    Of what I've read I thought this was riveted into place?

    due to that I sanded mind down and wrapped it in some carbon.

    you can remove it, but its a bit of an arse to get out.

    Ideally you need to slacken the internal door frame from the outer skin.

    Done this on my 99 A4. Its actually pretty easy. Roll window down,remove the inner plastic trim, and pull down the foam, you will find the securing nut. Once the nut is removed the part can be wiggled out of place.

    Replacements were around£30-35 from Audi.
