[Audi A3/S3] Door Trim Removal


Recommended Posts

How do you remove the door trim on the A3?

I have a rattle in there since it was removed to fix the door mech under warranty and the dealer has had the trim off 4 times to try and fix it and failed! I am sure I can sort this out as coming from near the window buttons.

I can also check out the possibly damaged speaker which is vibrating strangely since they did the above also. They say there is no fault again! Strange that!?!

It depends on the year of your car as they changed the panel slightly.

If it is the same one as the pictures above then here goes.

Remove the 2 screws at the top corners

Under the pull to close handle there is a small screw that holds a cover in place behind this cover is either 1 or 2 screws

some models have a screw towards the bottom of the panel in the little cubby hole

pop the panel off its clips all round, this is best done with fingers rather than a screwdriver etc

once the panel is off you will need to release the bowden cable (shown in the bottom picture above) and the electrical connectors

Good luck :crazy
