Default Bang & Olufsen - White Led Strip Not Working

Long time viewer, first time poster.

Fellas, tonight I've noticed the passenger side door trim where the Bang & Olufsen speaker is located, the white LED strip that just sits underneath the Bang & Olufsen logo is not working.



How do I go by replacing this? I have taken door trims off in the past but not my S3.

Cheers!

Also why on earth would you want to fool with this? This is under warranty.

Oh believe me, I rather not fool around with it!

Unfortunately, warranty expired a couple of months ago. Called up my local Audi, they mentioned that the Ambient Lighting is part of the side door trim, it costs $1200~ AUD just for the trim - what a joke!

I will get my local mechanic to take a look at it, unless someone has experienced this issue and willing to share their experience on how they got it fixed?

Cheers

The front grill and the fiber optic are part of the door panel. There's a LED module that a fiber optic conductor feeds the light through. I'd guess you either have a loose connector (easiest fix) or the LED module is bad.

Part number for the LED module: 8V0 947 356

Breakdown of the parts on the doorpanel:

Thank-you for your thorough response mate, appreciate it.

However, I've got it working now. Took the side trim apart and noticed that the cable was lose, re assembled it and works it's fine!

Ha- that's the first time I've seen "loose" spelled "lose". There seems to be an epidemic the other way around!
Any way, glad you got it working again.

Have to say that only after you've opened this thread I've realized that it's illuminating :-)

Was it loose in the door, or where it goes to the body? I'm trying to identify what wire it is where it goes into the body without having to take the door panel off.....

Thx.
