Question B9 S5 centre armest change - help please.

I've damaged the leather quite badly on my centre armrest, so have procured a genuine Audi leather padded top replacement, but I can't really see from the new one how it is held on to the lid in the centre. I don't want to just haul on the old one, in case I break a fitting on the lid.

Has anyone changed one & got any tips for me?

TIA.

Doesn't looking underneath the new one give you any hints as to how it is attached to the armrest piece? Otherwise I'm with you and absolutely dread doing interior stuff where everything is hidden so you don't know where to or whether to pry or look for a screw or even worse, if it's glued on or not..

If you bought it from a dealership you could possibly go back and ask for a service manager or mechanic to look it up for you in ETKA (I think the service manual is called ETKA).

Looks like a cover of some kind clips using the points at the bottom, then two screws near the middle.

Cheers.

Going to get on with it after the F1 tomorrow morning, so will spend a bit more time looking out for the fixings.

Out of curiosity... why is your new replacement arm rest called David?

B9 S5 centre armest change - help please.



Actually I would think itís the two screw holes plus the arrowed clips, as this whole section in yellow box should be fixed to the tilting arm holder so that the armrest can slide on the two metal bars you can see at either side... but, Iím just guessing based on what I can see!

Pretty much; plastic "under tray" pulls off, leaving two screws to undo;

Doddle really, don't know why I was fussing ;-)
