    Phone Cradle

    Is it easy to remove the GSM phone prep cradle from the dash, if so how?

    Cheers,

    You can take off the cradle pretty easily, but you will be left with a square hole in the centre console !!!! There is not a ' blank ' from Audi to fit it or anything, so the only solution is to either get it professionally filled ( about £100 ), or buy a new centre console without the phone mounting ( about £70 )and fit it in place of the original. I know this because I did exactly this when I decided to remove mine. I still find it hard to believe that a company which has ' Vorsprung Durch Tecknik ' as it's motto cannot find a way of mounting the phone which doesn't just leave a great big hole, but there you go !!

    It is a time consuming thing to do, but relatively straightforward if you go slowly.

    If you decide to change the centre console as I did, then let me know and I can give you a link to help.
