ok si i finally firgure out how to change the headlight bulbs on the new b7 without removing bumber or anything,its actually p[retty easy and it takes about 45 minutos to an hour soon ill be posting pictures to create a guide for this,oooh yea and thanks for all the replys (they were none) im just being sarcastic lol so anyway wait for pics soon
On BMWs generally all you have to do is turn the wheels to one side so you can access the plastic cover in the wheel well.
Unplug the cable to the bulb (make sure you turn off the headlights!)
Then you can release the wire clip holding the bulb in the headlight.
Reverse the steps and your done.
on "older" D2S equipped headlights, you should be able to access the headlight from the top (open hoood) remove dust cap from back of headlight, unplug from bulb by giving ballast plug quarter turn counterclockwise (like opening a jar) and then either release wire clip or turn plastic bulb holder to remove the bulb. Reverse steps and you're done
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 )
I'm new to the forum and I have an 06 A4 Quattro 2.0T 6spd M, but I find that the lighting is horrible. The dealer said that they set the light stance low on the driver side as not to blind on coming drivers, but I had better lighting on my VW GTI 1.8T.
Any suggestions that won't blow my lease, won't change fuse/electrical and yet give me more visibility?
And yes I look forward to the pictures/description as to how to swap the bulbs.
Thanks so much in advance--very informative forum.
Keep it up!
Again thanks for your library of knowledge and posts.
I'm looking for more brightness ideally. Even on the passenger side I feel it lacks brightness. With the added caveat that I don't screw my lease.
