S3 sportback pan roof wind deflector....

Has anyone ever replaced theirs? Just noticed a little tear in the fabric on mine! :blush:

Can't seem to find the right part!? Am I being a thicky? :shrug:

I found this but I think it’s just the frame and not the frantic part. Expensive as well

I've spoken to my local Audi stealership and they told me they would have to order it in. A few pence shy of £149.00 :huh::hopelessness: Nor would they give me the part number. Company policy he said!!

It's got to be the same part for the 3 door, Sportback and Saloon surely!? And RS3 by the looks of it.

Have a look at this....Purely for part numbers and reference. I've also messaged creweaudiparts on here.....

Dab a blob of clear nail varnish either end to stop it getting bigger! or stitch it together with some fishing line.

Out of interest is the full part easy to get off, or do you have to take the entire thing apart?

That's not a bad idea.....I was thinking I could maybe repair it with some black wonder web or some clear textile glue :blush: Or even patching it with a piece from some black tights.....

Not sure.....I've watched a video of one being removed on a Merc and it just seems to unclip....However I haven't been able to find a Audi version....

A repair may work and if it doesn't!!! You have nothing to lose.

In work we have an extremely sticky fabric tape which looks just like the mesh on your roof, unfortunately it's bright green lol....they must do it in black though! Maybe look for something like black fiberglass mesh tape...Gorilla Tape etc. I wouldn't jump into £149 just for that small rip.

Or if you can get the part off and strip all the mesh off, replace it with something like this: https://www.sure-green.com/soffit-v...fE7U94jGSKofdGR5671JzB280aAshzEALw_wcB#158=62

I’m hoping just the fabric part can be replaced. I had a quick look this morning, it looks like it comes away from the frame quite easily.

Parts request, link at the top of the page...
 
Done a quick repair. Looks a crap but this will stop it ripping any further.

I know it's £150 plus fitting but I am a bit OCD about these things..... I can't leave it ripped or patched.... It'll drive me nuts.... :blink:

Just wondering if a car seat repair company could do it for you! It's all fabric after all.
