    If you remove the door card as per the above instructions you can get at the torx bolts that hold the armrest on. If you remove the armrest you should find the part number on the arm. You could then ring Audi for a price or take it to someone for repair.

    Hi
    Anyone know how you remove the door card on a 2011 A3 mine doesn't seem to the trim that goes from the door handle around underneath the arm rest. :think:

    I've just replaced my drivers door arm rest for the same reason. A new arm rest was round about £70 from T.P.S. so went to the local scrap yard and picked up a door card for £25 and just swapped the arm rests. It's done the job.

    Yer I noticed yours was a S3, just the passenger side door.

    Came to about £70 in total with the clips, only broke 1 putting it back so I was very proud lol.
