    How do you remove the facia around the HU and heaters?

    How do you remove the facia around the HU and heaters? Mine is all scratched and looking tatty. So ive ordered a new one from audi at only Ł23. But how do you remove it without breaking anything?

    Help would be appreciated

    You'll need to remove the stereo and the ashtray. There will be torx head srews behind these. There are also two clip at the top, above the buttons, but the facia pulls out from them easily enough.

    Might have to go and get myself one of them for Ł23. Mines seen better days too.

    Good luck.

    If your talking about the surround thats normally piano black on an S3, then it just pulls out. Feels a bit brutal, but it just clips in.

    the buttons have a clear plastic ruberrised coating on them, like most of the buttons. They are really easily scratched, and look awful when they are.

    Paint will look rubbish. Your only chance is to replace a single button from a donor part or replace the whole unit!
