    First thing is take your caps lock off - it seems like you're shouting !!

    Second, and to answer your question, the fastening clip is not available separately. Either you will have to buy a new armrest lid or you could use velcro or similar to fasten it down.

    The A3 isn't listed, in fact no Audi's are listed. The pictures don't look like the original fitment but for the sake of £4.50 you could always try them !

    Emailed.

    Checked his recently items and it doesn't look like he's sold any recently so i'm not holding out much hope.

    Thanks for your help though.

    They don't have any left mate, it would appear they sold yours as a one off. Good find!

    It's a disgracefully shoddy piece of design - I had two of these clips break, thankfully both under warranty so they replaced the lid each time for free. If it had happened again whilst out of warranty I'd have taken it to Audi UK claiming a design flaw tbh.
