Hi all,

Have just joined. First of all, thanks to everyone in this thread for the useful information, has been very helpful. Trying to install a double din head unit at the moment, and have bought a replacement bezel designed for it.

Possibly a stupid question, but can someone please tell me how to disconnect the heater/fan control plugs? There is so little slack in the wiring I can barely even turn it over to see the back of it, and from the pics at the start of the thread it looks like they can be easily disconnected.

Do I need to undo any of the screws on the back of it, or is it just a matter of trying to push/pull whatever little clips are on the plug and pull the hell out of it?

Already wasted an hour swapping the ciggy/power socket over onto the new bezel so hoping this job will be a bit easier :)

cheers

I unscrewed mine. Couldn't get it any other way. Not saying there isn't one, I just couldn't.

So here's my issue...I installed a double din stereo in my 03 ZX3, and when I did so I just slid the stereo into the bezel and locked it into place. I never took the 4 screws out from the back of the bezel, is there anyway that I can possibly get my stereo out of my car now?

Does this have to deal with installing a double Din? You likely will get more support by starting a new thread or searching for one more relevant if not.

unless you hook up the controls or the head unit identifies that it can work with steering wheel controls it likely will not work. there are some that do, and there are some that dont.

What aftermarket head unit do you have?
