that would be pretty weak if it didn't. the b5 owners manual has all kinds of diy maintenance stuff in it.

Yeah I was trying to figure out how to do it. You gotta remove the whole headlight or else you can't get to the bulb at all. This requires removing 4 torx screws (torx bit 30) and removing the headlight. Then remove the cover and then change the bulb. It took me a couple minutes to change them and put them back.

Then you have to re-align your lights so that the line up. I will try to find pictures for you.

donm3ga: The steps are similar to the instructions shown here: http://www.kolumbus.fi/jouni.auer/pr...xenonplus.html. There are a few things different but the screws are in the same exact places.
