    Need to get at the screws, so the plate may have to be taken off to get to them.

    It's an 07 plate, so like the one I've got in the garage, so the plate fits into the special holder which fits on the front?
    Maybe it's the question that is flawed? It sounds to me like the holder where you can have garage logo's, four rings etc, not the grill itself, although now you mention it, there are about 10 screws on the back for the grill and a few of them might be for this also! Blast, I don't fookin know do I, lol.

    Grille, surround, plate plinth. These are the 3 parts i bought. are you asking about the metal section once you have removed the plate plinth?

    Or by plate plinth do you mean the black audi dealer branded bit and the plinth your refering to is the grille coloured part? If so its just 3-4 screws along the bottom

    thats a good idea, cant find the lead to my camera though.

    the bit i mean is part of the grille that finishes it off, not the part a numberplate goes into then is attached to the car.

    in order it would go: bumper, grille, plate plinth, plate holder (optional) number plate.

    if no one knows what im talking about i'll have to try and sort a pic out somehow

    thanks anyway guys
