6000CD swap-out question

6 posts in this topic

I have a 6000CD (with centre volume knob) that has the CDDJ button and want to replace it with a 6000CD (with centre volume knob) that has an AUX button.

Is it just a straight swap-out?

Fitted fine as I suspected. Fitted the mp3 jack in the glovebox and works great!

Yes it was, but remember the one I fitted is exactly the same size as the old one and fitted the fascia exactly - it was more the functionality I was concerned with. The Sony one my have a different fascia panel and connection etc so you need to check all this out before hand.

You will need a harness adaptor, an aerial adaptor (unless you have one with the Sony unit) and a fascia adaptor, they all differ depending on which year etc you have. Best check with a shop like halfords (speak to someone old looking as they should have a clue) or car electronics as they are fairly knowledgeable. The other alternative is to go to a specialist but they can be a bit weird if you just want their advice.
