    The on off button which doubles up as the volume control does not always work properly on my 98 A4. More often than not a tweak of the volume knob to turn the volume down a level results in the speakers pumping out noise at full volume!

    Is this a common problem? Is it easily fixed or do i need to rip it out and get a new one?

    There is a fix, but unless your handy with soldering surfance mount components, it'll be a new one i'm afraid.

    The problem you're experiencing is very common, and a fate destined for all early concert owners.

    The only known fix is a new HU from Ebay.

    There is a company called OE electronics that can fix this problem. I had mine done but it cost 68 quid plus the VAT...
    (01249) 817370
    Hope that helps.
    Cheers.
