The rear fuse box is missing unless you have the elite or any of the options like heated seats, steering wheel, parking sensors etc that are in that fuse box in the manual, I looked for it before to run a boot 12v

I wish....I diff sounds research into adding my own rear fuse box but seemed hard, then I looked into a 12v run from battery with a relay to control it...in the eggs I went with the basic option of multi plug from the original 12v stored under the passenger seat assigns wire hidden along the rubber moulding.

Thanks for an excellent guide! I have one question regarding the part where you need to uncover the hidden screws to the glove box, how do you unclip the side panel? Just pull and hope for the best? I'm afraid i might brake some clips...

Just a pull and unclip basically, from what I remember it's like a lid, with clips around the edges, pretty easy to do.

Open the glove box an unclip this front edge, should be enough to access the screws.

Hey

Mine is opel and left hand drive car
I think my radio is located behind the glove box
But it's not the same connectors and colors as in pictures in your guide, mine is a 7 "r 4.0 intelliLink
Believe it is the brown connectors for my speakers, What do you think ..?

Wanted to chime in and say thank you for this guide.

I have replaced my front speakers with some nice Focal jobs and immediately ran into problems that the stock amp could not drive them despite them being 4ohms as the stock ones, all sorts of odd clipping of the low end at any volume.

Using a Pioneer GM-D1004 amplifier I was able to chop into the front channels and bypass the useless stock amp.

Sounds much much better.

My system is the same as the above poster, the wires are the same as for the Nav900 but they are located in the opposite plug and in different positions. The brown plug, speakers all along the rear of the connector as you have photographed it and coloured as this guide has them listed for channels.

WIll pop some pictures up later.

Hi,

I have a high-end sub, which I would like to carry over from my Astra G into the new K. Does anyone know maybe how low-level outputs can be obtained from any of the radio harnesses? My amp does not take high level input and to tell the truth for this level of D class amp I would not want to use high level conversion, would be nice to have low level output somehow. If not availalbe at all can the factroy amp and sub be installed to a Navi 900 system afterwards, like at home or at a dealership? I mean is there a harness already built in for that, where is the place of the factory sub within the car??

Thanks.

You need a high level to low level converter, then splice into the loom at the amplifier as the OP has done.

There are no low level outputs on the system.

is it possible to just unclip the side panel without removing anything else?
