With today’s cell phones the cell phone jack in the B6 A4/S4 is useless. Besides I had a GPS and a cell phone and wanted more ports to charge my equipment when I was on the road. I converted the telephone jack into a cigarette lighter outlet using a cheap socket from a B3/B4 Volkswagen Passat.
Second, unhook the plug from the bracket and tuck the plug under the center console base away from any obstructions.
Third, with a sharp knife gently cut the hole opening big enough to accommodate the socket.
Cut the additional ribbing material underneath the cover to make room for the socket.
Tuck wires out of danger and place handbrake cover in place.
Put cover back in place and you’re done.
