Audi vents have small holes drilled into each frame, and the plan is to use an "L" shaped tool to pull them out - the holes, if VW also provide this method of extraction are located quite far back into the housings.

You have to remove the radio, and remove the plastic bravket that goes over the whole thing because the vent is behind it.

Yes.
Well i had removed mine center vents to replace dummy buttons. It was quite work.
Removing trim, screw and radio is not difficult.
I don't recollect but cage is quite hard to move.
