radio replacing

Postby andrewwilson1964 » Fri Jul 06, 2007 4:28 pm

Hi all, I'm looking to replace my original double din radio/cassette (no cd!) with a regular single din cd radio. I have a mk 2.5 and was looking for information on removing the old unit and about the wiring at the back. would be most greatfull for any information.
cheers

right hand and left hand trim of the radio pop off and give access to the holes where you are supposed to use 2 pairs of removal tools to take radio out - but you can use small alan key to put in holes and release radio

I think wiring plugs are standard - if not you can purchase adaptor plug depending on which cd player you plan to use - you will obviously need blanking plate or cubby

I'm in carluke if you need help

Thats interesting?????????

Think thats 'cos the unit I replaced was perhaps an after market unit, and already had the adaptor fitted.
