How do I increase the gain from my Aux Audio jack in the glove box (E60)?

I had an aux audio input jack installed in my E60 glove box many years ago, but even with my iphone audio turned all the way up, I can't hear most songs if my windows are down or if there is a lot of road noise, even with the volume knob turned all the way up.

1) Is there just a resistor I can change out that will increase the gain?
2) Looks like I need to remove the glove box to get to the do I do that?

Thanks for any help or other ideas.

I have done that by just pressing the volume up button on the side of the phone didn't actually take my volume to the max. But I had to manually go into settings-sound-volumes and move the bars all the way to the right. Then a message comes up mentioning safe hearing levels. Try this. Or I think you should install the a couple of apps "Awesome BEATS" and "noozy" along with the "Noozexide EIZO-rewire PRO" which is the actual fix. Hope this will work. Else take your car to an auto repair center so that they can solve it easily.
