Someone fit my xcarlink? East Midlands area

What is says really, looking for someone my neck of the woods to fit my xcarlink as I haven't really got the bottle to do it myself.

I live pretty much bang on junction 28 of the m1, don't mind travelling. Will bring booze and money haha

Thanks in advance

I thought this mate and if you look at the how to guide it looks scarier than it is.

The how to guide is spot on. All it is is trim then route the cable where you want it and hey presto.
Good luck

Just follow the guide it is very detailed,

It'll take you about 2 hours from start to finish


The hardest part is lifting the panel from above headunit, get some plastic pry tools, I bought some from ebay for 3 (worth every penny)

just think of the sense of achievement

if you want the easy way out, theres a audio shop in Leicester where I got mine fitted, they'll charge 45-50. Although they blew the fuse for my cigarette lighter
