Replacing a stolen CD/ easy?


Well-known Member
Just had the single shot CD/radio nicked out of my car.

Pointless claiming as I don't have a protected no claims and the excess is £100.

How easy is it to fit a standard unit like this? Or should I go to a dealer? Or will an auto electrician be able to do the job cheaper and just as well?

Finally any suggestions for where to get a cheap CD/radio from, possibly 2nd hand even - and can anyone recommend a dealer in West Yorks/East Lancs area.

Thanks in advance

What car is it for Chris?

Most modern or german cars are fitted with ISO plugs making changing head unit a piece of p***.

Try someone like for cheap head units.

Cheers, Mylo

Thanks Mylo

It's for an Alfa 156 thats 2 years old. There's just a great big hole in the dashboard where it used to be and a couple of sets of wires plus one that looks like a phono plug.
