Re: Rear speaker not working?????

Two things can cause this. Blown output chips in the radio (not real likely) or corroded connections in the barrel connector(more likely). There are two barrel connectors. One is under the rear seat and the other is under the left side tupperware (opposite the gas filler). Often a disconnect and clean up with some contact cleaner followed with some diectric grease will restore the sound.

Before doing anything double check the fader control to ensure it didn't change. Step through the "note" button until you see FAD.

This has happened twice to my rear speakers. Both times it was bad amps and the whole unit had to be replaced. Good thing is, once it is replaced by BMW the warranty is two years on that part.

Re: Rear speaker not working?????

Over the past 5 years I have replaced a rear speaker and a front one. They had simply stopped working.

Replacing the rear one is a piece of cake compared to the front one.
