The Parrot kits are pretty good and generally easy to fit. As you don't have an in-dash CD changer, the ISO connectors will be on the back of the head unit as you'd expect. Models with in-dash CD changers sometimes have the amplifier (with the ISO plugs) elsewhere in the car.

Be aware that Renault use what Parrot refer to in their documentation as 'Reverse polarity.' It's incorrect terminology, and what they really mean is that the permanent and ignition live feeds are swapped over from the proper ISO standard. It's also worth noting that Renault generally use 'Mute 3' on the Parrot loom (all of this will make sense when you get the kit and read the instructions.)

For fixing, get the 'No more nails on a roll - permanent' tape or sticky pads. This is the stuff that finally succeeded in sticking my TrafficMaster YQ bracket to the dash, when just about everything else failed. The permanent tape has a red backing - they do others that have blue or yellow backings, but you should avoid those as they're not up to the job.
