Keep your 1999 Audi A6 headlight assemblies clean and in good condition to receive the optimal level of light from your headlight bulbs. If an assembly is cracked or scratched, you may risk damage to the wiring system in your car if water leaks into the electrical components of the light. Buy replacement assemblies from an auto parts store or Audi dealer and replace them at home.
