Question about 2001 Audi A4

2 Answers

My passenger's side front door Bose speaker went out and I'm going to replace it myself. I have the speaker that I'm going to use to replace it with but I've been hearing a few people say that you need a torque wrench. The guy that I bought the speakers from didn't use a torque wrench and the speakers and connectors look like they're knew. Do I really need a torque wrench to replace the Bose speakers in a 2001 audi a4?

I think you will find that they were saying "torx" as in a torx screw driver, which has a star (six pointed) shape at the end. The screws holding the speaker housing to the door have a torx head. It is possible to get torx sets quite cheaply these days, you only need the interchangeable bits really (Torx #27 is the one that fits this).

Nope - this site isn't a sales site, it's just a tech advice site on how to fix problems. Your best bet for buying a speaker would be eBay, a salvage yard like www.shokan.com, or the classifieds sections on www.audiforums.com or www.audizine.com.

SOURCE: Audi 2001 Speaker

So, I dealt with this problem on my own. It would have cost me over $350 to change a stinking bose speaker in my A4, instead, it cost my $62.50 and a saturday afternoon.

Here were my symptoms:
On really cold mornings or days, my passenger side front door speaker would crackle, not exactly blown per se, but it was really annoying, making me adjust my balance 100% to the right side. But, when it warmed up a little later in the day, the crackling would go away. I'm guessing this had something to do with expansion and contraction due to heat, or lack thereof.

Here's what I did:
I called around and found out that you can buy replacement speakers from the audi parts shop at your local dealer... they said it would cost $178.00 for one speaker! I understand it's Bose, but come on, it went defective on me. So, just like you said, I checked ebay. I was able to get, not one, but two used replacement speakers for 60.00. But I was concerned about dismantling my door panel. I've been in a lot of cars where the interiors rattles because of custom or even professional installation jobs. I didn't want to lose my wonderfully noise free interior in my car. I figured I need some directions: I checked the internet and found this site: carstereoremoval.com. What do you know? They give you simple step by step instruction on how to remove a door panel on a 2001 A4. It cost me $2.50 through paypal. So total, (besides the torque wrench), 60.00 + 2.50 = 62.50 vs. 350.00. That's a lot of beer money! Hope this helps someone else out.

Be forewarned: To replace the bose speaker you need a T20 torque wrench. I didn't have this and was caught having o drive to home depot without a door panel.

SOURCE: The battery in my A4 died, now my radio doesn't work

THERE ARE ARE NORMALLY TWO PROBLEMS THAT OCCUR WHEN THE BATTERY GOES FAULTY ON THESE AUDI CARS.THE FIRST BEING THAT THE DISPLAY OF THE RADIO WILL JUST TURN RED BUT WITH COMING ON.THE FUSE AT THE BACK OF THE RADIO WILL BE THE ONE DEMAGED BUT YOU WILL NEED THE RADIO CARS TO TAKE OUT THE RADIO FOR THE REPLACEMENT OF THIS FUSE.
THE SECOND ONE IS WHEN THE RADIO WILL REQUIRE THE ANTI-THEFT CODE THAT NORMALLY COMES WITH THE BOOKLET,BUT FOR ANY REASON YOU CAN NOT GET THIS CODE JUST GO TO YOUR NEAREST DEALER THEY WILL GIVE YOU THE CODE WITHIN MINUTES.

The most common problem would be the speakers as opposed to the actual output channels of the stereo. You can test this by taking a known good speaker and trying it at the "bad" locations

Testimonial: "Thanks, Accually i used a test light and determined that there is power to the speaker, So i'm sure the speakers are bad.Thanks again.."

What would cause the driver side front door speaker and the passenger side rear deck speakers not to work. When if fade the sound all the way to the front with no sound in rear and with the balance turned...


Check the speakers if they work. Connect the speaker terminals using a short wire to a 1.5 volt battery (AA or any dry cell batter) and listen if there's a thumping sound when the wires are connected to the battery terminals. If there's no sound, your speakers are busted. If there's a sound, check if the wires are okay. Use the same method with the battery with the wires from the back of your stereo. Make a small cut on the wire and attach the short wires you used earlier.

How do i remove the passenger side front door panel on my 2000 va


All you have to do is unscrew everything on the outside of the panel, unscrew the lock thingy and lift up and away. I'm doing just that later myself. The motor still runs, but the window won't go down.
