    Remove the radio first, then the climate unit and hazard switch surround just pull out (well, mine did). There's about 5 multiplug wiring harnesses to disconnect for the CC unit (if you have heated seats) and the hazard surround is metal and again just clips on.

    (Above instructions quoted for facelift dash).

    I'm talking about the centre console in a facelift S3.
    I've had mine apart for about 2 weeks (see my audio dilemma in the ICE forum)!
    I believe that you can just prize the hazard warning surrond off, but you need to be really careful. With the radio already removed, you can give it a sharp tug from the bottom and off it pops! (oo err missus).
