    The Exterior Designer was so obsessed with making all fasteners invisible, until Manufacturing had to slap him silly and explain they would need an access port to get to the one screw.. He wept.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ron Wilson says:

    That construction represents a complete failure of design.

    This is the type of information that is the most helpful to us mere mortals. More of these videos please 🙏 😭

    is it pronounced audi or audi

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rahva Vaenlane says:

    That's just silly. Instead of small inconspicuous screw or two, or hidden fasteners they designed large ugly "service ports" in the bumper.. German way I guess

    I have found the vehicle's Owner's Manual has a wealth of information on routine tasks such as bulb replacement. Thanks Rainman. Great video.

    Very clever design! Too bad the owners manual wasn’t in the car.

    Remember it? My God this car has been haunting my dreams for months now!! Why on Gods green earth wouldn’t she have returned that car? Or at least sued them and had them pay for repairs?

    Please remember on especially German autos, always replace any bulb with the exact replacement. Using the wrong bulb causes a resistance imbalance, that can create a problem.

    I have seen cars with this access hole ,and wondered what that was for ,thanks Ray

    I’ll never own an Audi but great information!

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars simon worthington says:

    Typical Audi just as well i drive an old reliable Mitsubishi and many original bulbs.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John E says:

    Had to do the same for my wife's Q7.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Edward Demedeiros says:

    Very cool. Good to know.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars HolyDr1ver says:

    Freaking audi's and bmw's… always looks over practicality.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars That Guy says:

    I’m sure some German engineer is so proud of that design. Thanks for sharing the trick.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars foxpon105 says:

    I mean it's an Audi… the way they make them it wouldn't surprise me if you need to remove the entire rear bumper… which requires removing the rear suspension… They're terrible for maintenance.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars EnSolo says:

    Thank you!

    How Much$ in a second hand Audi Lens?
    Because the Rainman just showed you how to make Money – No Workshop required
    Double ended Screwdriver and wire cutters to make that Nice clean beginning for the next guy.
    Oh?! Hi Rainman 😁

    Audis and German cars are a pain in the ass to begin with I’m not a mechanic just owner first time I did work I didn’t realize almost all the bolts are triple square.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Hooper says:

    Good old German engineering
    Why make it simple when you can make it complicated….

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bob Jean says:

    It’s been my experience with Audi tail lenses….when you have indication of multiple bulbs out, that it’s not the bulbs that are bad, but the ground to those assemblies that is failing. Remove ground cable and clean the contacts and reattach should be the first action. Typically solved the problem

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars HogeN1337 says:

    quick google " The taillights are held on with 3 bolts. you need to remove the trim piece from the inside of the tailgate to access the 3rd (inner most) bolt" lets see if iam right 😀

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars pavel deveraux says:

    Very hard, a hole 3 minutes!…..

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Huw Williams says:

    I suspect that those bottom lights only work when the rear hatch is opened to obscure the main lights that lift up with the tailgate.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Zaheer Hussain says:

    Very smart, solution. Cars are becoming increasingly complicated.

    At least its not a Cadillac Escalade rear lamp- (LEDs hard soldered in)-$730.00 to replace!

    I am a welder, I have come to terms that everything I touch that isn't metal is going to break.
    If it's plastic/glass I buy all new because I know that it will break when I remove it.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rick Chow says:

    Send back to Audi

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Max says:
