    Is your car an E46 or E90?

    Ah! I'm using the E46 today which 100% has a little speaker, when I get home, I'll have a look at one of the E90's and get back to you . . .

    I would just be stunned if it didn't work... but maybe it won't?

    Perhaps it could be that I have a hands free kit which is going through the speakers and maybe there's not enough "in ports" on the stereo? Seems like a longshot though...

    Not sure if this will help as it's for a US model. Speaker is H40 in the pic

    Cheers for the pic - I took of the panelling and I remember seeing the foam part that corresponds to that H40 diagram but I can't remember seeing if it had anything connected...

    Will dig out my screwdriver and see...

    i know on the E90's and some of the newer BMW's you do need a seperate adaptor if you lose the factory set up to keep the PDC, im not sure about that on E46's though.

    OK, both our E90's have speakers in pretty much the same place as the E46, they are mounted on the removable panel that screws to the underside of the dashboard, between the pedals and the steering wheel.

    However! Both our E90's have PDC front and rear. The front obstacles are announced through the little front speaker, rearward obstacles are announced through . . . . the rear speakers!

    Seems BMW may be right!

    have you got the prof or hifi logic system? if you have the bog standard business then you wont lose the PDC as it has the speaker, Prof and logic use the stereo and dont have the speaker, well they have the speaker but dont use it for PDC

    Hmmm... I think it is the Professional but it's back in Ireland so I will check when I get home on Monday.

    I've just been giving myself a cricked neck, taken off the panel and I can't see a speaker. The felt soft bit is there but it's not attached to anything and I can't see a speaker where I would expect to see like a cone or something.

    Worst case is that it isn't working: is there a way around it?
