      Lol. I just might need to do that dude.

      And I am keeping a keen watch on what the new A3 will look like. If I like, I buy. If not, I'll by the last 8p quattro and turn it into an S3 like the rest of my S.F. brethren.

      oh i see what you mean, square peg in a round hole.. not good my friend..

      what position and side is that button for?

      i would buy it PM ME! ..

      is the bracket that holds the buttons in place plastic or metal? looks plastic in the photo.. if so a lil dremel and might be good to go.

      while you had it out, did you at-least check if there was a power hook up for it on the harness?

      did you check the other spaces to see if they were all the same? thats a middle space it looks like, might be different.

      The housing is plastic. It would be pretty simple to use a drimal and cut out the plastic. The problem would be to line up the switch and secure it so that it is at the same level as all the rest and make sure the gap around the switch is even. It will be a little work and probably a little frustrating. The other switch locations on the right side will require the same treatment. the front of each switch is a different shape so you need to get the correct one for each location. DONT try to pry out the switches individually from the front. The whole switch assembly unclips from the dash as you can kinda see from the pic. If you look close you can also see the pry marks I left on the blanks when I tried going in from the front

      what about the harness? is there still a extra plug in for it to at-least get it some power to it?

      Yea it would be dremel and prolly some epoxy or something to get it to stay could also cut it a lil to small then squeeze it in.. again, ill tell ya what it would be permeant.. so o well to the next owner would have a button that they have no clue about.. hah. o well.. its definitely going to need a bit of time to work on it.. i guess for the newer face lifted cars..

      i wonder could you just buy another hazard or ESP switch, then swap face covers, and tap the same wires for garage remote. then no mod would be needed. other then the face change. and its still a push button.. either the ESP or maybe another hazard?

      anyone know a pushbutton that would go there?> ESP, Hazard , anything else? gonna a have to call dealer tomorrow.. this might be a good plan for the 2009+ cars.

      the Tire set might be the perfect candidate for this..

      anyone wanna chime in if this would work?




      thank Jubal for pics..

      OK here is the updated new switch panels.. as you can see there using some kinda BUS set up.. so the switch would have to go on the other side of the hazard...

      Boy.. im out of ideas!...

      I'm reviving this old thread because Iv'e finally moved into a place where I can see myself for a while so am going to attempt this mod.

      My problem is that I have an MY10 car with the ne, 1 piece switches.

      To the right of the hazard where you have a bank of three blanks, is it possible to remove all 3 blanks and install 3 new switches?

      Has anyone done this on an updated button set-up?

      Super old post but age old problem. Has anyone added a button/switch for a garage door opener on a face lifted A3?

      In the pics, the garage door cover looks to be a different color/texture black plastic. Are the blank covers removable from the dummy switch too? I'd just as soon have a blank switch and know it's the opener.

      The site doesn't exist anymore. Just go with the cheaper mod.
