Default Auto Hold Button Installation

Based on a thread I saw somewhere here on AudiWorld I ordered the Auto Hold Button and wiring for my 2018 S5 Cabriolet from "4rings.us". However, so far they have been unable to provide copies of the official manual showing how to "open up" the center console so that I can install the button. Does anyone have the manual and could you provide either copies of the appropriate pages or some written instructions on how to getting into the center console?

Thanks in Advance

This doesn't really show you how to open it up, but gives you an idea...

Hmm so will there be a connector to connect to the button? I thought the US version doesn't support auto hold.

The button comes as a kit with a wiring harness that connects it with one of the controllers and the brake pedal switch. Activating it requires a couple of changes with vagcom. And then you have a functional auto hold like the rest of the world has. It holds the vehicle in place along with an active brake lkight uintil you hit the gas pedal to start off again.

But I need help with how to open up the central console. Once I get that done, the rest is easy.

Let us know how it goes because I'm very interested in this. How does it work with ACC and ***? I know ACC can hold your brakes but it doesn't activate ***. Ideally I'd Iike AH and *** at the same time.

I use the DAP system to accomplish the same thing. At a stop I hit the cruise button (setting it to the current speed limit) and the car will hold the brakes with the brake light on. Tapping the gas releases the brake and then accelerates up to the speed you have set.

I do the same thing! But I don't tap the gas to drive off I just pull the ACC stalk!
