Question about 1997 Audi A4
Hello. I own a '97 A4 and a few of my dash display lights have gone out and I am wondering how to replace them. Any advice would be great!
You may be able to reach the bulbs from the back of the instrument panel, you will need to remove any lower panels that block access, if they can't be removed from the back then you will have to R&R the instrument cluster assy and any other unit that has defective bulbs, make sure you get the correct repacement bulbs, they may look the same but have diffwerent luminosity ratings, wrong bulb will be to dim or to bright and hot burning, this can damage the bulb socket, check your owners manual for more info.

Tips for a great answer:
Park your Audi A4 on a level surface and open the hood.
Remove the plastic rivets that secure the plastic engine cover to your engine with the flathead screwdriver. Depending on your engine, there may be either three or four plastic rivets, which are all very obviously placed. Set the engine cover aside.
Firmly pull the ignition coil you need to replace up from the engine. Since it does attach to the spark plug, you will need to apply a little force. Be sure to pull directly up so that you do not bend the metal rods at the bottom of the ignition coil.
Unplug the ignition coil from its wiring harness. Depending on your engine, you may need to use a flathead screwdriver to pry up the loosening latch on the wiring harness.
Insert the replacement ignition coil into the spark plug cylinder and push directly down until you hear a slight popping noise, which will indicate that it has been installed correctly.
Replace the plastic engine cover and secure it with the flathead screwdriver and the plastic rivets to complete the procedure.
