To be honest it's the most straightforward swop I have done, the dash comes apart very easily and the wiring is a straight swop.......unless youur car has a built in amp but even then it's not bad. If you look at the forums and at youtube you'll be sorted and save yourself a fortune. If not any ICE shop will do it for you

wiring

The trim removal is as you said easy..The plugs (5) dont match..
even the aerial plug doesnt connect up...and that one looked the most straight forward.

Nothing from speakers

UPDATE ....ot the loom from Halfords..all wires connected and the unit powers up BUT nothing from the speakers..ITs not the unit as i wired it directly to a speaker and got sound that way..Any ideas what i should do .I dont have another stereo to test the loom ,,Is there anything unique (wiring wise ) on the cars >??
