Question about 1990 Audi Quattro
How to take the panel off
This is great as I am doing one of these right this moment and this one has gone long since unanswered and there appears to be no solution.
For the front panel.
1. Remove the two Phillips screws front and rear at the top of the panel.
2. Remove 3 - 4mm Hex head screws in the arm rest, these are expansion fasteners so you will not be able to completely remove the screw. When you have these loose enough the arm rest will slip straight out.
3. Pull interior door handle until you can see the Phillips screw hidden near the hinge and remove.
4. Pull out door handle and carefully release cable from the handle assembly. Be careful with this clip as it can easily be bent and damaged.
5. Start at bottom of door panel and pull the panel straight out, once the bottom is free lift upward until panel comes off.

SOURCE: DOOR PANEL REMOVAL
You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

This info is wrong, remove the screws at the top of the panel along the edge ( one on the hinge edge and one on the latch edge. Remove the cover from the interior door handle by locating the hole on the bottom edge of the handle, insert a punch to release the cover, once the cover is released remove the 2 screws holding the handle on. Remove the handle.Once the handle is removed take the black trim piece that the handle seats into off. Pull the interior latch handle forward enough the remove the cable. Remove the latch handle. There is a small hole in the vynal under the latch handle, the last remaining screw that holds the panel on is inside this hole, remove it. The hole is hard to see, this took me several hours to find not knowing it was there. Remove the window switch module by sliding a screwdriver under the edge that faces the latch end of the door, push in the metal clip and pry up on the switch assembly. there are 2 plastic tabs that hook into the arm rest on the hinge end, that is why you must pry up from the latch end. Disconnect the plugs from the switch. Now you are ready to remove the panel. grasp the panel through the hole for the latch handle and pull up about 1" the panel should com free from the door. Do not pry the panel out from the door or you will break the plastic tabs that hold the panel on. Once you lift the panel up and off the door you will need to disconnect 2 electrical connectors and remove the white foam plug that seals the window switch harness into the arm rest and remove the window control wires from the panel.
