    New owner saying hi...and a question !

    Hell othere all, I'm Justin and I've just bought a Zaf 2.2 Elegance on a Y plate ( 01 year ) with 64K on the clock and a full history - painted in a metallic greeny / blue. Paid £2995 for it, does that sound reasonable ? It was on his forecourt for £3995 so I negotiated slightly with a big wad of cash :-)

    Anyways, I want to fit a Sony MP3 head unit to the Zaf - does anyone know if the standard DIN cage is easy to remove as my headunit doesn't have standard ISO rear connectors and after fitting a Sony / ISO adaper it sticks out - so I figure I need to bin the standard cage, fit a Sony one and interface to the wiring loom. Anyone had experience of doing this to a Zaf ??

    hi there and welcome i've but a different head unit in mine once you remove the old head unit look at the back of the cage and you will see a allen key bolt undo this and unclip the iso conection vauxhall use a standard concetion but u may need to change the red and yellow wires around on the head unit to make the memory live work ok pal

    Welcome!!

    I have recently fitted my pioneer into my Zaf with no issues, make sure you tuck the ISO connection and all the wires down at the back as you might have difficulties pushing the new unit back all the way.

    This is a great forum and you'll find anything you need to know (I have!) just use the search feature.

    Hi Justin welcome to the astra ownrs club and more importantly for you the bus lane

    there will be loads of pointers on how to get the new radio in working and even using the steering wheel controls. if you have a new head unit then chances are it'll have a cage to go with it, if not you can pick up universal ones from places like halfords.

    sounds like you did ok doing a deal on the bus, got any pics? what else is in store for it?

    Gav.

    use this for a pic uploader www.imageshack.us then click the link 'hotlink for forums 1' (dont forget to de select the include details) as it will only plaster the image with a link for imageshack.
