Hey.

I am new to audis and was just wondering if anybody could help me out....

I wanted to get new headlights for my A4 since mine are slightly yellowed however does anyone know how complicated this is to do? I have heard from some people the front bumper may need to be removed?

If anyone could help me out and fill me in on how to do so and how complicated this is that would be great!

You need a T30 torx bit and an 8"/12" extension bar. Three torx screws hold the housing in place, two on top, one near the fender (use extension bar/flashlight here).

The bumper does not need to be removed though correct? [confused]

No, of course not. Quite simple to remove the headlight. Good luck.

i also have a headlight question. i just got 2 piece depos and it looks like there is a screw that goes sideways on the inner side of the headlights (near the grill not the fender like previously stated) My car is a 97. Does my bumper need to come off?
