    Has anyone got a guide on how to refit the A3 8P

    Just bought a black roof liner, changing out the horrible cream one but can't seem to find any how too guides.

    More importantly I hope it goes in through the boot and not the screen?

    Any help, advice or pointers?

    Cheers

    Or look at where the bolts and screws are on the one off the new one and look for them on the fitted one job done

    just undo grab handles ,remove sun visors,and undo side plastics ,rear to pieces have to come out as far as i remember as do the a pillar trims ,rest can just be loosened and dropped down slightly,then slide roof liner out through boot ,liner has to be bent slightly on exit through the boot .
    take your time ,dont stress .
