Replacement MULF Module?

I need some help as the MULF Module in my E90 325i has blown up!! It is the one which has the MOST optic fibre connection so now nothing with audio in the car works...

I was wondering if anyone knows what parts are suitable as a replacement? I have done some research online but am a little confused as to which one will work... The old part number was 84.21 6-975173-02 and it is the MULF Module made by Visteon. Am I able to use a MULF2 part?

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks,
SLC

Until you find a replacement you can re-arrange the fiber optic cables in the rear connectors to take the MULF out of the system and allow everything else to work...

This is for a CD-changer retrofit, but I believe this is the same MOST connector you need to take the MULF out of the loop, but I don't know which one goes to the MULF:

I did the CD retrofit and it took two tries to get the fiber connections right. The document isn't very explanatory on how the loops works.

That's ez to do! Remove the fiber optic cables from the MULF, shine a flashlight in the end you just removed, look for the light at the other end of the cable at the connector junction block behind the seat & voila! you have found the cable.

Just remove that cable, do same for other cable and arrange remaining cables in junction block to effectively remove the MULF from the loop...

It should, it is very popular in Europe for just Bluetooth retrofits. It may even be plug and play without any coding needed but you may have to code it in order to function properly. If you know of an independent BMW garage with an Autologic programmer, it should be easy to program and fairly inexpensive.

What have you done about your MULF MODULE?

I had the same problem. The MULF MODULE is $1200 for the part itself plus one hour labour to change!!
