I have a 1999 A4 manual and need to get behind the number plate [the intense
heat has melted the fixative that held it in place. and needs a pair of
self-tappers] anyway, I cannot seem to find out what is holding the furry
trunk/boot liner in place.
I've removed the screws but the handle recesses refuse to release allowing
the liner to come away..
Any help would be greatfully received.
For a normal model (no avant):
Removing holder for warning triangle.
Remove bolt -1- (2x).
Unscrew bolts -2- (12x) (flock-coated in same colour as lining) and detach
The bolt -1- is in/behind the handgrip located on the right side of the
Hope this helps.
Thanks v much for your help.
I was able to remove it easily once I realised the warning sign holder
On other matters I noticed that when I throttled down off the motorway I had
lost a lot of power.
Almost as though the car wasn't running on all its cylinders, I could even
floor it and only get a little acceleration.
However, after stopping and driving later than evening the power returned.
It seems connected to longish drives at high power causes the problem.
What kind of engine does your car have?
Sounds like the engine went into a safe running mode. If this happens (due
to some engine problem) the ECU limits the power of the engine. The best
(easiest) is to let the car checked at some dealer.
