Now that I have a bit of time I am going to remove the Nav TV kit that was fitted when I bought the car and remove the CD changer as I have a new Kenwood unit on its way , I might take the nav out as well however this involves replacing the carpet.

I had a brief look tonight on removing the plastic panel removed all the screws however it is being held at the plastic bracket in the center on the front any advice on how this bracket comes off ?

And any pointers on removing the CD player appreciated the Nav cover was easy to pull off.

As you look at it, slide it to the right, (my bad 50/50 chance of getting it right (had initally said left!) I know I had had the same struggle and was chuffed when I worked it out!)
a short sharp motion - simples

You don't need to remove that top plastic part if you are only removing the Nav DVD - this has a lever latch that you can just see over the top, and then slides up.

The CD is bolted on in 3 places and you can just about get to them all without removing the carpet.In mine the connectors were real pigs to get off.

You will need two MOST loop connectors (DVD and CD) or none of the PCM peripherals will work - including the BOSE amp if you have it. Each of the orange 'cables is either an 'in' or an 'out' optic and so you need to be able to bounce the light back down the return cable, if that makes sense.

Ok so got it all stripped out and as suspected there was a navtv Ipod unit stuffed in the back of the nav unit , the only additional wiring appears to be a feed/neutral has been spliced in for power to the unit the nav unit had already bypassed the cd changer which had nothing attached. so I will need to order up a couple of most loops as Rich pointed out. Also on the look out for a bit of a front carpet to make a panel for the gap at the nav unit don't see any point putting this back in.

Nav unit is free to a good home if anyone wants it for there old ipod collection
