    at the botom of the door are rubber gromets remove them and lok inside you should see screws in each hole..remove them all and slide the skirt i think towards the rear of the car..and off it should come..:icon_thumright:

    easy..:blackrs4:

    do you mean side diffusers? the grey plastic part on the bottom of the door with a triangular shape to it?
    m4 screws if so.

    There aren't any side skirts on the 8L S3?? There are some little corner pieces that are attached to the sills just in front of the rear arches.
