    Just did it there !
    Who the hell said its a 5 min job ?
    HaHaaaaaaa

    I pulled the actual tape deck out and out popped the middle connector to the back (brown)
    I didnt seem to pull out that far so i though i was fooked connecting it back in..
    Gave it a tug and it gave abit..

    Anyone have bother with the fake button along the top. beside the button u press to heat the rear windscreen. Between that and the "card holder" which tbh is a complete waste of time..

    Only thing that really helped was the adjustable steering wheel

    NIGHTMARE

    Well its done and dusted now

    RANT OVER

    :D

    Should pull up or down. This really has nothing to do with this thread mate. Might be more worth your while posting up a new thread in the ICE section ;)

    The red tape you can take off just by pulling it up or down. Can't remember which but if you look at you will see.

    Sounds quality is not that good with these... I found that you cant put up the volume too loud else it cuts out, and yea as others have said, the tape likes to stop every now and then, i got it about 2 times every 2 minutes lol, un bearable!! but may work fine for others..

    Hmm, well - as Belkin give a lifetime warranty, I will give it another try and let you know whether it cuts out, and the cassette clicks etc. although I won't hold my breath :D..

    The lifetime warranty allows it to be taken back, once it 'breaks' :p

    Maybe there will be better sound quality because last time I tried it was poor ...

    I think its the actual "SEAT SOUND SYSTEM" that makes it click/jerk

    most likely, can safely say the seat sound system (for the ibiza chill 51) only causes headaches..

    I had an ebay tape adaptor, did the job and wasn't the worst sound quality I've ever heard but putting the stereo louder than 20 turned the music into white noise and the tape hiss and clicking soon got old. Invested in an ebay aux adaptor instead, it honestly makes a whole world of difference.

    Really, another £20 or so and you've got proper high quality sound as loud as you want it from whatever mp3 / cd / minidisc / record player you want to connect :D

    I agree with trips on this one, the slightly more expensive adapter is 100% better!! :) and belkin adapters cost only 10pound less... no crackling, no tape resets, nothing other than a quality connection!!

    But then you cant use the CD changer aswell, i went for the tape one as i still want the use of the CD changer.

    fair enough, i don't have a cd changer thats the problem!! i thought you could buy an adaptor for a better cd changer so it allows mp3 also to be connected to it.. costs alot more money for a new cd changer though I guess!!
