By another headunit, I mean a typical single CD headunit that you would purchase from Halfords for instance with the installation bypassing the OEM system...

I haven't had a chance to remove the front seat as of yet... It's been raining quite badly down here, so I'll wait for a dry day.

I think I've bought a bit of a lemon to be honest. I've had to do quite a lot of repairs to the car.
Typically the problems started just after the 2nd hand dealers 3 month warranty ran out.... So far I've had to replace both CV joints, both track rod ends, both front discs, the radiator, battery, the hatch wont open and I've had a problem with the imobiliser not dissarming..... so this is just another problem to add to a long list!!!

I suppose you could put it down to ware and tare, but it's wierd how the problems started with a radiator leak (coming from the fillement on the engine side) literally a week after the warranty expired.

It's a shame 'cos I love this car and don't want to give up on her....

Your help, as always, is appreciated....
Hi iam sorry to here you have had one job after another most of it as you say is waer and tear not sure about the radiator or radio?i will have a look at my fuse box diagram and take a pic for you if this helps i have never had to touch wood had to go to my head unit iam wondering if there is a built in fuse like on most aftermarker players???iam sure you will soon find out when you get the seat took out,i will go and take a pic of the fuse diagram asa and post it in here,all the best Donald.
