    I just noticed this morning that if I switch my heated rear screen on it interferes with the radio reception. Has anyone else noticed this? :sorry:

    Unfortunately it is likely that the aerial element in the rear screen that has broken. I had this on a previous car and the only fix is to replace the rear screen !

    Sorry !!

    Yep, I had this problem. It's either an amplifier in the tailgate or, as was the case with mine, needs a new rear screen. Luckily mine was done under warranty!

    It took two goes to get Audi to find the problem, but they have, and it's having a new rear screen tomorrow. Didn't come under the extended warranty but since I originally enquired about it not long after buying the car from them they are sorting it for free anyway. Result.
