Where did you acquire a new Bluetooth module for this? Looking to do the same thing on one.

Thanks for asking

This guide is a student made guide created in collaboration between iFixit and the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth

As the student who made the guide I was asked to document the process of taking the device apart, but not to physically replace the parts so I unfortunately don't know where you can buy replacements

Luckily the team at iFixit is in the process of editing these student made guides and will be adding links to the devices main page with places where you can buy replacement parts

This guide is very new so I'm unsure how long it will take them to fully update it, but many edits have been made in the last 24 hours by their staff so I'd keep my eyes peeled

Hopefully this helped

great description, thumbs up!

I am wondering if there is a possibility to upgrade the bluetooth module with one that can be controlled by a seperate remote.

I have the problem that I use the speaker for my tv via bluetooth but there is no possibility to remote control the volume, or is there any other solution you could think of?

I'd love to know where you can get the Bluetooth module from! Mine just packed up over Christmas. Not the first one I've heard about; Marshall Bluetooth modules seem to fail more than most!
