Try to trace the power cable from the bulb to the ballast

If the assembly is similar to the early Q7's, it looks like it's under the headlight connector

Should be mounted on the back of the headlight assembly IIRC.

On the bottom of the headlamp assembly, accessible after the assembly is removed from the vehicle. 2010+ is different than the older versions, but very similar.
