A4 convertible glove box door broken. Someone said this has been a big problem. Does anyone know if Audi will replace it due to poor design? My cars out of warranty.
Thanks
John

Doubtful... but what's broken on it? The lower right side hinge?

Probably NOT I had the same problem ( a new one goes for around $300 and you still need to pay for labor) and i fixed it using Plastic epoxy cement I bought at Ace hardware an Aluminum bracket I made from a strip of 3/4" wide 1/8" thick material and 3 screws. The hardest part was taking the door off - you have to remove the dashboard front - not really hard, but tricky - you have to. E carefully to find all the screws and clips.
Send me your email and I'll send you a photo.
Additionally I searched the Forum before I did the repair and found a bunch of ideas and photos on the repair.

yes, it's the lower hinge. The back of the door is cracked.
Sorry, but I'm not able to do the repair myself. I was wondering about getting a used door at a junk yard - does the sedan door fit the convertible?

The sedan door will probably fit.
The issue is not repairing the door - the issue is taking the dash apart to get the hinged door back in, that's where all the work occurred
