X reg 1.8 elegance had a delco cdr500 fitted. Never needed to use the cd as, like the picture in Al94's link, it was permanantly tuned to radio 2. Never had that unit out but did have to remove and replace the car400 in my old 96 vectra (identical mountings) and that came out easy as you please once the grub screws were out. just took 2 lengths of wire cut from a coathanger. Dont know how some people on ebay have the cheek to charge 1.99 for them.
If its stuffed then a replacement will be approx £50ish on ebay.
A lot of money for a simple mistake. I advise punishing the kids by putting it back in and making them listen to chris evans, saying thats all it will pick up...
They already know Radio 2 and I'm constantly told to change it by the 2.5 year old, who is also the one responsible for stuffing in the second CD. Moral never let kids play in the front while you are doing something at the back.
I can live without the CD player anyhow, but been of the tinkering nature we got to give it a go.
A bit drastic.
At the end of the day the car gets changed in October anyhow, thanks to Motability.
