Here is what you must know about rear amplifiers recall (I've read the
Audi paper myself): Only amplifiers with connectors are subject to
recall. The instructions say something like "if wires are soldered to
the circuit board - do nothing and mark recall completed".

I learned this hard way having "completed" the recall and finding out
that my sound is still not working. Long story short I discovered that
new amplifier circuit board connector is the same as AT computer board
power connector. I soldered connectors from an old AT power supply to
the speaker wires and installed new amplifiers I got from the dealer.

The front speakers will most likely fail for the same reason. I had one
fixed at, now tempting to send another one but
have too many other more important things on my schedule.

BTW, I was able to completely restore jumping stock radio buttons by
placing some one side sticky thin foam under them. Have pictures if
anyone is interested in keeping stock radio working.
