    My A3 is going into the bodyshop today for a rear quarter panel repair (some kind soul dented and scratched it)
    To save some money I'm wanting to take most of the parts off that will need to be removed to carry out the repair. This will involve the removal of the rear side window.

    Does anybody know if I remove the B-pillar trim will I be able to access the hinge point and remove the window...?

    Cheers for any help,
    Ian.
