Very easy. Open the bonnet. Unscrew the upper and lower plastic infill bits, unclip then after removing a single screw on each. The lamps are a couple of 10mm bolts and then it wiggles out. Easier to do than write it up on the iPhone.

Our A6 suffers the same problem, I used T-Cut and a polishing machine, it helped, but if it was newer, I'd get the lights changed.

I do the same with my rear reversing light lense which goes yellowy after a while. A bit of t cut followed by a polish and it comes up like new.

Lasts about a year before it starts yellowing again.

I have a big 6" (ooer mrs) 2 speed sander/polisher, but it's too big and heavy really, I tried to find a polishing head to fit a standard 4" grinder a while back but failed [frown] [frown]

hi all

thanks for the films and suggestions

the headlights on the van im doing up are so much better than the ones on my van

the sun in portugal really does go for the plastic on the lights and they have gone a little yellow 

so i would rather nick them from the van im doing up

i think i will cover them next winter
