    moving its simple, HU out, move wires down, HU in!

    for the speering wheel controls, you'l need to find out first if your cd player is compatible with them, if so, you'll then need a sony stalk control adaptor, This normally plugs between the wiring loom and the HU
    Observe the masses and do the opposite

    as above, quite easy, remove the standard HU cage (if yo still have it in top) remove bottom tray by lifting thre little clips (youl see what i mean when you look), fit ur new cage in bottom fit HU as usual any issues give us a shout n i can help you out, hull isnt far

    as above again need to ensure HU is steering wheel compatible by looking in manual etc.

    For the sony-CDX model there is a jack socket in the back (Like what you plug headphones into) this is for your steering controls, but this is only on the CDX-GT225C, which i dont have as i just been to check and i dont have the jack socket Bumhole!

    Probably a new unit as the wires that lead out from the stereo are just speaker wires and the power and such. i got this with the car because i bought from dealer but it only had factory fitted CD player so i winged a bit and got the sony put in lol, i think its an X-Plod im not sure, what you got in?
