Hey Ifty:
Welcome to the show. To get at my A6 rear lights I go at the from inside the trunk. Remove or pull back the carpeting covering the light assy. Remove the electrical plug. squeeze the two tabs that are holding the three light assy in place.
Make sure you have your radio code before you do this in case you zig when you should have zagged.
Good luck bro :thumbsup:

YOU DONT HAVE TO REMOVE ANY CARPET ETC ON THE A4 -

below is a post i posted on another forum topic.. (try using the search function to find any questions you have, its a massive database now! )


Front or Rear bulb??

If Front... You need to take the headlight unit out if its on the left hand side (due to power steering reservoir, if on the right hand side you can just about get to the cover to remove it...
If you need to remove the head lights .. it simple... 4 torque screws on the top.. undo and slide towards youself.... (place on something soft and remove the plastic cover and change bulb.. reinstall and tighten up..

If on the rear... Open the boot/tunk. just inside the boot about 2 inchs in from the seal on the left and right you will see 2 circle cut outs in the boot lining - get the screwdrive from your toolkit in the boot, lift the circle flap.. under the bolt/srew and slide the bolt out...While holding the rear light cluster.. (2 PEOPLE IS ALWAYS BETTER HERE!!) once the bolt is out lift the light cluster.. (little bit of rocking about and it will lift off... unclick the power wire (Simple clip) and remove the back ocover and replace bulb... (TEST before refitting)

Job done...
