There are a variety of jobs on the Audi A6 that require removal of the front undertray. These trays serve to both keep components above them protected from road grime and water as well as improve the aerodynamics underneath the car. Removal is relatively simple and should take no more than 20 minutes.

The undertray is held in place under the front of the car with three dzus fasteners (green arrows).

The undertray is held in place under the front of the car with three dzus fasteners (green arrows). In all likelihood, they will be missing and held in place with cable ties as on our project car. Either undo the 10mm dzus fasteners or cut the cable ties.

Loosen and remove the two dzus fasteners (green arrows) from the rear edge of the front undertray.
