Re: Pulled out my 2002 dbl-DIN CD, pics & wiring diagram (UKAUSSI)

As I already posted before somewhere else, you'll see that the wiring is completely different from the other Monsoons. The pin spacing in these new plugs is different... So you won't be able to hook up the plugs from the Blau or the Metra harness either. So there is no direct fit as we stand, meaning you'll have to cut/splice wires.
UKAUSSI, could you also shoot the antenna plug ? For the record, Bosch has recently introduced (2 weeks ago in Canada) a converter to make the new plug fit the old-style plug.
You'll also see that there are no wires for "dimmer" and "ignition". Those are handled by the CAN & CAN + wires... So the radio receives data now, not signals on wires...
The negative wire speakers are also all black, except for one. The left front wires are inverted (yellow is negative, black positive). My car was also like that.
I was able to replace the double din by a CD51 Heidelberg and a A09 indash cd changer, so I don't think you'll have problems fitin g a single din & tray.

Re: Pulled out my 2002 dbl-DIN CD, pics & wiring diagram (vw2.0gti)

That is exactly what I was going to put in place of the factory Monsoon Double din.. the A09 in-dash cd changer and the CD51.
1) What did you do with the CAN CAN wires that are used for the VAG signals??
- I just left them in the big thing, unplugged. So far, no problems.
2) Did you have any problems fitting both the CD51 and A09 on top of each other? Did both trim rings from both units fit or did you have to modify them?
- No, they fit just right.
3) How did the slip on sleeves hold onto the plastic, are they secure enough to hold both din units?
- They are quite secure, although not enough to my liking. But it'll have to do !
thanks for the info in advance....
You're welcome !

It is feasible, but I never said it was easy or without problems

Right now, my radio is constantly "ON" (since the ignition wire is non-existent) and doesn't dim (ditto). I had to plug the dim, ignition and 12 volt wires on the same B+ wire from the car to make it work. This means shutting the radio down every time or come back to a drained battery ...
I don't think a dealer would let you go with a car like that... They'll have to wait until someone does an interface for these
CAN wires...
I'd skip the VW indash unit and go with a Blau, personnaly. I don't think you'll like the sound of the OEM unit after all (IMHO).
