To pull off this unit, you’ll need VW radio removal tools.

You will hear a “click” noise, then you can pull off whole unit. After that disconnect all cables from unit.

Now we need to make few changes to have a sound coming from CarPlay to MMI (the hardest part – we recommend to do this via advanced installers).

NOTE!! THIS IS ONLY FOR AUDI Q3 OWNERS!! IN A6 / A1 DO NOT NEED DOING THIS!!! YOU ONLY NEED TO HAVE AUX

After that, you need take off climate control panel as will need put cable spliter there.

The best way to remove it, is using trim removal tools on each side:
