GTV 2.0 T Spark

Stereo Replacement

Hi all,

I have a 2004 GTV with a Sony cdx-ca750 head unit already in, it has now decided to mess up when putting a new cd into it.

I have yet to clean the connectors but don't think it will work as the cd only works with the faceplate off, once you reconnect it the cd rewinds and freezes. I have no access to volume control, radio or anything else to that matter.

My question is this, am I able just to replace the head unit with another Sony cdx range? or indeed something else like a Pioneer or Kenwood? Trying to do this without extra connectors, been a long time since I've been playing around with the back of stereos.

Thanks for your advice.

GTV/Spider loom has standard ISO connectors so most aftermarket head units including Sony will fit. If buying new it should have the required 'patch' cable in the box. Just check with who you are buying, most dealers [including those on E Bay] are helpful.

I've given up on CD's in the car. Bought a Kenwood Head unit with a USB input. Now all my music is on a 32gb stick, easy. less to carry, and very convenient.
It fitted straight in to the Alfa wiring, no probs.
