    How to fit the CDR500 myself?

    I searched the forum for guides related to fitting the factory cd-player (cdr500) but couldn't find any . Does anybody know how can I fit it myself? I now have the car300 (cassette player). Are all connectors etc the same or is any wiring needed? Also, I will fit a steering wheel with the multifunction feature, I suppose that the line/connector for that should be somewhere behind the centre console?

    All the connections are the same and this really couldn;t be easier

    First you need to remove the grub screws that are sometimes in the holes the radio keys go in, once they are out use standard "U" shaped radio keys to take the headunit out and then all you need to do is push the new CDR500 into the orgional cage thats still left in the dash

    Not all the car's are prewired with steering wheel controls, if it is there it will be up my the steering column
