[A4] Removing Center Trim...

Hey Derick,

Mine just pulls straight out. It's just held on through friction. However I 
think the clips that were meant to hold it one were broken prior to me 
getting the car.

If you can't find exact instructions for that year car, try leaving it off 
very gently with a thin piece of metal. Pry just enough to bend the trim, 
without permanently bending it. (a few mm) Where it resists moving, is 
probably where it is held on, either by clip or glue. Glue will of course be 
over a larger area than a clip, and can usually be separated with a long thin 
knife. Clips require a bit more imagination.

If your still completely lost, what about removing the trim from the foot 
wells so you can see behind?
