      No ThatA4 is right, break the clip and either get new clips, or do what i did. There are two different sets of mounting holes on S4 doors, I ended up drilling 5 holes into the A4 trim piece and using a set of selftappers in place of the plastic clips.

      S4 trim is riveted, I had to break them to get the S4 trim off. So instead of riveting on the a4 piece, I used self tappers.

      Alright time for the full story. When I bought my car 2 1/2 years ago, I very quickly found out the car wasn't as clean as I thought. This rear door had some halfassed bondo, and over the years it has gotten worse. The area around the door handle was also pushed in slightly. Luckily these problems were very hard to spot in pictures, so I've skated by, but I knew that I would need to get a new door eventually. When I picked up the new fenders I also picked up the door for super cheap, and figured I would try to make the A4 trim work on and S4 door. Finally did that and now I have a fancy shmancy looking passenger side for the first time.

      As you can see, it is very hard to pick up that anything is wrong from your computer/phone screen




      Pics of said defective area:




      Removal of door:




      And the new door:




      Comparison:



      And that's my weekend making my A4 just a little cleaner

      You kidding me? I find absolutely nothing for B5s down here. I had one guy down in Sarasota parting a black 2000 but I couldn't understand him over the phone (barely spoke english) I wasn't about to drive 2 hours for nothing….haha
