    A heavy-handed passenger has pushed my driving mode knob through the housing in my manual Ateca. In the vain hope I might be able to fix it if I could get access behind, can anyone advise how to remove the skirt around the gear stick?

    The manual has pictures... £8 per hour you can download the full set of manuals. Basically they use VAG tool 3409 too pop the plastic fitting that holdd the usb / 12 volt etc all the way down. Clips hold top and bottom. Looks like it pops the bottom first, tilt up, then the top end lug clears. Doesn't appear to have lugs on the side.

    I gave a link to the Erwin manuals. Think that's the bit you are talking about / would like to remove perhaps. Releases the whole lot around the stick. I'd download the manuals and have a look.
