    Default For those with CDC40!!!

    For you guys who have the stereo unit CDC40, there is an interesting modifcation you can now do.

    Again apologies if this is already known.

    The colour screen from the CD70 Navi can be simply plugged in to CDC40 and have all the benefits of the full colour screen.

    It has to be configured by tech 2, so if you buy a second hand screen, ensure the security code has been zeroed or it can't be configured in another car. A friend of mine has just done this to his Astra VXR which he specified with CDC40.

    Hope this is of interest.

    The colour screen retails at about £500, but you can get them second hand, my friend bought his from ebay in Germany for about £230, it did'nt matter that it was in German as it would be re-configured on tech 2.

    Heres a pic of the CD70 colour screen :-

    I have taken a few pics of the non sat nav functions, this is basically what you will see if CDC40 is installed with the colour screen.

    It is worth noting that you will need to change the vent/screen surround for the wide screen version before it will fit. This is what we had to do with the Astra VXR.

    I take it you remove the old by removing the radio and reaching in from there?

    Never done a Vectra, but on the Astra, we removed the stereo, bezel, simply removed the existing screen, fitted the colour screen is exactly the same way and plugged it in then fitted the new bezel.

    Then off to the dealers to get it tech 2'd up. Colour screens are an option on CDC40 in europe, I did see a Vectra OPC with CDC40 and colour screen while in Germany in March.

    Vehicle : SRi


    Engine : Z22SE (2.2 Petrol)

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 137000

    Default

    To get the screen out take off the plastic strip (silver on sri) and simply undo 4 torx t20s then tilt full screen/vent up and it all comes out.
