    Guys, once again I am bowing to the proffesionality and expertise of the members of Audi sport for help. I have a 2004 A4 1.8T (163) Avant, the problem is with the luggage cover. At the slightest bump on the road the cover opens, I've taken a look at it andnotjing jumps out at me, just as a trial I wrapped the lugs in a layerof Black electricians tape invade they wereworn and thisis the problem but items still happening. . .

    Anyone else had the same or similar ?

    Found this on Audizine

    Cargo Cover keeps popping loose

    Seems some strips of the soft fuzzy part of stick-on velcro do the trick.

    Clearly it's a problem scaring the crapola out of avant drivers the world over...

    mine used to do it when i first got the car.

    Fixed it by wrapping a bit of that fabric electrical tape that Audi use around the lugs on the end.

    Wrapped some of the stick fuzzy velcro round the lugs last night. Seems to have done the trick.

    there are 2 main solutions, either put some heat wrap around the pegs or get some plastic inserts to put in the locators. I've done the later, they are about £7 from TPS. I'll see if I can find the thread
