    I'd have to assume from that observation it must be clipped in. Are there any obvious areas that seem to allow you to squeeze a blunt edged tool in and have a look underneath?

    from the side of the panel nearest to the bonnet you can raise it.. not much but you can raise it enough to see inside..

    from that, i can't see any clips etc.. im thinking maybe some kind of seal or bond around the edge of the screen?

    You're nearly there. These are the instructions from ELSA

    Did you fit HIDs and kill your wiper motor?

    be carful you don't force it though as you may find that it doesn't go back on again and sit flush against the windscreen seal again - leaving a gap at the bottom of the windscreen - i had this issue with my last A3 and apparently the only fix is a new windscreen!!!

    careful you dont snap it as they can be pretty brittle if cold too, was the warning i got when i blew my wiper motor too
