2005 c320 amp issue. Help :)

My name is Robert and i am new to the forum so please bare with me. I currently own a 2005 c320w4 and am having trouble with my amp. The radio will turn on but no sound. I have had this problem on another w203 ive owned. Is there a way to bypass the factory amp or run an aftermarket amp in its place? It seems the replacement is 500.00 on the cheap end and I cant see spending that. I know some other folks have had trouble with no bass and so on. I dont want to have the same issue down the road & have to buy another $500 amp. However no radio sucks and so dose my singing Any help or recommendations would be great. The amp part number is A1698204689 and its a Harmon K.

Thanks all

Wow $500 is a bargain for a new one. A1698204689 lists for $1390 on the US parts catalog.

I would post your problem in the W203 forum or the Audio & Telematics forum.
