Hi guys,

I have viewed quite a lot of videos showing how to remove the glove box, the main one that I followed is:

I remove 1 x bolt by the fuses, 2 x bolts underneath and 3 bolts at top inside the glove box just like on the video.
Unfortunately my glove box is still not coming out, the left side is sagging while the right side doesn't seem to be moving much.
Left side is passenger door (UK car to avoid confusion).

I do have an AMI unit in there but do not have keys. Is there bolt behind that or am I missing something?

Thanks for any help.

Thanks for the info, I have ordered some radio keys and hopefully will be able to remove the glovebox :)

It's a while since I did this job but I'm sure I didn't need to do anything about the AMI. Isn't there a plastic panel on the transmission tunnel just below the glovebox that has to be unclipped?

The Body - Interior repair manual tells us that, depending on country & equipment, we may find as many as two bolts attaching the inboard side of the glove compartment. Sounds like at least one bolt will be found back there once you have the AMI unit out. --g

Good news, I managed to remove the glove box, there was a bolt behind the AMI unit near the top (nearly missed it as it's quite hard to see it). Once that was out, I was able to remove the whole glovebox.
Which repair manual are you referring to? And where can I find this?

I recently changed from BMW to AUDI therefore don't know about all of these hidden manuals yet :D

@aaad2 : This can get you started: sm-audi-8k2.rar
Extract the RAR to an empty folder and go.
Generally, VAG makes repair & service manuals available through the erWin service: erWin – Homepage not logged on
Though, in the US, we go through: erWin Online | Audi of America | erWin Online
For us, the cost is US$35 for 24 hours access, during which one can download as much information for as many Audi platforms as one cares to (good to do it on a rainy weekend!). The service will also give you access to the full PR codes for Audi VINs (generally more than are found on the vehicle information sticker). Cheers --g
