Default Question on interior materials

With my new used car, there are a couple of interior cosmetic issues that trouble me.

The front top panel above the glove box under the windshield has a small mark like an outline of a box - maybe the previous owner stored something there. Is this vinyl or some other material? If vinyl I should be able to use vegetable oil or vinylex.

The auto shift **** has some marks/scratches on top. Minor I know but it bothers me. I'm thinking of ordering one and replacing it myself. Anyone have suggestions where/how.

My dog already put a gouge in the Milano leather of the center armrest with his claws. May wait on that one, but again, can't seem to find the part.

Any info appreciated!

Replacing is so simple, 3 minute job



Center armrest front or rear, and MY2009-???

Is this what you're seeing on your dash?

Yes!! I was wondering if it was airbag related. I guess there isn't a solution. My car is still under warranty though.

You did not found it because that part does not change often. The first time I hear that someone seeking to replace it

Having had a L A R G E dog, I would say that if the dog left a claw print in the first armrest, he's likely to do it in the next armrest. You might be better off finding a good piece of heavier stronger leather and velcro'ing it on top of the armrest, replacing as needed. There are all sorts of sources for good leather online these days, all sorts of colors and grades so it can look professionally done.

In case someone else does this:

The metal clip is a throwaway after you take it out. In my case it was much harder to get out than this video shows. It was on REALLY tight and you have to really pry it open with a flat head screw driver and it takes some time and some amount of force. I put a cloth around the area because it's easy to have the screw driver fly off in the direction of force and gouge the mmi control area.

I was planning on using a zip tie, but then the new shifter I got had a rotating clip that tightens in place of the metal one so I didn't have to. This is OEM S shifter **** available on ebay. It looks very nice in the Q5.

Small digression:
That blue plastic prybar? Anyone have a good source for something like that in the US? Strong enough to pry, soft enough not to scratch?

I'm planning to lose the "coin holder" and replace it with something more useful, maybe a custom power socket. Or is there anything else that's already pre-formed to fit in the same hole?

Outstanding, thank you!

But of course, they aren't designed to work with the Q5. (WEG)

Considering the tight fit of all the trim, wow, tools for less than ten bucks a piece ?! Nice find!
