    to ASN, what model or year is your S3? So I can move this thread to the relevant section for you to get a response.

    I'll put 10p on it being an 8L. Didn't Def or someone do a HOWTO for fixing this donkey's years ago?

    The truth they're trying to keep from you is that IPv6 has nothing to do with address space; we're actually running out of full stops.

    I found it... Unfortunately the pics are dead now, but the descriptions seem clear enough for you to still get the job done...

    http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/showthr...hlight=armrest

    Perhaps if you do effect a repair in the same way, you might be good enough to take some pics - I'm happy to upload them somewhere to our server so there's less chance of them going missing again?

    Regards,

    Rob.

    I think it's like rain in Wales/Scotland... If it hasn't happened yet, it's about to. Hopefully the link above might prove useful again for the next generation of 8L owners
