    I have just noticed the lever that raises the boot storage thing does nothing and feels as if the cable is broken.

    How easy it is to replace and once replaced how does the car know its in the raised position so as not to lower the roof?

    Mine was broken on the pully behind the carpet on the left hand side of the boot, Audi wanted £500 as you can only replace the whole unit, so removed the whole shelf and put a tie wrap on the micro swich, worked fine for the past 2years.
    if it's broken just behind the handle you can but these from Audi for about £20
