Audi A4 A5 S5 Bang and Olufsen Lear Amplifier Repairs
International postal repair service for Bang and Olufsen car amplifiers
Other Reasons For Failure
Often we see units that have ‘shorted out’ causing them in extreme cases to catch fire. Reports of a burning smell is quite common – we can replace the burnt out board and reprogram the unit with your original data (cost for this is extra) – In most cases we can rebuild the output section to full functionality.
All units are tested on a MOST Fibre test bench to ensure full operation and function.
When the amplifier is faulty the MMI screen may come on and shut straight back off , Usually a sign of water damage . The screen may stay on but no audio , Usually a sign of an electrical issue within the amplifier.
Is It Definitely The Amplifier?
9 times out of 10 it is only the amplifier – occasionally the tuner unit or navigation drive may have failed – proper diagnosis is important as you don’t want to send us the wrong unit.
Audi can no longer supply the protective cover 8T0 863 681 , cost of this part was around £25 – so we’ve made our own – it’s essential to stop water from entering the unit again . All repaired units come supplied with cover already fitted FREE of charge . We also coat the entire circuit board with a strong epoxy resin coating to further protect the unit as standard – this will not make it entirely waterproof but will protect it from the elements to a certain degree.
