Default Removing the coin tray?

I tried some careful prying around the edges, but it doesn't seem inclined to pop out. Before I break it, does anyone know where or how exactly the coin tray presumably snaps into the center console, and where to pry to pop it out?

I plan to install something a little more useful there but want to see my options while it is out.

dont pry it open. There is the switch near the cig lighter. If you look closely there should be a rectangular ****. push it to the right the coin tray will come up.

I think that Redd asked for this. This is a coin tray

Redd,
There is no explanation of how you can remove. If you accidentally break it, it's not expensive $ 10

Thanks, Spijun.

Yes, you are right (as usual). I stowed the ash tray liner in the rear a long time ago. I found that without the liner, I can keep a mini-light and some SD cards in the ashtray without any problem. Or a gas card, etc. But with the liner? It is just too small to be useful for anything.

The coin tra is more like what we call a "zero panel" in the US. That's a filler panel or cover which exists only to fill a hole in the dashboard (it has "zero" purpose) often used when left hand drive and right hand drive parts are swapped around, or parts for options are not installed. Zero panels usually are just snapped in and can only be removed by releasing the snaps from behind. In this case it would mean removing the center console cover, or perhaps the gearshift trim can be removed to access it.

But for ten dollars...it may be worth breaking out. (Wow, an Audi part for less than $25?!) Of course, domestic shipping will add another eight or ten bucks to that.

Redd,
Here's how to remove a portion of the center console where the coin holder

Price in Germany is EUR 2.9

So, if I use the special service tool 3409 or a suitable screwdriver (carefully) I can pry out the gearshift boot leather, and perhaps insert a digit under the coin tray to release it.

But failing that it appears that I must see if two of "Bolt #3" (of course only one appears in the diagram) are present under the ash tray cover, to get full access.

Perhaps this weekend, I'll try removing the leather from the gear shift to see if that can be done. In the spirit of guerilla warfare and unauthorized access, I'll even try using a hard plastic prying tool instead of Special Service Tool 3409. (Just call me an outlaw.)

So this is what that panel is! Somehow I assumed it was part of the climate system, perhaps due to its vent-like appearance... I'd love to see what, if any other use you can think of for it.

" I assumed it was part of the climate system,"

Someone didn't read his manual.

You realize, if you don't score above 98% on the exam, they come take your car back?

LOL!!! I'm embarrassed...I didn't know it was a coin holder either!
I actually thought the coin tray was the small area just in front of the arm rest.


Update: It only holds six quarters and they rattle.
