Question 2006 A3 Sunshades

Need to know part numbers for the locking/release plastic "clips" of front & rear sunshades . The dealer is not helping much with this problem.

If it's for the side windows there is a clip, or hook, towards the top to hold the shade up. Those are 8.62 each. For the shades on the roof, there are repair kits that have plastic T shaped parts that look like they go on the outer ends of the roller shades. If those break I'm sure it's going to cause a problem and we do sell a few of these kits. They are different from front to rear, they run 12.46 each and that has the 2 clips in it to repair just one sunshade. If in doubt I can send a picture to you of what is in this kit.

Smile sunshade repair kits

Jeff. I would like the pics of both front & rear repair kits for the sunroof sunshades. I understand they will lock & unlock the sunshades. I might also order them, will see. 2006 Audi A 3 premium pkg. w. panoramic sunroof.
Thanks ! Lionel ---

I'd need a vin to figure out what to get you, but here are the pictures of the sunroof and rolling shade parts:

Here is the entire roof:

Below is the color picture of 7A, which is up above. It has the latch in the center that locks and releases the shade:

Below is #12, these look to be the guides on the ends of the previous picture, that support 7A.

On your order, the 7a and 8a ordered with Romney are a match to your vin number. Looks like he's got the right parts ordered for your car.

The plastic trim with the clip just arrived ! Once I figure out how to take the old trim out, I know it will be easy to install the new ones. Any pics, video or hints ? On how to uninstall the old plastic trim . Thanks ! Lionel ---

Just finished installing the rear roller blind bow by attaching it to its shade/fabric. Aprox. 60 minutes = including uninstalling the broken one. Did not took off the head liner or the sky roof/glass. Piece of cake ! Saved $ 1.300 of labor & other parts the dealership wrote on the invoice plus five hours waiting. Thanks AudiUSAParts !
