the first thing is to determine exactly where the oil is coming from. If it is a sump gasket at the rear main area it will be easier to do that than pulling the transmission and flywheel to do it (if it is not the main seal) Next is it gear oil - reddish or if manual smells different to engine oil. IT auto and is reddish it may be an oil cooler line or a front seal in the torque converter. I am saying that if it is a rear main seal it will be a big job so make sure before you get involved.
I have a similar problem on Audi A6 2.5 tdi year 2000, is just that my subwoofer is working fine, but the rear speakers have no sound and the rear satellites on the same ciruits are working just fine, I cannot explain this! I have taken apart the rear speaker and teasted with an ipod and one is working fine but the other is dead! I don t know if there is any connection, or there is a filter for the rear speakers and if one speaker is dead there will be no sound on the other speaker! but as i said on the same cables satelites are working well!
try connecting them to a small radio or tape player to see if they still work ?? if they appear to work ok on a small set then i would be inclined to check the colours on the speaker wires then rmove the radio and try connecting another known to be good speaker to the output on the radio and if that works ok then renew the feed wires to rear speakers because thats where your fault would lie for whatever reason like a mouse got in or seat crushed the wires or whatever
The large block is a factory amplifier - in your car (as was in mine) you had a partially-amplified system. The front speakers were driven at speaker level from the head unit, but the rears were fed a line-level signal from the head unit to the amp, which then boosted to speaker level. The harness then sent the speaker level signal to each rear speaker.
What you can do is fit your new head unit. The fronts will interface perfectly with no issues. For the rear, run new wires from the adapter harness at the back of your head unit, back to the new rear speakers, and connect them directly. Then everything will work as it should.
You don't want to fit that - it's the factory amplifier for the rear speakers (the rears are amped, the fronts are not). You need to run new wires from the head unit back to the new rear speakers so that the speaker-level outputs from the new head unit are used to drive the new speakers.
You can't use any of those - the large connector at the OEM speakers is because the rears are amplified. Your factory head unit puts out a line level signal to the rear speakers. There's an amplifier on the driver's side rear speaker (the box around the magnet that you can see from inside the trunk).
You need to either replace the head unit with an aftermarket one to drive your new speakers, or you need to tap into the amp connector and find the line level wires, break them out, put RCA plugs onto them, and plug them into an aftermarket amp, which you'd use to power your rear speakers. Doing it that way allows you to keep the factory head unit.
