    Did this mod on my 8p3 the other day, didnt even have to remove the grabhandles, i used a socket and extender to loosen the one under the climatecontrol and the two in front of the shifter and just pushed the rubber within the gap

    looking to do this when I get my hands on the wifes black edition. (waiting for plate change)
    currently the top of the ash tray is damaged and this extends into the black glossy trim on the gear lever.

    Can the black trim be replaced or is it a whole new leather gaiter, gear nob and trim combined ?

    Sure the gear surround is separable from the gaiter etc as you can swap them out for the brushed aluminium or piano black - whether or not you can get the trim on it's own from audi I am not sure, but I've seen it sold separately in the classifieds and elsewhere fairly often

    Damn

    Immediate help required.

    Got the grab handles off and want to take the air con unit out.

    I have compressed the clips either side and the bottom of the air on unit is loose on the bottom but I just can get it out. It seems it is held in at the top as well. I have now tugged it too hard and I got it stuck.


    Any help before it goes dark on how to get this damn thing out ?

    So I have the light bar at the top but no way of attaching it.

    I need to buy the trim at the bottom of the pic. However what's the loose reflector bar in the middle. Do I need this as well ?

    I assume this would be the same process for the DSG equipped cars? (does the gearstick surround just pull out as per the manuals?)

    Yes open the ashtray and pull the surround up from the front

    hello everyone, just started the ashtray removal and when I took out the aircon unit a flexiable spring type thing came off too. It's what diverts the blower to windscreen, feet or vents etc.

    Any idea where this might plug into? I'm fginding it very hard to see

    Great site by the way, I'm lesrning far to much which is definitely a dangerous thing....

    Many thanks

    Can anyone tell me if the part number quoted for the tray (8P0 863 301 A) will fit my 2010 8P3? Phoned the dealer today and they said it wasn't the right part.

    Also they couldn't find the 12v socket with flap on the system (8P0 863 387 A) - is that the correct part number? And is it a complete unit or just the trim?

    You've got the correct numbers, the tray has 4PK on the end and the 12v socket has 6PS on the end. I think they both mean black. I've just fitted both to a 2008 facelift a3.

    The socket is the complete unit not just the trim.

    Cheers - think I've managed to order the correct ones through the dealer now so will see when they come next week.

    Great guide - just done mine without any issues and looks so much better and now I have somewhere to put my wallet etc!

    Reading up about the red ambient lighting for this, am I right in saying that you just need to order part no 8P0 864 138 A, then slot it in and hook it up to the old ashtray connector?
