    Rear seat removal 3dr

    Hello all,

    Anyone have any tips/diagram for removing the rear seats in a 3dr? A large bottle of water leaked and the seat foam is pretty wet. I suspect they need taking out and putting next to a radiator to try out.

    Cheers

    Scratch that, says retainers need replacing, but i'll see how it goes. They can't be too expensive.

    Retainers don't necessarily need replacing. Mine were fine.

    Whenever the Audi manual says "must only use once" or "replace every time", I've found it to be BoXXocks. If you're careful during removal you should be fine, I'm trying mine today so see if I break any!!
