HELP
Im trying to remove the Fog Light Grills on my 2014 Q5 and after looking on YouTube it seems these things just simply pull off, this doesn鈥檛 seem to be the case with mine as I鈥檝e tried believe me.
Any tips or help would be most welcome.
Thanks 馃憤馃徏

Looking at all the examples on ebay they look like they have locating lugs at the foglight end, so uou would need to prise off from the other end. It should just be clipped in place...
Unless someone has had them off before perhaps snapped the clips and decided to use glue....

Thanks for your reply Richard, that鈥檚 my worry. I think if I pull them any harder they will snap and on most YouTube videos for this model they simply just pull off. I鈥檒l have another go tomorrow so wish me luck. 馃馃徏馃憤馃徏
Easy to do (did it the other week to install even brighter LED fogs than I had before), just watch some YouTube videos to see where all the tabs are. Use a plastic pry tool and pull from the number plate side, as there are plastic fingers on the wheel side.

I鈥檝e watched every YouTube video their is and no way does it pull out as easy as that video. So the pry tool will be my next attempt. Thanks for your reply. 馃憤馃徏
Well its easy with a 'plastic' pry tool to loosen some of the plastic catches as you pull. Use the video to know where they are located. You can also access from behind by folding back part of the wheel arch lining. I have done both methods in the past. Both easy :cool:

I have a 2013, I removed a mine a few months ago to fit leds and mine were tough to get off. I snapped the inner lug (opposite end to the lamp) on both but still fit back snug. I followed the same vid above just use a pry tool and give them a good pull!
