The 2000 Audi A4 was designed with a composite headlight system, which means the bulb requires replacement when it burns out. The composite system takes less time to replace than on cars with sealed beam headlight systems, which require the owner to change the entire headlamp. You can purchase replacement headlight bulbs for the 2000 Audi A4 from an auto repair store and replace them yourself.

  1. 1

    Remove the rubber protector from the back of the headlight assembly by pulling it off. The protector is designed to keep water out of the headlight assembly. You will see the electrical connector plugged into the headlight bulb once the rubber protector is removed.

  2. 2

    Pull the electrical connector off the headlight bulb.

  3. 3

    Squeeze the two ends of the metal retaining wire and rotate it to the side. The retaining wire holds the bulb in place in the headlight assembly.

  4. 4

    Slide the old headlight bulb out of the headlight assembly and discard it.

  5. 5

    Insert the new headlight bulb into the headlight assembly, taking care to line up the tabs on the bulb with the slots in the headlight assembly.

  6. 6

    Push the retaining wire back over the headlight bulb. You will hear a click when the retaining wire is properly installed over the headlight bulb.

  7. 7

    Plug the electrical connector into the back of the headlight bulb and press the rubber protector back onto the headlight assembly.

  8. 8

    Repeat Steps 1 through 7 to replace the other headlight.
