Plastic box of wires to big for my new cd player after taking my old cassette player out


You wll need a stereo installation adapter kit. This will change the dash opening to the size you need, oftentimes by replacing an entire dash panel for a factory look.

Here is a link to the dash kit for your car at Best Buy. These will come with detailed instructions. Let me know if this helps :)

Wiring stereo 1995 BMW 318Ti


HI, you do not need a wiring diagram, do you have a stereo already installed, if it is factory it is probably a baupunkt or a pioneer, although no bmw came with a radio as standard years ago, they where all fitted at the dealers. check for your constant positive with your meter. then find the ignition positive, ie.only on with the ignition, the constant keeps all your programmed channels. earth noemally brown on a bmw. but live in you're house!! green with a yellow tracer or line in your house is earth. then the feed to the electric aerial if you have one, if not forget about it, i think it is grey? then you just need your speakers, they are normally on a totally different plug, if you have 2 plugs thet are din plugs, or deutsch industrie norm. or in english german standard normal. It is a set size or measuremeent, din radio will basically fit into that size of hole in a dashboard.the speakers are normally gery with a black tracer, white with a black racer etc. if you touch these and do not get a shock they are speaker wires, ...only joking, you cannot get a shock from any of them..It should be easy enough to swap over especcially if you are just upgrading to anothr radio. just undoo each speaker with the stereo on to see where thet are located in the car, you cannot do to much damage. if the wires are say grey and grey with a black tracer, if you wire them up black and then grey with black tracer the wrong way around , they will still work, its not like putting the positive to the earth etc, on the radio.I doubt if there is actually a wiring diagram for basic bmw models, except for the 7 series top of the line, in the 80's the radio case for it to fit into was not even in the top of the range 5 series, we had to fit them in, the latest 3 series which had it in the dash came in from germany with a big plastic plate where the radio should be, datsun started fitting radios,as standard roll on nissan....

Ive bought a peugeot306 recently and the person who had the car before has took there car stereo out and cut the wire, so now im having trouble putting my stereo in. thanks


  • First thing to do is isolate all the cables from each other and put insulating tape over the bare cables.
  • Now using a multimeter set on 12 volts or above test each cable in turn with the ignition on.
  • You will find one live cable that is only live when you have your ignition in the number one position.
  • This is the live feed to your radio, fit a small amp-age fuse (5 or 7.5 amp) depending on the rating for your new radio.
  • You will have speaker wires, these you can identify by tracing them from each speaker.
  • By now you will have identified your live cable and your speaker cables.
  • You may have a secondary live for a electric aerial and an earth cable. You must earth your radio even if you have to make an earth on the inner bodywork.
  • If you do not need the secondary live then make if safe.
  • If you need the secondary live fit an appropriate fuse.
  • Earth the new radio.
I use this system on used cars before fitting radios/cd players. It works but be careful.
