This is a big pain in the a job.  I hope your hands are the size of a small
child's.  I've heard of people taking the outer shell off the door, but
haven't done this myself.  Audi probably intended you to do this, as it is a
big pain if you don't (BTDT with door skin attached).  Alot a few hours for
this.  BTW, I be very careful that the indexed alarm wheel is in the proper
place.  If not, you will disarm the alarm when you lock the door and arm it
when you unlock the door.  We have this problem.  Replacing the lock was
such a pain that I just disconnected the alarm wire on that door!

Good luck!
