Renault and Philips produced quite a number of different model radio for their range of cars.
Quite often they are incompatible and I always advise replacement of the same model when possible or accept responsiblity for choosing another model.
The important factor appears to be the Vertical row of pins, as these are for the display and the stering remote.
The usual arrangement from the top is 3 pins - 2 empty - 2 pins.
I intended to insert a picture, but again have not succeeded in doing so.

Hope this may be of some help.

i checked the cd player and it is 3pins-2 empty-2pins so guessin that the tape player isnt (cant check as the car is in blackpool and i am in birmingham!!!) if the tape player is different does this mean the cd player is incompatiable and will not work at all??? or could i buy a connection??? :steam:
