    Anyone know how easy it is to remove the lid.

    I've taken a look but theres no obvious fastenings like bolts etc but am sure it can be removed.

    I'm having mine retrimmed to match the handbrake so it will have 2 seams added complimented with the silver stitching, I'm a sucker for detail :), just need to know how to take it off before I go on saturday.

    Cheers Spin

    Not chronological date wise but in correct order of ownership. I traded the 06 A3 in against the 05 A4 when our daughter was born thinking I needed to get all sensible, that lasted 5 months then I bought the S3. Thankfully I can see this being a long term ownership as it makes me smile everyday.

    i guess u mean to remove the lid of the armrest yeah? just squeeze the two black arms inside together. Thats how i did mine, was very awkward but its the only way i could see to do it

    Can't you just remove the whole armrest with the single bolt.

    Then let the trimmers worry about taking it apart if indeed they actually need to.

    For me that would be a better option than risking breaking anything.

    Its fairly easy to take the top off, as said above just pinch the two clips together and its off. The plastic is very hard so won't break easy!

    Another arm rest question.

    The catch on my broke the other day...it now has no 'pressure' and therefore when I put the lid down, it doesnt click shut - the latch is simply loose.

    Is there an easy fix?

    Another armrest question,sorry.
    Anyone else's handbrake leather getting worn by it ?
    My handbrake has a disctinctly worn patch,which is the sort of thing the bloody lease company pick up on when they collect the car,followed by a bill !
