Default LED door handle replacement query !

Guys,

The light on my passenger side exterior door handle has went out on my 2016 S8, and I'm getting one from Audi today. Don't suppose any of you know whats involved in changing it ?

Thanks in advance for any help !

Cheers !

The handle comes off by loosing a torx screw which is under a rubber plug, you should then pull the handle and it locks "open" and the entire thing comes away. Couple of connectors to unplug at the front end.

Then you remove the "guts", from memory the keyless bit comes out first then the LED module.

Reassembly is reverse of the above. That said, more than once I had a nightmare with a handle, clearly had been off before and was broken. Dropped part of the mech inside the door, had to strip the full door to fish it back out! Good luck

I'm not sure how much the dealer is charging for the part, but I have replaced two sets on D4s, with LED's from Aliexpress which cost <30 shipped for the full set from memory! When one goes, they all usually follow.

Cheers guys !

Will have a go at changing it the next decent day I have off. That could take a while though ! Ha !

Just wanted a little guidance so I wouldn't break anything while disassembling.

For your own reference, cost from Audi was 12.59 plus VAT.
