    Isn't it held on by a bolt from inside? I think you need to remove some trim to access it.

    not sure about about the fastest way to do it but I have been told that the B5 and B6 are VERY different and I know Audi quoted 2hrs per door + parts (new metal trim and clips) to fix it.... can't rememebr if they were £10 each tor £20, but it stick in my head "£40 for 2 metal triangles, but about £400 to fit them!"....

    would be great if you could get some pics to help with a "how to" guide....

    I think the problem is that you need to get the door card off to get to the bolt - but like I said, I've not actually done this myself - I have had the new parts sat in a box at home for about 2yrs! I can't afford to have my car out of commission, so have never had the balls to have a go at it myself.

    i read somewhere you have to remove the door card then remove the top frame off the door to get to 2 bolts but it was a while ago that i looked into it.

    btw they where £25 each from audi.

    so 2 yrs ago, £20 each sounds about right... in which case, I'm pretty sure Audi quoted about £400 for the labour to fit them...
