    Hi all. Since i picked my A3 3 door up last week i've had a anoying rattle from the rear, had a good look today and its the parcel shelf! The piece that holds if fixed into position has broken on one side, hoping that it may be in the boot somewhere or in the tyre well but no luck!
    Anyone else had this happen? if so any clever ideas? or just a case of biting it and buying a new shelf??

    Both mine were missing.

    Managed to find a replacement parcel shelf with a visor for £25

    I kept messaging breakers of A3's on eBay til I found one.

    Is there a fix for this? one of mine is missing and sometimes the parcel shelf catches when closing the boot, it can be annoying. Can you buy the little leg bits that were originally glued on?

    If you can find the hinge bits then glue them back on with a glue gun. Which side is missing!

    Same here shelf and visor are pooped, previous owner has already glued one side on with no great results by the look of things.

    I believe the hinge/clips and the visors come as seperate parts from the parcel shelf. Contact your local Audi dealer and talk to the spare parts department. determine the part no. and search for it on eBay and away you go!
