    I have to do this as I have a new door to fit but didnt think I'd have to remove the wing when I can see the bolts I need to undo when I open the car door?

    if you need a new front door, you will need to remove the wing.

    not looked at the audi specifically, but most cars need the wings to come off to make life easier. Especially when it comes to realigning them up.

    just to answer my own question:jester: the bolt come out from the door side of the hinge , so looks easy enough , just go to strip down the old door at the weekend , not looking forward to taking out the glass and sheet !!
