Having got my hands on the missus' micra, I need to change the radio as 1) it is a tape player and 2) it does not show any info in the LCD display. I have a old Alpine CD unit to replace it with and the slot in the Micra looks DIN shaped.

Is it plug and play or do I need an ISO lead? My Ibiza of the same age was a straight swap with the OEM stereo although you needed to swap the live connections to retain the settings. Any tips for the Micra wiring?

I'll need those for when the alreadly rattley CVT gives up.

But at 900 quid you don't expect too much.

a quick look across the web and eBay shows that the micra 00- needs an iso adapter, -00 doesn't show an adapter being needed so i assume it's standard iso, should you find it does need an adapter you could always solder the radio's harness straight in, here's a micra website listing all of the colours you need to wire it in :) hope it helps you

Needs an iso adapter mate.

Scrappy may still have one so I will ask when he comes in.

I put a sony stereo in my mates Micra a year or so ago.

Looking at my emails this is the bits i needed:

"Nissan Micra Car ISO Wiring Harness Lead PC2-13-4 "
http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l2736&_nkw=PC2-13-4+

And you need the aerial adapter
"PC-5-27 - ISO Aerial Adaptor"
http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l2736&_nkw=PC-5-27


You can buy them together on eBay:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_nkw=PC2-13-4+aerial&_sacat=0&_odkw=PC2-13-4&_osacat=0&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313


Nothing else was needed. Worked fine with no problems.

Can't see any obvious tooling holes on the radio, only the 2 screws under the heater controls. I'm guessing if I remove the screws the big piece of trim comes off.

The plastic trim round the outside of the radio should just pop off, after that you've got the 2 holes for the radio keys

Was the micro one not held in by screws once you loosened the surround off?

Is it not two screws behind/under the ashtray? There is no need for stereo keys. Im sure as A15CRO says, there is two screws, and it comes out with the frame still attached, and then you have to re fit the frame to the new stereo.

Forgot to say I changed this.

Doesn't sound too bad with an old Alpine head unit. Exisiting speakers are more than alright. Doors, pillar tweeters and rear shelf. My wife is very pleased with it.

I took my mates stereo back out last month as he scrapped the car. Came up to MOT time and it was goin to be around £400 to put everythin right! :D

Very easy to change.
