Item number?

Pressume you mean head unit ?

Depends on the type of head unit you have an the type that you are going to install, whether it has steering wheel control or not. Bit more info please, also out of curiosity is it double din and what kind of car ?

i have a pegeot 306

thanks

Your know how to fit it into the 306? and youll need the stereo head unit keys. Should be fine to use the stock wires as nothing will change. The head unit will only be active when the engine is switched on or 'engaged'

Hope it goes well .

That black rectangle on the pic showing the rear of the unit is the connection for all the wires. If the block from your car matches up, it should all work ok. If not, you can get an adapter from halfords.

Here's the installation manual to give you a starter for 10.

Head unit keys are special keys designed to enable you to remove the head unit from the cage that it is in, i dont know if you have a stock head unit or an aftermarket one currently?

I doubt youd be able just to slide it out, if you were then somethings not right . . .

Selling it on ebay as used would be kinda hard to get any money from as you see that your getting one fairly cheap just now.

I think that you would have to put the cage on with it aswell and any fixings for it to be a complete product
