Default Remove/Replace Cargo Cover Handle

2012 A8 Trunk board handle pin has come out on one side after bumper replacement. How do I remove and repair or replace handle? ( it holds the trunk board up when removing the spare tire)

Default Any results?

My handle broke so I bought a new one but cannot figure out how to remove the original handle. It's really on there... Any chance someone has figured this out in the past year?

I did manage to figure it out last year...

This is my reply to my post on another forum.
when I ordered the part the back frame was not part of the order so I had to remove it without breaking the back frame.
i used snips to remove the edges from the top and pushed it through. Then I used a screwdriver to carefully separate unclip the back frame from the broken part.
It took a while lol
Then the new part snapped together

Ok thank you I'll give that a try! Weird that you have to destroy the original part to get it out...

I was able to fix mine! Just used a screwdriver to pry the inside part out without even cutting the assembly out first. It was very difficult because you need a thin but sturdy screwdriver and the part is clipped all the way around. Jam the screwdriver in as far as it'll go otherwise you'll just chip the back retainer which I did. Once I got one side mostly out I hit it with the back end of the screwdriver and was able to pop it out.

I couldnít get mine to unclip so thatís why I cut the edges off!
