Question Fitting a CD player.

Got my 75 club se yesterday and found it only has a radio/tape player.Did this spec only come with this fitted?Anyhow can you get a normal CD player to fit in this space and can you get an adaptor plate?

You need fascia adapter from halfords. To remove old headunit under the woden.plastic flappy bit at top of headunit is two screws right under neath the plastic these undo, and a piece kinda drops out. then full the plastic bit out and and then use headunit removal tools to remove headunit, youll also need the bmw to iso adapter as your car has bmw wiring harness

The Halfords fascia adapter dont looks very nice, you can buy the OEM Rover one from the on line shop or from rover! And its cheaper than Halfords.

Or you can just fit a cd changer in the glove box/boot to run on your existing head unit

There are two ways to remove the head unit.

1. The easiest way without any special tools is to remove the wooden eyebrow above the head unit by prising out the black plastic cover underneath the eyebrow, and removing two phillips screws. Removing the eyebrow will expose a further two phillips screws which hold the black plastic assembly that houses the CD head unit. Careful not to lose these screws down the side of the console. Put a dab of slicon grease on the screwdriver to avoid dropping the screws.
Lift the plastic assembly including CD head unit up slightly 1/16" or so away from the AC display panel and pull the complete assy out, be careful not to catch the lugs and break them at the top as you pull it out of the binacle.

2. Two slits in the side of the head unit once the cover of the head unit open are visible, approx 1/32" wide by 5/16" high, insert a piece of steel in each side approx 3/4" deep and slide assy out. You might need speacila tools to do this unless you have access to sheet steel or something similar.
