated, the seals go, and you get smoke.

I have a 1999 Audi A6 quattro my right brake light went out I went to to switch the bulb and the bulb was OK but wont come on now I can't put my shift gear into gear without turning my lights on

There's should be a shift interlock that prevents it from being put into gear unless the brakes are on; check if the fuse it good for the brake lights; it seems to somehow be tied in with the parking lights, which may be feeding into the brake light circuit.

My 2003 audi a4 convertable is jumping out of 1st gear sometimes can you sugest what might be causing this

Whenever a stick shift is jumping out of gear you think transmission.
If the first gear has some teeth that are chewed up then it will cause this to happen.

First check your motor and transmission mounts to make sure excess movement isn't pulling your car out of gear

Second check all the shift linkage bushings to see that the car is in fact pushing fully into gear

Good luck!!

Gear shift of f-150 is locked in park. The truck

Is the CHMSL ( Center High Mount Stop Lamp ) working ?
Is it a regular bulb, or did it get changed to a LED ?
If it is a functioning factory type bulb, the shift interlock solenoid is the cause.
Until you can fix the CHMSL or the shift interlock, you can turn the key to the run position ( do not start ), press and hold the brake pedal, shift into neutral, and then start the truck.
Your MY the shift interlock circuit and the brake lamp circuit are the same.
Usually the shift interlock stops working when the brake lamp fuse is blown, or if the bulbs are out ( truck does not see a load on the circuit ).
If LED tail lamps were installed without load resistors, the shift interlock circuit will not work ( looks like a burnt out brake lamp bulb )

2000 Audi A4 quattro with abrupt gear shifting & low oil pressure

I hope that you had the proper weight oil installed, at your oil change. If your oil is up to the proper level, and it's rattling ,this is VERY bad. White smoke usually means steam in the exhaust, and that means a blown head gasket. Check your coolant level. I wouldn't drive it anymore......until someone knowledgeable can diagnose it!!!!!
