Hi bud hopefully this will help let me know!
Hi Marcpod-I see that you're sending me all the specific details of removing the glove box. I've done that already as it is sitting in my basement. I do need to change the glove box door as the right sided hinge has cracked. I'm at the point of where I need to remove those tiny little bolts that essentially hold the glove compartment in place. The pix you've sent so far don't help me as I've accomplished all of that already. Do you have instructions for actually removing the door?
I gotcha let me send those for you
Glove Compartment Cover Removing
There are holes on the inside of the glove compartment at the left and right by the hinge.
If there is no hole, proceed as follows:

Marcpod-there is no hole to knock the pins out, and so I've tried pulling the pins inward on both sides using pliers. They are not coming out!!! The pins/bolts are starting to strip from all the pulling I'm doing with the pliers. I've tried using a cloth to cover the pins and then clamping with the pliers to pull inward, but no go. I'm concerned that I'll continue to strip the bolts and wasn't sure if there was some special type of tool. I'm no wuss, but if I pull any harder, something's gonna break or strip more. I hope you get the gist of what I'm talking about.
good idea on the cloth
hold on for me
Version 1 Removing
that is version one
here is version 2
For sure, Version one is not helping. It doesn't appear that its even correct for a 2008 A4 Avant...
That should be correct but let me look at the other a4 model versions and see if there are any other differences
Version 2 is at least on the right track as it shows the correct picture of the glove compartment brake. I've removed the joint pin and disengaged the brake for glove compartment cover. That still doesn't help me with the pins that are holding both the hinges in place and ultimately the glove box cover. I've tried pulling the pins out again with pliers and still no luck. Unless you have an illustration for that, I don't believe you will be able to help me.
They all show the same thing
can you or do you know the production date
There is actually a green sticker that shows "3 06 07".
The illustrations only show how to remove the glove box cover brake. I still need the instructions to separate the actual glove door/cover from the box. With these Audi's its pretty common that the hinges break, so you have to replace the whole darn glove box cover. I don't see how you can remove these pins that keep the door hinges in place. There is no place on the inside of the box where you can push the pin "out", because the whole thing is sealed.
No offense Marc, but I hope I can get my money back.
You can no problem at all its all about accepting the answer even the other A4's show the same thing. i will opt out for you my friend
