Can't we use these to fix our broken arm rest clips?

    I would also like to know this as i've had a broken catch for years, ever since I bought the car.

    Mine broke a few months ago, pinged off and nearly took my eye out.

    I googled this and I'm pretty sure the A4 and A3 are different parts.

    I was going to glue a little magnet on the base and a small washer on the lid to stop it from flopping open when you lift the armrest up, but haven't got round to doing it yet.

    I brought a couple of those clips to repair my arm rest. I brought one with the Audi rings on. Its Fantastic, it doesn't spring shut like the original but it holds the lid closed and you wouldn't know the difference.

    I recommend you buy the clip to repair the arm rest because I resent paying a silly amout for a new lid
