Awesome!

Been listening to a beep and looking at a warning on the dash for 2 weeks due to no time to wait in a dealership. It took me longer to join this forum than it did to replace the bulb! 4 bucks and 5 minutes later I'm good to go- Thanks!

Smile Audi A4/S4 Brake Light Replacement

The 2007 A4/S4/RS4 replacement is identical, but even easier as the 8mm bolt has been replaced with a large spacer-nut which is too large to fall down into the interior of the trunk. It can be unscrewed with a flathead screwdriver. 5 minute job tops.
