Default Aftermarket stereo

My mate bought a pioneer stereo for his 55 plate 207 today, we got the wiring and aerial connector that's all on fine, but it needs power. I was just wondering where's the bet place to cut into? Ciggy lighter? If so, what's the best way to get to it? Surely the wire runs down the back of the stereo with the loom, can someone show me pics of the right one? Or at least how to get the centre console out for me to get to it. I'd rather cut into it at the top for the obvious reason (less hassle).
Cheers guys.

Or if anyone knows what wire is the live from the standard stereo with pics. Any help would be much appreciated as a bit stuck! Lol

If you have the correct loom adapter there should be no reason to go searching for a live supply. The Live / Switched Live and BSI controlled live are all present in the Quadlock. A multimeter or 12v test lamp/screwdriver will help identifying them.

ITS best not to cut ANYTHING as storeman says what you need is there BUT it may not work as you intend and if you do mess with the wiring its very easy to end up with a car that no longer starts !

Plug identifiers are on this page (scroll down a bit)

RT3 fiche différentes... - Autoradio - Electronique embarquée - FORUM Forum-Peugeot

It's in French but should be clear and allows the comparison of the different feeds for a quad lock plug and the ISO plugs. I would highly recommend a stalk interface though as it will give the switched live feed and permanent feed and the VAN interface to allow for auto-dimming and save a lot of hassle

If you decide to take a live feed, take it from pin 16 on the diagnostic plug and it's then easy to thread it through behind the dash to the back of the radio.

If you fit an after market stereo you may find the Display above the radio will no longer work. Just a thought.

The display should still work but without the radio information.

like the original poster i too bought the adapter from halfords that required cutting in switched power (on their advice as a temp solution i linked the perm power to the switched feed) so that it was always powered and worked but turned off when the front display was removed from the radio

i since then did the research and bought an adapter that has a "phantom" power lead built in Connects2 CT20PE04 Harness Adapter

CT20PE04 Harness Adapter Peugeot 207/307/407 | Car Audio Direct

it is just a plug and play adapter no cutting of wires at all the stereo now turns off properly when the key is removed from the ignition just dissapointed that halfords sell the "wrong" adapter in my eyes for the car

only thing i dont have is the stalk adapter but as its my girlfriends car and she doesnt like using them its no big problem

am i correct in thinking twice a year i will have to connect the old radio to change the clock to be the correct time or is there a simple workaround for this?
