    ETKA help anyone? Managed to scratch some trim...

    Hello all,

    Just wondering if anyone with access to ETKA would be able to find out a part number please?
    Somehow managed to pick up a pretty long and deep scratch to the top of the right hand side grab handle/console thingy, nothing too earth shattering i know, but it's bugging the life out of me every time i see it lol!
    Anyone know whether you can get one side seperately or is it a complete unit?, the part number and any pointers on how to remove the thing would be greatly appreciated

    Cheers

    Have a look at this... centre console

    I assume we are talking about item number 17. If you can confirm this I will have a look at the electronic workshop manual to see what it says about removing and re-fitting this item.

    I've had mine out to remove the ashtray, replacing it with the storage part. IIRC, pull up the trim round the gear changer (not sure about DSG) this will let you see two torx, remove the side you need, then there is an allen key under the part you want to change. The instructions are part of the fitting a double din cage for fitting the RNS-E.

    Here is a further link to the pages in ELSAWIN show how to remove and re-install the grap handles (as it calls them!)

    If you're having trouble finding the last two 8mm bolts (which took me ages to find, even with that diagram) take a look at my RS4 start button install guide over at http://audiretrofit.quinlivan.net.

    They're hidden away and quite hard to find.

    Assuming you have double-din it is 8P0 941 561 E 5PR.

    If it is single-din, the part number is 8P0 941 561 G 5PR.

    Remove the surround around the hazard light button\tray and then the tray is held in by some clippy thingies (sorry for the highly confusing technical jargon there!). stick a screwdriver into the top and bottom and it should pry out.

    I'm guessing you don't want us to ask you how she managed to scratch the coin drawer in the middle of the dash with her high heels?

    so..... how come your missus managed to scratch the coin drawer in the middle of the dash with her high heels?

    went down that route until i saw he has an 08 S3 so i guessed its double din, does the 2008 range have single?
