Hi, it isn't possible to use the MCD-36 with the Visteon unit, unless you can find a convertor box . . . will probably be expensive, if it even exists!!

Stilo Changer Compatability!?

Hi there! I'm new to the forum, just bought an 02 reg Fiat Stilo in Broom Yellow last week! I was wondering if anyone could help me. I'm planning on upgrading my head unit in the near future, but I want to keep the 5 disc changer in the upper glove box. Anyone know which after market headunits it would be compatible with or whether there are any adapters? One other thing is that I haven't been given a code for the changer, how could a find mine out?

Thanks!

Re: Stilo Changer Compatability!?

Fair enough, I'm open to opinion, could I get one (any make) that would fit snug into that upper glove box? and how do I get it out?

Cheers!

Re: Stilo Changer Compatability!?

Great car purchase there, welcome to the Broom Closet!!! (my new Club for Broom Yellow FIAT drivers ).

Changer; you've got the IDC-A09. It's compatible with only Blaupunkt units, and you'd have to check with a car audio accessory outlet (or the net) for adapters.

The IDC-A09 is a standard single-DIN unit, so any unit of the industry standard size will go in - but there aren't that many of that size (changer I mean)! Failing that you'll need to route the cables into the boot and install a new changer there.

Code; if it's needed, there are *certain* websites you can post the serial number of your unit and somebody will respond with the code; again, google it .

Welcome to the forum too!!!

Cheers guys! Well I'll have to have a think about it! And thanks for letting me in the closet, broom yellow quite simply brushes any other colour aside, got to say the yellow swept me off my feet when I first saw it, very clean and tidy!
