    Does anybody know whether a new clip can be had for a centre arm rest - the one on the A4 I have just bought is broken, causing the lid to fall open whenever you lift the armrest up.

    Thx

    Hiya,
    This happened to me last month. You have to replace the lid. You don't need a complete new armrest by the way.
    Just have your chas num, car reg handy when phoning Audi dealer. My lid inc VAT was £39 which is not bad.

    Good luck, let us know what your dealer quotes you please.

    Mine too has snapped. I though you may have just been able to replace the clip. I suppose £40 isnt bad from the stealers.
    How do you replace it?, is it a simple job?
    Thanks

    Common problem then!

    When I got mine it was broken, but as a condition of sale the vendor replaced it. Pretty good of him really as it cost him about £65 iirc as I have leather seats.

    Halfords velcro strips cut to size down the length of the lid and along the top lip where the duff clip used to reside ....about £3 all in...works a treat!!!

    The catch at the very front of my leather topped centre armrest has just broken today.....probably caused by me just letting it drop shut...its a p*ss poor design, but can the front catch be replaced on its own ?

    or like above am I going to be stung for £65 for the lid from the stealers....or wiat for one to appear on e-bay
