    Folks,

    got a farting/crunching/squelching noise coming from my rear passenger side speaker & it's annoying the life of me...

    Anyone ideas of how this can be remedied? Anyone had similar? Can I simply buy another speaker & swap it? How difficult will it be to replace?

    Cheers

    Swap with other side to be sure its the speaker 1st, then if moves to other side, get a replacement speaker.

    How difficult a job is it to get to the speaker? Do you know of any guides/videos which may help, im a complete novice at this kind of stuff

    And do you know of the best place to buy a replacement?

    cheers

    Door card of via some torx headed bolts at bottom of the door & behind the window switch trim, then pop of the plastic clips, unbolt speaker & unplug the connector, swap across & test.

    Buy new from audi.

    If it seems a bit daunting, then I can do this all, location dependent.
