    Hope everyone's having a good crimbo.

    Right, ive started to repair the s3 and last week i tried fitting my new front wing but i got stuck with one bolt in the engine bay, going to have to drill it but anyway, took all the inner wheel arch off, all the bolts in their etc then i began to remove all the screws under the car that holds the side skirt on, did that, went to come remove it and was stuck.

    Now i sat scratching my head until i realised the side skirt is connected to the door sill that has the s3 plates on inside the car.

    How the hell do these come off, spoke to HTC but hes out of the country, says someone with ETKA would be able to help.

    Cheers for reading lads.

    Usuualy stuck on mostly with double sided tape mate, need some effort to get a corner of then slowly with something flat move along trying not to bend/dent the sill itself, the tape is blood good as had same problem with a few parts on audis over the years, especially my A3 sills, damn stuck on well lol, might also have some small plastic clips to hold in place as locators, but mainly its the tape.
