    Default is it easy? CD30 and CDC40 swap

    Just bought myself an '05 Vectra Sri 2.2 Direct in black, will be picking it up on Wednesday, just cant wait!!!

    But the stereo... Now I am sure it has a CD30 version which does not have 6 disc in-dash, so I think I will try to get hold of a CDC40 - hopefully this is where I will get the help I need....
    Has anyone done a straight swap before OR does anyone even know if it is possible?


    and another little question about the CD30, des it play MP3's?

    Just offer the two radio rears up, and see if they seem the same at the plug, should be ok.

    thought it was not as simple as that, saw something on here about changing the cd30 to cd30mp3 saying it could not be done even with tec2

    As above, CD30 and CD30MP3, says on the top right on the front.

    When I bought mine I had the CD30MP3 installed along with the twin audio instead of the standard CD30

    Cheers

    oh ****** 'ell - I think I will wait until I actually pick the car up from Vauxhall and see what it's got and not!

    I think I read something somewhere about changing stereo's needing a TECH2 visit!

    Ok, what if I DON'T get it TECH2'ed before I take it out? What I mean is, it is possible that the stereo's on ebay may not have been TECH2'ed - what can I do, if I can do anything, to get them working again?

    Also if I get it TECH2'ed when it gets removed, do I need to get it a different Vauxhall stereo TECH2'ed back INTO the car???

    The stereo is 'mated' to the car's ECU and will only work in the original car unless the bond is removed by a dealer before removal. One that hasn't had this done will not work in any other car and a dealer won't reset it in case you've stolen the radio.
