CDc fitting to car????

Recommended Posts

hi all. My car doesn't have a cdc so thinking of fitting one as can be picked up pretty cheap. What do I need? Obviously cdc, is there a loom already in car to connect to will I need optical lead ect. Any advice appreciated.

That's the D2B connector Phil. The white cap on it is a terminator. If you do the mod, don't lose it as if you need to remove a D2B module for any reason you'll need to re-establish the loop topography of the fibre optic network.

 

In more techy terms, if you don't bung it back the whole thing won't work :)

The small power connector will be in the loom somewhere as well.

If you haven't got it already you will need the mounting rack. If you have sat nav or premium audio or bluetooth you'll probably have the rack.

Have you got any other modules in the boot?

No it's a bear cupboard, but the changer I'm looking at is in its cradle plus cradle for satnav. So if I remove my audio unit from dash is there a loom to connect to or maybe behind glove box?so does that cable I've pictured go into cdc? Then what had to be done up front of car IE connections ect.

You have nothing to do at the front of the car Phil. The D2B will already be connected to your head unit.

You might have to go to a dealer or indie to get the car to recognise the CDC but the last four I've fitted for people didn't need that.

You'll need the power supply cable Phil. It will be tucked into the loom in the boot.

small two or three pin socket.

Best to wait until you get your CDC and you will see exactly what you're looking for.

If possible, get the seller to include the four bolts which hold the rack to the floor of the car Phil.

The connector picture you uploaded confirms that you have D2B Phil, I'd say your CDC will be the same as mine:-   1X43-1BC830-AC

 

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/04-09-JAGUAR-X-TYPE-CD-MULTI-CHANGER-6-DISC-CD-PLAYER-1X43-18C830-AC-/381272175419?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item58c597b33b

 

This link shows an example.

 

If the CDC has a 12 pin connector on the back it is NOT D2B compatible.

 

The link I've included is just the first one I found but if that's not to your taste then you need to be looking for a CDC from a late model S Type or X Type or X350. If they know what they are talking about they will know about D2B.

 

Do a search on Fleabay for the part number Phil, specifically, look at the prices paid for CDCs sold recently. You can get one with an S Type rack for about £70 if you're prepared to wait.

 

BTW, the X Type rack doesn't fit the S Type... I know, been there, done that, got the T-Shirt :(

 

If you end up with one that doesn't have a cartridge, I believe I have one or two lying around here somewhere :)

Just had another look where d2b is I can't see anymore spare connectors, did you say there should be a 3pin plug?

Yes. The CDC has a separate power supply cable. It has been somewhere in the loom on each car I've seen so far Phil.

It might be stashed behind the Kaiser panel and will probably be covered in foam.
