    ok just to help anyone out.....i have a mk4 57 plate 1.9 tdi FR (pd130) and have an alpine stero fitted with steering controls...originally bought the can-bus as that is what my audio centre said it was, but didnt not fit, so order the iso adaptor as found by nickyjam and it works fine!

    Hi Guys,

    This is my first thread, but I wanted to comment on this replacement HU thread. I have an 07 Ibiza Cupra with an after market Kenwood HU. I spent 20 minutes in the car last night removing the standard Alana HU and with the aid of the Connects2 unit (CTSST002) and the Kenwood specific adaptor managed to get my HU working. I have lost NONE of the controls, all still work perfectly for me. The biggest problem I had was trying to fit all the cables and ISO blocks in behind the HU. I left the HU in the original slot in the end, but as someone mentioned in a previous thread, there is a slight gap between the HU and tray below.

    I hope this helps. I spent ages looking through all the threads to find the correct leads to order.

    Gaz.

    no you haven't gone wrong, those 3 extra are so you can manually tap into the car's loom to pick up those other features that may not come on some models (as the leads will work with VW, Audi, etc). By the sound of it you have a DVD hu adapter but should still work

    yes it is a tight fit but it IS still possible to fit all the wires in. basically you have to remove the stow tray so as you push it back you pull the wires either side at the back...there's also some pockets towards the top where the blocks can be shoved in to

    More great info

    I have only owned my 08 Ibiza 1.9 TDi FR for a few days now but have already found a wealth of info on this site. Granted that some info needs to be researched thoroughly before acting on it, that goes without saying unless the info is proved beyond a shadow of a doubt to be 100% accurate. I still think this is the best forum I've joined so far and I'm looking forward to finding out a lot more about my new car.

    I have followed the very informative flip key discussion and also this thread about the aftermarket options to retain steering wheel control on a 3rd party headunit.

    I have opted for an Alpine CDA-9886r with the USB socket and iPod control (a must for me).

    On the advice I've read here I have bought a Connects 2 CTSST002 and the Alpine patch lead to go with it from Dynamic Sounds LTD.

    I pulled the factory Alana mp3 unit out of the dash to check the rear connections before making my purchase. I found that the Alana in mine had the 1 x large connector with the 2 x smaller connectors mounted directly below it, this also lead me to believe that the Connects 2 kit I ordered should be ok. Did I do the right thing in looking at the connectors on the rear of the stereo? I seemed to make sense with the fitting instructions on the Dynamic Sounds website. Time will tell eh!

    The prices on their website were decent IMO.

    Cheers,

    Jon.

    Know this is a ongoing thread but just to confirm after removing the std Alana unit from my 58Plate 1.9tdi Sportrider and checking the wiring (audio sites checker says CTSST001) they are wrong ! as already said we are not CAN-Bus with the quad lock connector

    My car is one of the last MK4s and has the std black / brown radio connections + the wider black connector which is the wiring for the steering wheel connections. this connects as already pointed out to the correct connects2 CTSST002

    Sorry to drag this back up guys. I have an 05 plate ibiza. The 'Connects 2 CTSST002' says on the website that it is only compatible upto 05.

    Should it work? I have seen that some of you have used that with newer cars.

    Is there a definitive adaptor that works?

    I have got a JVC kd avx 44 (DVD) head unit and I would like to fit it to the Ibiza and also retain the wheel controls!

    Are the eBay leads any good?

    Curtiz, You will not have problems friend, many people have tried it and it works great with Alpine ... The problem I have it I do not know even one case that have tested Clarion. My radio is a Clarion DXZ788 RUSB.
