2008 x5 amplifier

Hi all,

Having a problem with my 08 x5 voice command, PDC, and nav audio output. Dealer has diagnosed a bad amplifier (I do have dsp too).

If I swap it out for a new one, does it need to be 'reprogrammed' somehow by BMW?

Or if I plug in a working amp, should I instantly see the audio return to those functions?

Thanks in advance, just trying to understand if this can be an easy swap out fix on my end.

For anyone following, after speaking to 2 dealerships they both indicate the amplifiers are not plug and play and require programming to function
