e90 aux only working on one side ?

My aux has suddenly decided to play from one side of the speakers, I've tried different phones/cables/ipods etc cleaned the aux hole out with compressed air in case of dust ....nothing any ideas why this may of occurred and how easy it would be to fix ?

I've seen the aux cable from the hu on amazon for 50 which is well expensive for a 3.5mm female jack ? I've also seen a few people quote repairs for 20 online but they have a bt headset integrated eg. a parrot which I don't.


To clarify - BMW 320d e90m - 57 no BT unit or thirdparty unit and aux only working left side


thanks for any help

Have you tried using a new cable? Or if you juggle it and it plays intermittently on both sides, then you need a new cable. It's just a pretty standard 3.5mm cable on both ends.

I've had great results with these cables by putting a small smear of ATF on each connector, then repeatedly plugging/unplugging the cable.
