    basic wear and tear items on 2002 Jetta TDI?

    Hi all,

    Was wondering if speakers are included in VW's "basic" wear and tear items that are NOT under warranty after 12 months /20K include speakers?

    My car is a year and a half old with around 60K and my speakers, simply put.. are BLOWN . its awful. one started to go then they all just blew and now my stereo constantly sounds like a crappy AM radio.

    if its not included, any advice on what to do? (getting older speakers, replacing them myself, etc,... not in any position to spend money on a system yet)

    The speakers aren't included after that amount of time I believe.. you could maybe goto your dealer and argue, but I'm pretty sure they will tell you it's not under warranty Sorry man!

    You'll be better getting a nice set of aftermarket speakers. They will be cheaper than stock ones if you have to pay for them anyway!

    Also, it depends on whether or not you have an aftermarket radio in there. If you have kept your factory radio with no mods, you might have a chance, but honestly, I doubt that they will replace the speakers for you. Call up Georgetown VW and talk to them. They might be a little more helpful than your local dealer.

    Don't know if you're local or not, so if not, 401 West, take Kitchener Exit (Highway 8) until it turns into King St. Ride down King, and you'll soon see the little shop on the right.

    kitchener is out of my area (for now) since im fairly busy with work.. but, can anyone give me a rough $$ on how much those clarion speakers that fit the Jetta IV would cost me? This is just a straight replace of those speakers which got damaged (all 8 would be replaced) , no additional subwoofer and amp (yet).

    I want to do this in stages. Help me out if you can!

    pretty sure... i mean, they sometimes come off and on (the sound is all crackly) ,. actually "hitting" the speakers makes the sound fully come through and then it fades back to sounding like crappy AM again...

    i dont think it would be the connections...

    the "degrading" of my speakers actually began sometime in the winter on a very very cold day as i recall. as i turned up the stereo, it sounded a little funny. from then on it was off and on sounding pretty bad till over the summer, everything just started going..

    i will verify this though by checking the speakers soon enough visually ...

    what else could it be, its not the deck i dont think

    I'm no electrician, but it seems highly improbable that all your speakers would go at the same time. From your description, I'm almost sure it is your deck, maybe blew a capacitor or something. Could have been something to do with that cold day.

    ...that's really wierd. Definitely need to look into that. Try taking a speaker out and connect it to another amp that you have (some radio or home entertainment unit or something,) and see if it really is the speaker aat fault. Are running the stock deck in your car, or is it aftermarket?

    I agree with this 100%. If you are going to lay down that kind of cash for speakers, then you might as well see if they are really the culprit. Do two things actually. One, try the above suggestion, and see if the speaker works hooked up to something else. Also might want to take say a speaker from a mini-system or something and hook that up. Just to see what happens. If the car speaker sounds okay hooked up to another radio, but a good radio speaker sounds bad in the car, then something is up with the wiring or the deck.

    Only other thing I can suggest is to take a look at the wiring in that 'elephant trunk' thing between the body of the car and the door. I don't understand how all speakers would go at the same time, though. It does sound like something might have happened with the deck. But that wouldn't explain why it temporarily fixes itself if you bang the speaker.

    Take the speakers out, and test them elsewhere. IF they work...take the car back to the dealer and have them check out the radio. Get them to throw in a Phatbox for your troubles. HA HA HA...okay, that last one is a little far fetched.

    just wanted to update this

    took the car into my VW dealer and told them the problem.. checked it out..

    all 4 door speakers are open circuited... and one tweeter in the rear

    they replaced them all under warranty... so no problems there.

    anyways, i'm still upgrading my sound system anyways sometime soon

    thanks for the help and suggestions everyone
