Hi all,

 

I have a 2005 2.0 HDi xsara picasso and i would like to fit a cd changer to the car, is the wiring loom for the changer already in place? or do i have to purchase a loom and wire it to the radio myself?

 

Mine is a "desire" spec so mid range, as the radio has the button for a cd changer i would have thought the loom would be in place but obviously disconnected? or is there likely to be no loom there.

 

If there is a loom where am i likely to find it? i have taken a quick look in the storage area on the left hand side of the boot however i can see no plug even behind the cover.

 

Thanks in advance

 

Max

Do people still use CD's in cars?  If you're going for "retro" you might as well install an 8 track cassette system while you're about it!

Sorry,  I'm only being flippant because I can't answer your perfectly reasonable question.

The cd changer was usually fitted in the boot. On the left is a 12v power supply meant to be for a trailer tow bar. This is behind the passengers side panel in boot.
I can only suggest a visit to a car radio fitting shop.
