Hi,

Any tips on how to change the rubber door trim on outside of cab? Complete layman advice welcome!

Kind regards,

Complete layman myself, but this might help!

The door and rear sill ones slide off, both towards the rear of the car. You have to give them a good tap with a hammer initially (these pics are of the driver's side):








The front wing ones are just pressed in with two plastic pushers:


These are the clips that sit in the channel of the rubber trim, you press in the plastic to release them off the body pins then push them up:





Clean out all the gunk from the rubber channel, wash the plastic clips and the body, apply some silicon grease to ease the rubber back on and re-apply.

HTH.

There's also 2 little clips in the door ones right at the front ends that need to be removed if they haven't fallen away too.

Yep, they do....but there right buggers to shift, and not much easier to get back....just take your time as they will shift. I'd wait for a nice dry warm day too!! And tbh even my brand new ones aren't a great fit, the contor is very tight on my cabby but they have got better over the last year. If they are blistered....that's a different thing, its why I changed all of mine.

Hi thanks for info .

What do you mean blistered ? Mine are ok but there are a couple of gaps where they meet bodywork.

Looks like I will have to remove rear wheels as well.

A hairdryer helps a lot to re-fit these.

Where did you get your new ones from?

My local dealer.....mine were just showing the smallest signs of blistering and as the rest of the car is now mint I wanted to sort them early....plus wasn't sure how much longer Audi might keep the part going...to be fair my originals were original...so 94 to 2012....not bad! Kept the old ones just in case too.
