Right there is a repair, I have ordered it from Audi for just over nine quid, so does anyone know how to remove the back of the seat on the top part, is there a tool you use to get them out.
Thanks for any help.

The top of the seat is held in with 3 clips metal ones, they wont break but they are glued to the backing your removing, which is made of cardboard so be careful.The easiest way to remove this part is by prying out the two side as high as your able and then use a screw driver in the middle at the top of the seat try to be quick and pull and you should pop the cover off easily hope this helps:icon_thumright:

it just looks untidy with the back hanging off
