    Guide for Removing Back Seats

    Guys

    Looking to remove my rear door cards (3dr S3 by the way) maybe over the easter break so I can replace my arm rests.

    I have never removed the rear seats before or spent a considerable amount of time working out how.

    Has anyone a guide or rough idea on how to do this?

    I believe the rear bench just needs a good pull??

    There are some torque screws in the rear door cards plus poppers.

    Any other info?

    Thanks

    Removing the rear bench is a breeze, just take the backrests off and then pull the front upwards near the edges and near the middle.

    There are plastic clips holding it in place which may have to be replaced.

    I'll have to replace the rear door cards too, will be following this thread for a nice write-up

    Huh, Boycie, I swear I gave you fairly good instructions recently on a thread to remove all that stuff, you dont need to remove the rear upright to get the bench out, can be done on its own, but you do need to remove all to get door cards of.

    Stoke Audi would probably be able to help.
    They're on here or just go their website and tell them you're a member of ASN.
