Swapping Stereo

Hi guys,

Bit of advice please, if I was going to swap the original stereo in my FN2 to one from another FN2 as it keeps cutting out will it just work or is there any security around it such as code that I would need for it to work?

Thanks in advance

dont think that there is a security code, it should be plug and play

Not too sure on that.

The audio unit is VIN coded to the vehicle so a unit from another may need to have this reset to accept the changed VIN.
