I'm trying to fit a brand new head unit (
Pioneer MVH-X580DAB) into my Renault Clio, 1996 model.
The old head unit is called a
Philips DC 208 and has a single 10-pin input like this (exhibit A):
which connected via this crazy-looking thing (exhibit B):
into the car itself which has two 8-pin adaptors like this (exhibit C):
The stereo I have (which I guess is fairly standard) has this pair of 8-pin adaptors (Exhibit D):
So the temptation is to just put the two 8-pin adaptors directly into the car, by-passing Exhibit B altogether. But I'd like some reassurance that this is a sensible thing to do.
Can anyone shed light on what any of these wires are and how to hook the stereo up to my car?
