Swap HU in 156 facelift...Simple or not?
I have a standard Alfa Headunit in my 2005 156JTDM, which works with the steering wheel controls.
Is it a direct swap to change it over to my Kenwood KDC-3047A CD/MP3/receiver head unit?
I am not too concerned about the steering wheel controls, but would the stereo unit work OK just as a 'normal' stereo. I shall of course get the facia adaptor so it looks correct.
I want to see what improvement, there is with a different HU, before going the 'whole hog' and getting all the interface parts/patch leads etc...( advice about this has been gleaned from this very forum on that !)
I have contacted my local auto electrician but he is not familiar with the car(!), so any advice is most welcome.
Just to add, I am not brilliant ( at all ) with auto electrics, just aware of the basics !
Thanks in advance.
