Default Interior Trim

In the D3 area Tech Dump there is a PDF of "How to" the interior trim.
Does anyone have access to something similar for the D4?

Just two little things.
  • Previous owner has a mini usb lead at the right end of the dash. It's connected to the right hnnd fuse box but I do not want to just pull it out.
  • I have a phone holder/charger that is currently plugged in to the cigar lighter(?) in the cup holde r. I want to hard wire it to the rear of the cigar lighter.
Just tidying up.

Thanks Neil . . . . But. . . .
That is where I have looked five times now and I cannot see anything about internal trim.

Problem solved.
I had ELSA Win installed on my PC. Cost £30. Was supposed to take 4 hours to install, mine took 2 hours.
  1. Took off the fuse box cover (dash end cap driver's side)
  2. Two bolts alongside fuse holders removed
  3. Two bolts under the knee bolster removed.
  4. Pulled the knee bolster out at the top and it dropped down.
  5. PO had connected to ign +ve at the OBD plug and a chassis earth. So I used what he had done but plugged my phone lead into his.
  6. Cut his mini usb cable off above the dash and pulled it all out from the fuse box.
  7. Tested and working so reassembled.
Only took 20 minutes and some of that was down to chatty neighbours.


Then I had a brainwave, OK yes it did hurt. I'm sure I used to have ELSA Win on an old PC that I threw away so had a rummage. Found the CDs and the paperwork. Another £30 wasted. Never mind My lad can put that one on his PC.
