Hey All,

The main MMI control knob on my 09 A5 is starting to 'bubble' it looks like. I almost feel like this might just be a clear film, but I am too afraid to try and pick at it. Do you know if this can be peeled off, or is it otherwise a simple task to replace this knob?

I had the same problem. Around a tenner for a replacement from your dealer. Just pull off the old one (very stiff) and replace. 2 minute job.

Mine did this also.

I actually peeled all the old covering off carefully and it actually has a nice shiny finish underneath (hence why it doesnt adhere very well and bubbles off) Looks absolutely fine now which was a nice surprise:thumbsup:

Yep. For want of a better expression it does just pull off with a firm tug...

it makes me wonder why they put a sticker over the top of it if it looks exactly the same underneath?!

It's less shiny underneath.

This button on my 2010 S5 is falling on and off. I am not sure if it is broken or twist off. Do I have to replace the whole thing or just the lil plastic button?


Help!

Lol mines been like that for 2 years, if i knew it was that cheap to replace and just simply pull off I would have done it ages ago.
It doesn't bother me now

Sorry, to be specific, do you just pull the knob straight up with some force and it comes right off? Do you just press a new one on? Does anyone have a weblink to the replacement knob? TIA!
