    How difficult is it to replace the slam panel?

    I need to replace the slam/crash panel on my A3 following a small bump. Does anyone know if you have to remove the radiator and aircon rad or can they just be put to one side?

    Thanks

    The rads can be moved to one side quite easily.

    It's literally bolt off bolt on. Make sure you get an OEM one though as I had a non OE one and it didn't quite sit right on my old Leon.

    very easy mate i did mine a couple of days ago. takes around a hour and half from start to finish

    undo the 2 spline bolts
    take off the impact bar
    4 bolts holding the rad in place
    3 bolts holding the headlights in

    swap over and replace

    easy job
