A3 Trim Removal Guide
- Flathead screwdriver or interior trim tools
- Torx screw driver set
Time required: 30 minutes
To remove the shifter piece, start by pulling up on the shift boot. This will pop up the chrome ring.
Pull up the ring and the boot.
Work your fingers under the shifter trim at the base of the piece and carefully pull up. Work your way around the shifter until all the tabs are out.
Twist the shifter trim and work it around the shift knob until it is free.
The ashtray is held in with two torx screws. Remove the screws, lift up your shifter and the tray will slide forward, up, and out.
That is all there is to it. Now you’re ready to swap in your new trim.
