    How do u fit the Quattro badge back on front grille?!

    Hi all,

    Got my replacement Quattro badge for the front grille from Audi in the end, only Ł9.25 so not too bad!

    Ive gone to fit it and found the old one was stuck on, as the clips seem to be missing!

    But how do I get to the back of it?! as was gonna get some new clips rather than stick it again as didnt seem to sit right!

    The rad is right behind it, but I thought id ask you guys before I attempt to do it!

    Any info much appreciated

    Cheers

    Dave

    you need to get the clip in place on the rear of the grille then hold it in place by threading some brick tie or similar behind the clip and back out. then just push the badge into the clip!
    The difficult bit will be getting the clip on the rear of the grille as the holes are quite small.
    If you cant get the clip on you'll have to take the bumper off. I have never done this but looks quite easy on elsa with only a few bolt to take off.

    I spent a while removing the torqx screws, got the grille forward, and managed to get the new clips on the back of the badge, but it just didnt sit right or feel safe. So I ended up using trim repair tape, double sided, built it up so it sat flush and stuck, then used some super glue on the ends, seems fine!

    So you dont need to removed the bumper or grille to do this mate!
