    I put some bank notes in my coin tray holder in the dash yesterday. When I pushed the tray to release it the tray has become jammed. It is now sitting 2-3 mm inside the dash and I can't reach it with my finger nails to prise it open. I'm scared of forcing it. Any ideas how I can open it without damaging it? It just won't budge no matter how much I prod and poke it. I don't won't to end up scratching the dash or something. Any ideas or should I just take it to the half witted dealers and run the risk of them scratching it? Ideas please!

    just force it forward given the notes are paper & then you can get something on the paper to lower it so the tray can be fully opened, done it many times, lol

    Also the trim around the tray comes of fairly easily, just pull one of the buttons out as they dont sit in that tight, then lever the trim of with your fingers, dont use screwdrivers etc to take trim of as will slip & scratch

    remove the rectangular surround that's around the tray and buttons, then remove the air conditioning unit by pulling down from the top. you should then be able to get your hand up behind it to release the drawer. if you don't know what I mean, then follow the first few steps in my rs4 start button guide using the link below.

    You could pour hot water into the tray thus turning the notes into mush and removing the obstruction.....Ok maybe not. Don't listen to me.

    leave it in there a while longer,the way the pound is going at the moment soon it will be down to nothing therefore no obstruction and the coin tray will pop open on its own. lol
