Has anyone removed the windshield cowl on A4 B7 ? I have removed the wiper arms and clips, but never having done this before I am unsure of how much force, and which direction to apply it, to get the cowl free from the bottom edge of the windshield.

Thanks in advance

Should be a type of tongue in groove, start at one end and work it free, once started, it just peels right out. Do you not have the factory repair manual for the vehicle you are working with?

Warning... before you go to fit it back into place, used compressed air to clean out the groove and wipe down the tongue. This helps to prevent the windshield from cracking when popping it back into place.

Since VCDS will be of absolutely no help removing a windshield cowl, I'm moving this to General VW/Audi Repair. :)
