Suspected Factory AMP Problem
My friends MK8 Civic with Sat Nav (completely standard) is emitting a loud screeching noise through the speakers which persists regardless of the stereo being on/off (could turn the volume of the radio up to mask the squealing, but it was always present) - We've had to pull the fuse to kill the sound to make it bearable to drive.
I'm suspecting it's the amp (other suggestions welcomed!), I've had a substantial google and it seems the amp lives below the stereo and appears to be accessible on later models via the foot well.
Can anyone confirm the model of the amp? My eBay searches come back with a Bass Works unit 08A54-SNA-3M0?
Can anyone confirm access - Is it possible to swap via the foot well in a MK8 or is it centre console out job?
Any other suggestions given the symptoms?
After further browsing of the forum it appears the Bass Works Amp is relatively rare? In that case, do standard models not have an additional amp and we can just swap the head unit?
Thanks in advance.
