    i'll explain it in words and then get pics for it later.

    These instructions was how i got the shelf out of my 99.5 A4, so it might work for the 97 but i'm not sure.

    Lay the rear seats down, there are 10 circular openings in the frame underneith. it should be the first openings closest to the rear seats. there should be 3 white tabs poping from the shelf through the inside of the frame. 2 of the tabs are visible just by looking up through a hole but there is one in the middle between the 5 and 6 hole. All you have to do is just push up.
    Afte that you should be able to push up the shelf a little bit but then notice that the rear of the shelf won't lift up. There are 3 black tabs holding the rear of the shelf in place. What you have to do for that is try and lift up the shelf and slide the shelf out fromthe black place holding tabs. That is just abot it, installing it back is just reverse from removeal. I'll post up some pictures later from better directions.

    The rear seats fold down, or at least they do on all other 97 A4's

    Split rear seats were optional up until around 99 unfortunately.

    HAHA No way! It'd have you removing the oil filter and changing the bulb in the ashtray or something /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_roll.gif

    I love the way it tells you in, say, chapter 12 on wheel alignment or something, to "Begin by removing engine, as described in Chapter three". /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_2.gif

    Front speakers are 4" (halfords sell a 5.25" adapter /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif )

    Theres a couple of screws at the top of the outside edges of the doors, and one screw in the hand grip thing. once the hand grip screw is undone, the plasitc piece needs to be removed (downwards), and theres a screw hidden by that.

    Once all the screws are undone, just lift the door card (being careful to remove the wiring as you do it)
