    2009 facelift sportback door card removal

    Got the new window switches and mirror adjustment switch in the post (you know the ones with the chrome tip) and have the rears done as it didn't require the card to come off but I need to access the fronts by taking the card off

    Now before someone says "search!!" I already have and only found a guide for the pre-facelift and 3 door.

    I have found two of the screws - one at the bottom of the door card where he puddle light would be and another in beside the unlock/lock button.

    Are there any more than this? I've tried tugging the door card and its not for budging.

    All help is appreciated! :D

    Have you taken the silver trim off?

    IIRC there are 2 T25 screws hiding under this that need to be removed.

    When these are removed, start from the bottom right corner using a trim removal tool or well covered screwdriver and prise the door card away from the door, just enough that you can get your fingers in... when you get your fingers in then give it a good tug... it'll appear to be very tight, but this is just Audi's excellent build quality and use of spring clips. Unclip all of the bottom then working up you should now be able to slide the door card off by lifting it up and out of the window guide.

    The door card will still be held onto the door via the handle cable, which is easily unclipped, and the grey door module plug, which again can be easily unplugged by lifting up the locking arm and removing the plug.

    2009 facelift sportback door card removal

    I think you're thinking about the preface lift Jonny as the only silver trim on my door is the decorative trim at the top of the card

    Under this there are only clips holding it on and I've removed everything obvious that I can see.

    Should there be 3 torx if so where's the other hiding at?

    The below is showing the passenger door and its he same under the trim on the drivers side.

    Ah, my bad Chris!

    Just consulted Elsa...

    The bolts to be removed are at the following arrows:





    Then the door card will clip off, and remove the plug / cable as I mentioned in the previous post also.

    Hope that helps!

    You're a star Jonny!

    It's started to rain so it'll have to wait until later

    I'll keep you updated on how I get on.
