How do i remove the door panel off an A4 2001 on> ?

I am trying to replace the speakers & i cannot get the door panels off.

On my last A4 (1996) it was simple - 2 x grub screws & the 2 main bolts behind the handle & then lift up....

I'm sure this is the same idea (with the plastic L shape bits all round the door)
but i can only find 1 x screw !!

HELP !

anyone ??

I just tried to check out why my right rear window is no longer connected to the lift mechanism, but I can't get past the interior panels. How do I remove them without damaging them? This seems to be quite a common problem so somebody must know, surely?

I am having the same problem with my 2004. I need to get the front and rear door skins off. Both windows are acting up. The front sounds like it has something grinding on it when it goes up and down. the rear keeps popping off the track and has been repaired by the dealer 4 times.
Any online service manuals out there?

My local Audi dealer emailed me three pages from the manual that describe how to remove the panels and disassemble the window frame. See attachment. What I found was the plastic clip that connects the wire to the window is broken. It's a $5 part but Audi don't sell it, they insist that we purchase the entire regulator assembly for $127 to $157. I think I'm going to purchase a $21 repair kit (plus $6 shipping) from Idealautoteile in Turkey. In the meantime I'm driving around with the window firmly clamped up and the motor disconnected.

Here's the update. I ordered the repair kit from Idealautoteile in Turkey and it installed fine. The wire system is different, two separate wires rather than a single loop. This allows for buffer springs at the clip (springs included). There is also a replacement capstan in the event that the original is chewed up. Mine was fine. I don't know yet if the clip is going to hold up any better than the original (nearly 5 years) but at this stage I would recommend it. Don't expect any communication from Idealautoteile ... my enquiries went unanswered, the part just turned up 10 days later as promised.

Hi britinindy,

Thanks for the PDF link and the tip on the Turkish supplier.
Anyone find anyone in the US that has these parts?

Thanks!

Sam

Thanks for the pages from the manual. I have two windows acting up on my 2002 A4 Quattro and I am trying to get the panels off. I found the 3 screws under the wood trim, but for the life of me cannot locate any others.

Default Door panel screws

After removing the top trim and the screws underneath it, you only need to remove the one remaining screw under the door-pull. You will see a hole slanting up at quite an angle. Your medium size posidriv (or phillips) screwdriver will do the job. The hardpart is engaging the screw! With all screws removed you can carefully pop the panel out of the door. Once it's loose you have to get behind it and disconnect the door lever and electrical connections. When you have done that, swing the panel up and out, then up vertically. First time is tricky but the second door will go really quickly!
