    Broken Armrest

    Hi Guys

    I know my car is a B7 an all, but there are more people on here and I think the armrest is the same on the B6 and B7. So my problem is that the button to lift the lid of the armrest has broken on one side so it doesn't/can't click into place. So does anyone know if i have to get a whole new lid or can i just get the button and fit it on?

    I'll try an get some pics up later

    Thanks

    You have to buy a new lid on the B6. Just done this for mine 40 from you local Audi dealer part number V8E0 864 245 A1 7C (N/STK cover) . You can buy a repair kit but it does not work on the B6 type IIRC its for the A3.

    Edited to add: End of part number varies with inertia trim colour.

    I hate the fecking thing, you could have mine if I could remove it without a gaping hole in the console!

    It just gets in the way, and is the most pointlessly stupid accessory a car could have when placed in the way of the handbrake and gearstick.

    As much use as tassles on a steering wheel LOL

    Bum. another 20 I've wasted!

    But it did only take 2 days to get it, VAG parts are good, but they do take a week or 2 to get delivered sometimes. (and I hate waiting for things!)

    This sounds like the same problem I had on my S3, see if these instructions help: http://00626e1.netsolhost.com/formoshun/s3/Armrest.htm. It was a DIY job I did with some help from someone on this forum, can't remember who now
