Fog Light on facelift..

Hello! Just bought myself an Audi A5 2013 after getting tired of the old A3 I want to change out the fog Light bulbs and I've read that the bulbs should be h8 with a kelvin grade of 4300-5000k. However can someone point me in the right direction on how to get the bulbs out from the housing? On my old a3 I just pulled out the panel and unscrewed 3 screws, but I don't want to break things on my new a5 so maybe someone can help? Thanks!

Exactly the same, pull the grill and unscrew the bolts. Alternatively you can just do it through the wheel arch liner. I used "S&D H11 55W" that I got from Amazon UK for less than £10. Mine is a 2014 so it needed H11 bulbs

Really easy via the wheel arch liner. 5 mins per side and no risk of breaking tabs etc.

I ended up doing it from the front. Was really easy just to pry off the cover with a plastic tool. Just remember to start from the outer top side. I also ended up using 6000k leds. Looks a little bit too blue so maybe I'll change them into some 4300k after some time
