    Hi, I'm kind of a noob and want to replace my factory speakers in my 3 door A3. The thing is, I only can see 3 screws to take out, but still, the door panel isn't moving. I don't want to break something so I'm asking her first. Thanks for good advice! :)

    Is it just the three screws and then I lift the whole panel off?

    But the window button is in the handle. Do i have to take that off before I lift, or will it just follow? I'm keeping in mind that the button has cables connected to it..

    Search it on youtube, there is a step by step video guide on there.

    2 screws at top and 2 inside door grab handle. Lift off - don't forget to unlip the exit handle.

    Okay so I got the door panel off. But my aftermarket speakers are much bigger the the factory ones. My new speakers has 4 holes to put screws in but the factory ones only has three. What to do?

    Depends what size the new speakers are, if 5.25" then get some AndyMac mdf adapters
