Has anyone had any problems fitting new, front-loading car stereos into their GTV? I hate the basic tape player and wouldn't even consider feeding a boot-loading CD player into it. Are there any additional adaptors needed and is it easy to get the existing piece of kit out (with no keys)...
It's a piece of cake - no adapters needed. Even I managed it!
The only vaguely tricky bit is getting all the cables back in without trapping them. I removed the carpet from the side of the centre console in the driver's foot well. You can then get your hands behind the new unit and keep all the wires clear as you push it back in.
I got a stereo specialist to fit mine. A nice Kenwood mini disk head unit and Kenwood CD stack in the boot. They fitted a plastic surround to cover up the gaps which worked a treat. Pity the original speakers ainít up to much.
