I hope he's done two sets, I'll have a pair as a swap as it looks as though my floor covering has gone walkies now.

All in all took 6 hours fitting this yesterday old one was wired to a switch so forgot all presets etc. Also removed all old unused wiring for various things.. and a good tidy up but sounds good ran some premium speaker cable to the 2 6x9s under the rear bench [THUMBS UP SIGN]

Have you wired the radio to the leisure battery ?

Fuse 3 on the WBX, don't know if that is possible with a CU setup

No used the perm ig from van and switch live from box. But been thinking today would have made sense from the leisure for when parked up.

Just looked in my Haynes. Fuse 7 is said to be for accessories, fuse 8 is the same as fuse 3 on the WBX except that it also powers the brake lights.
