Anything i should be aware of?

Post by cooperpug406 » Mon Aug 11, 2014 10:57 pm

I'm looking at replacing the Pug's Clarion Cd player as its stopped reading discs,
Going to go for my favorite brand of Sony 8) , is there anything i need to be aware of, before i considered taking the old unit out.

I know i'll need the fascia kit, and adapter/patch lead, but want to check see if there issues that i should be careful to avoid :?:

Hi, I would check out Connects2 or a Yatour system.

I am not one for gadgets etc, but these just plug into the yellow CD player port in the back of the stereo and you can plug in an Mp3 player / mobile phone instead.. :idea:

This also keeps the factory look too, which I always prefer.

Check them out on eBay or similar to see how they work.
