    Strange question I know...

    How do you remove the rear parcel shelf in the A4? I need to give it a good clean, but because of the angle of the window etc, it's virtually impossible to get down to the very edges!

    I would like to know this too as I want to take my sub out.
    dodo0903 what are you doing or have you done in the sub department of things? have you put another sub/system in or just changing the sub as it's broke?

    thanks

    Ive heard some decent free air subs in the past but cant beat enclosure.Some dont like the Box in the boot though so Freeair aint a bad option.
    I like the specially built sub boxes that slot in the corners of the boot, very smart.:o.k:

    Hi Sorry it took so long but here we go
    (this all is for non folding seats!!!)

    1. remove head rests
    [​IMG]
    2. these just pull up. (they hold realy good so give it good pull or try turn them when pulling up)
    [​IMG]
    thats how they hold
    [​IMG]
    3. now pull the top end forward and up (it should slide out)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    these are the bottom end (holders?!)
    [​IMG]
    4. now remove the sub cover carefully slide a trim removal tool (screwdriver) under front end and pull up a bit along whole front
    [​IMG]
    and slide it up and pull a bit to the front
    [​IMG]
    now u need undo 4 screws (red marking) holding the pascel shelf with sub.u will see them.{upsidedown pic. (my sub is gone)}
    [​IMG]
    5. now you have 4 trim holders under front of the parcel shelf.slide your fingers under the parcel shelf and u should find them.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    6. now place your hand on side edge of the parcel shelf and push down you should see a bit of these
    [​IMG]
    they slides into holes in parcel shelf side edges
    [​IMG]
    when it comes loose you can start pulling the parcel shelf forward (carefully)
    just dont forget disconecct the brake light :)
    the parcel shelf hold it self under the window (back end) with 4 flexible thingy witch slides into 4 holes
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    let me know how that goes and how it sounds as that may save me some work in the future. I made a custom fiberglass enclosure that's fits snugly into the left hand side cubby hole bit to put oil bottles etc. It sounds ok but just wanted to take my audi sub out to let it get into the cabin more as it sounds a lot better when the seats are folded down. i am also toying with the idea of placing another one on the other side.

    the one i did is like this

    Subs and that malarky aren't my thing really, the stereo in my car is plenty sufficient for my needs, but I like the headunit you have mounted, looks very professional, OEM even. Top Job :hi:

    enclosure for the 12" will take half of the boot so no I did not tryed that.
    even the 10" is turned upsidedown (magnet is outside the box) to keep the enclosure flat as posible (inside is only 8cm high)
    All this was made from staf I found in my garage only the carpet was ordered after it was all done.I bought the 10" Blaupunkt while ago with case made by blaupunkt (I tryed it in the boot but it was rubish-thats why I build custom case for it)

    This is the original case with 10"

    :rockwoot: Now it sound's great.I'm realy happy with it!
