Recognised for its European design, the Audi TT Cabriolet is a luxurious and sporty roadster with two doors and heated leather seats. Small particles and objects such as dirt, loose change and screws can fall and collect under the seats of the Audi TT Cabriolet. You can remove the seats to get at these items. You can also remove the seats when customising the interior of the Audi and when installing aftermarket seats.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Pop the bonnet and disconnect the Audi's battery. This will disable the airbag light, preventing it from lighting up when the seats are being removed.

  2. 2

    Use a flathead screwdriver to remove the plastic caps off all four bolts found around the Audi's seat. Then, remove all four bolts with an Allen wrench, connected to an L-shaped tire iron, in a counterclockwise motion.

  3. 3

    Unclip the seat heaters and the airbag sensors that are found under the Audi's seat. If the seat heaters and airbag sensors are hard to see, use a flashlight.

  4. 4

    Pull up and remove the seat away from the Audi.

  5. 5

    Place the new seat onto the location which the stock seat was removed, and place and clip on the seat heaters and airbag sensors from underneath the seat.

  6. 6

    Use an Allen wrench to attach the four bolts that were removed to the new seat, connected to an L-shaped tire iron, in a counterclockwise motion, and place the plastic caps onto the bolts.

  7. 7

    Reconnect the battery and close the bonnet.
