Allroad headlights come standard on most Audi models. In the case of an accident or if you simply want to improve the appearance of your car, you may need to replace these headlights. Bringing your Audi back to the dealer, or to a garage for this job will cost you up to £130. Luckily, this job is the ideal do-it-yourself project that even a novice can accomplish with a torx wrench and about 30 minutes of time.

  1. 1

    Park your Audi on a flat, level surface and turn off the engine. Let the car sit for 10 minutes to cool before popping the bonnet and securing it with the prop bar.

  2. 2

    Go to the rear of the headlight assembly and locate the two T25 screws along the top of the headlight. Use your torx wrench to remove these screws. Be sure to place them somewhere safe so that they do not roll away during this procedure.

  3. 3

    Fit your wrench with an extension. Locate and loosen the screws on either side. Do not completely remove these screws.

  4. 4

    Slide the Allroad headlights out a few inches until you can access the wiring harness. Remove any clips and unplug the wires from the headlight assembly, then slide the headlight completely free.

  5. 5

    Reverse the previous steps to install the new Allroad headlight into your Audi. Reattach the wires, clip them in place. Slide the headlight in to the headlight cavity. Tighten the side screws and insert the top screws. Close the bonnet.
