    Hi all,

    Iv had this fault since i baught the car but havnt really dont much about it.

    Its like my left channel is intermittant and seems to be effected when i turn my steering wheel (perticularly at slow speeds), the speaker will basically cut out, and although can come back on its own accord a simple turn up of the knob then back down will sort it out.

    Like i say, its far from serious, but the fact that just turning the volume up then down fixes it doesnt imply that its a loose wire or anything... but then the fact that its effected by the steering wheel confuses me a little...

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Is it the whole left side? Or just one of the door speakers cutting out?

    Have you pulled back the rubber sleeve on the door wiring loom to see if any wires look broken?

    It's a common fault, there's a connector behind the door pillar and the contacts get dirty, which is why increasing the volume cures it overcoming the electrical resistance. The problem is it's really difficult to get to as it's inside the inner skin underneath the glovebox by the door pillar and the hole is too small to get your hand in there. Probably just wiggling it in/out would be enough to clean the faulty connection, but I gave up with mine. Problem resolved itself after amping the front speakers, as much more power was then going to them even at low volume.
