Default 1990 90 - how get driver's footwell cover down?

On my 90, when you lay in the footwell and want to look up to find a relay, you are presented with a complete black plastic cover that covers the entire area from the firewall to the dash. Can't see a thing as it is a complete solid featureless cover. It is really solidly mounted and there are no fasteners in evidence. The bentley is no help so far - must be something only on the 90s or perhaps only certain countries. Any tips or help? Trying to find the 281 relay up there.

Thanks,
Doug

Hey Doug..is there some "plugs" to conceal the upper holding bolts? Not much help on a B3...but there has to be an answer.

Not that I could see. I suspect it is a series of plastic clips. With garage temps hovering in the low 30s and a 28 year old vehicle, I don't want to pull and snap a cold piece of plastic. Unless I can get some guidance here, I will crawl back in there with a mirror and try to figure it out.

Doug..yep..too cold to go under the dash and experiment. Sorry I do not know the B3 cars..the B4 is easy..my guess is it must be about the same. There was a optional pop in Audi "shelf" for maps, gloves and the like on the driver's side kick panel..do you have one of those? That may explain the no visual fasteners.

Makes working on a Vanagon look easy?

Heh - yes Vanagon is easy peezy by comparison. Lots of space, and its an industrial chassis with less weight restrictions, so they use large metal fasteners and have room to swing a wrench around them, etc. No shelf on mine but those sound cool to have. I'll take it for a spin and warm up the interior, then try again with confidence pulling won't lead to breaking....
