Just finished a 15 hr drive back from Grand Ole Gameroom Expo in Nashville with LOTR in the back of the Q7. Found that backbox had to be disconnected to fit inside the height of the loading window. Luckily could just remove the bolts inside the backbox and not have to disconnect any of the maze of wires. Mirror blades prevented removal on the other end of the brackets. Where there's a will, there's a way. Many thanks to a couple fellow pinheads for the help!!
