Hi Rob,
did you have any luck with replacing the head unit on your car, and does it have the built in sat nav?
Alex.

Hi, just fitted same head unit as vandy... Alpine CDE-113BT unfortunately didnt take pics of install sorry.
Got head unit adaptor from incartec who only take orders by phone as far as i know, points to note are: checking
how many pins in the connectors go into back of oem unit.. mine had 16 so needed a 16 way audio connector(adaptor number 29-644)but some have
6 & 10 way audio connector (adaptor number 29-645) if you want to keep steering wheel control you will also need a connector
lead.. mine was for an Alpine 29-001.. total cost was around £36 ish, oh also needed antenna adaptor which was £5 from halfords.

Looks a great fit just what I want to do. One question how are the sat nav voice instructions affected by the new radio do they still work?

Sat nav voice instructions are fed into the right hand front door speaker via a changeover relay - the stereo is muted to that speaker when the sat nav gives instructions so regardless of what head unit you fit, the sat nav will always take priority over that speaker. Hope this makes sense? Same applies if using the phone - I've got mine set up that the phone is directed through all speakers but the sat nav still cuts in on the RH front speaker when I'm using the phone.

Nice work.
Has your xt got sat nav? If so did changing the head unit effect this? I went to a local car part dealer and was told I would lose the use of my sat nav!

Hi all , had a similar problem when I replaced my unit , luckily I'm a service engineer and have a reasonable amount of small tools to hand. I filed slots down the side rails so I could move the unit further back. Kept the screws just tight enough to hold took unit back our once position was good then tightened everything up. Rebuilt dash all ok now.

Looks like a really nice job :-) I have a Pioneer Bluetooth unit to go into mine but i cant figure out how the old unit comes out and if there any issues with the satnav voice guidance with an aftermarket unit. Any advice would be appreciated.

EDIT, found the guide and looks easy enough. I have just ordered the ISO converter complete with wheel control box and patch lead so hopefully it will be sorted in the next week.
