    I think you might have to remove the boot trim surround the rear window. The may also be 2-4 bolts holding the spoiler onto the boot lid at either end.

    I can give you copies to the necessary Elsawin workshop manual pages. Is your A3 a 3-door or a Sportback because there are different pages for each model.
