Fiat punto cd system help !!

Hi ive just recently bought myself a black  fiat punto (new shape), i was wondering if any one could help as it comes with a built in tape/radio player but i wanted to install a cd played its not a case of swapping the tape player for a cd player as the whole thing is built into the front just above the heating fans( similar to a KA car )  how do i install this there is a gap at the bottom of the section below the fans and ashtray which looks big enough to put in a regular cd player but i wanted it all in one ie not the tape/radio at the top then a new cd player at the bottom. can any one help ??? :?  :?

Hi.

Wife had one of those until recently, 2002 model.

Spotted  a direct replacement CD/ radio in the showroom on one occasion, salesman said it could be dropped straight in within minutes but wife preferred to keep tape so did not persue price etc.

So they are available but might be pricey.

Hi Jelly

Probably the easiest and cheapest way is to install a CD player in the boot. Most head units (the bit in the dash!) will accept a multi CD player, but check with Fiat first. The may try to sell you one, but it'll be expensive. Try you local ICE dealer.

Good luck.

They are fixed in postion using a small bracket. Very neat and tidy. You might even have room under the front seat. Pop into your nearest Iceland, sorry ICE, they won't bite. Halfords do a reasonable job.

Happy Listening. big_smile

You can buy an adapter for the dash  from halfords or Fiat make them themselves and i think they are cheaper than halfords. It will cost about £10 then the standard sized cd player will just slot in.
