Head unit upgrade

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had any success in upgrading the head unit in their XV's? If so where did you get a harness to connect the two together from?

I bought a Kenwood last week, with a harness kit which when I've opened up the dash, removed the old stereo unit and tried to connect it up doesn't fit, there are several connectors not there on the new harness.

I'd tried getting my Subaru dealer to price me up an upgrade but they still haven't done it, has taken them three weeks to let me know when the recall kit will be in for the other outstanding work

Thanks in advance 

Ade

In the harness adaptor did you get the steering wheel control loom as well?

No there wasn't one available which fitted and when I have looked online nothing seems to meet the spec\criteria. 

I've just been to my local mechanic who says he may be able to source one.

So he wasn't able to, and my Subaru dealer wasn't much help either today when it was in for 2 more recalls ( thats 3 this year)

I've found a company called Accutek in Winchester who I spoke to today and they reckon they can order the cables in for me..So I've placed the order and should have them by next friday
