How can I get the interior door trim off a '99 A6 without breaking it?
I need to fix the window mechanism and I'm not paying £250 to a garage
I can only find two screws at the top and a hole in the door handle.
Because my history of breaking plastic on cars (100%) I am reluctant
to repeat this by pulling hard on the panel.
BTW: I have no service manual as I can't find one in the UK. Haynes
don't do one.
Haynes is the source of the ol' "installation is reverse of removal" joke -
in that, installation seldom is. If you're looking for a service manual,
get the Bentley Manual and avoid the heartache that the Haynes will give
you. www.rb.com (it may be www.rb.co.uk for their site in the uk).
IME, Audi are pros when it comes to hidden trim fasteners, and fasteners
that you have to pull on to the point that you would swear things are
breaking before they release. You might have some luck checking around

Thanks for the response. I've been through this before however. The
Bentley Manuals are £100 for a CD-ROM, a bit steep considering they
only cater for the USA models with the larger engines and not the 2.4
V6. AFAIK they don't have a UK counterpart.
I'll try Audiworld -- I haven't tried this yet!
Check this link, too...
I found it extremely useful when removing my front door speakers not long
ago. This company did an outstanding job of repairing the on-board speaker
amplifiers on my '92 100CS. They were reasonably priced and turn-around
time was one (1) week (including transit time within the US).
