    Anywhere to search part numbers (Bose amp)

    Hi guys

    I have a 2004 2.0 TDI with a Bose system, but since I bought it there has been a buzzing from the speakers (even with stereo switched off). I've been advised that it could be a faulty Bose amp.

    Is there anywhere I can check which part numbers will fit my A3? I phoned the chumps at Manchester Audi who informed me that a replacement was Ł371 + vat (!!) - but wouldn't tell me which part number he was going to sell me!

    I've found a second hand Bose amp for Ł100 but it's from a 5 door A3, which is apparently different to the 3dr A3 amp? (8P3035223B for 5dr, 8P3035223A for 3dr). Does anyone know if they are interchangable at all?

    Any advice would much appreciated

    vagcat.com has an on-line ETK for the VAG group but it only does up 05 plate cars.
    you also need to register to use it.

    How loud is the buzzing? Or is it better described as hissing when the volume is turned down?

    If you have hissing then they all do this, some worse than others.

    Useful site; reckons I can use 8p0035223A or 8p3035223. It has different part number for 5 door (8p4035223)
    Anyone know if the connectors are the same?

    Buzzing gets fairly loud, but only when lights are on or when using right indicator!! It definitely a fault, but as I'm not 100% sure it's the amp I'm trying to keep it cheap-ish

    If you, ahem, 'know where to look' you can download ETKA off the internet.

    Apparently.
