Open the flap, Take a small plain screwdriver and push on the two clips at the top of the cubby hole and pull it should come out then see if there is anything misplaced, failing that superglue the thing /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

Just tried to get this piano trim flap out and failed miserably. It looks like the whole velvet lined box and flap comes out in one. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Anybody any ideas of how to tackle this one without distroying it cause my hangover is kicking in and my patience are wearing thin /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/froggie_red.gif

OK troops!! Ive since had time to have a closer look and its Knackered /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/froggie_red.gif

There is a little arm about 20mm long that is detachable and is obviously worn and when open doesnt hold the flap open properly /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif.

Will I have to buy a new complete box? and where can I get a good deal /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

It's Elsawin Adam, the electronic workshop manual used in VAG dealerships. Regretfully I've gave a copy to a couple of users and they can't get it working and I can't get it to work on my laptop so there's no point until I remember how I got the thing to work on my pc

Did you find out about a replacement? Mine is doing the same...

I managed to take the whole thing out as illustrated earlier in this thread and wedge a thin piece of card inbetween the arm on the mechanism side.

By doing this it pushes a small pin further into the worn plastic grooves,

This has done the trick and now holds the flap firmly closed, and when pressed, opened perfectly.

No need to purchase a new one now /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif <font color="blue"> </font>
