    aerial on my a4 avant?

    Hi, a few weeks ago whilst driving my radio stopped working, it is as if it needs tuned it, i can hear the radio but it is very crackly, can someone tell me where my aerial is and if this can be fixed? also my cd player plays 1 cd out of every 100, not sure if this is related but its endless all the same, any help would be much appreciated, thanks, Neil Conlay

    I think the ariel is those orange things in the back 2 windows that look like heater matrix. Also there is a sub/amp behind the right hand panel when you open the boot

    Bez101 is correct, if you remove the passenger side boot trim there is an ariel amp located under the trim panel, this is more than likely the problem....

    I'd be interested in your results as I'm having similar issues with mine, keep us posted! (In fact the 2 Audis I've had have always had crap reception and speaker issues!)

    As stated before, it is on the passenger side, you need to remove the entire passenger side boot trim (major job - almost the entire boot and parts of the rear seats need to come out)....

    Once that is removed you will see a box just behind the top of the inner wheel arch with wires going into the rear side window, this is the ariel booster.... remove and replace.....

    Hope this helps....
