Default Installing Pioneer Stereo

Hi, I have installed a Pioneer AVH-2150BT, as you can hopefully see in the attachment. Ill see if I can make a more detailed post if you like, but maybe on another easier site. I'm a little bit behind on working this site.

Things You'll Need:
- Connect2 Interface to work the display - you can get at EliteElectronics in AU
- Wiring Harness to ISO, ISO to Pioneer - Again I got at EliteElectronics AU
- Of course the head unit.
- A Fascia - now I used a combination of the original head unit and the display unit bracket and an included trim piece and just epoxied them together. It's not finished and I need to get onto it, but it won't look too bad when finished. They don't make 2-DIN fascias for the 407. You can find 1-DIN Fascias more easily - or a better approach than mine would have been to make a mould and then just use filler or something. I don't recommend doing what I did because those original head units are worth a bit of money, just not in NZ.
- A 2-DIN or 1-DIN bracket. I used a universal 2-DIN one, but really there is hardly any space so it holds itself in. It's not a great solution and again they do make a 1-DIN adapter, but not a 2-DIN.
- Antenna Adapter - The ones made for Ford/Citroen/Peugeot work. Again I got from EliteElectronics.

How to (I'm just going to point out the major things - I have stuff to do today, but if you want more detailed, I can make a quick video showing how I did it):

1) Remove old head unit. You need two types of Torx keys: T10 for the first two screws - those are those small dots on the HU, later T15 for the rest and the display.

2) It's fairly obvious that you need to cut a hole to fit. It just removed most of the middle and there isn't anything too major behind it.

3) Get all the wiring and test fit the new HU. You're going to need to fiddle around a little, I pulled the wires down into the AC console and it fits pretty well. You could extend the harness and get a much better result.

4) Test the unit and put it all back together.

It's going to vary a lot on how you attack the numerous problems, but I think it looks pretty nice and I'm pretty stoked on the unit I have. Going to add new RF speakers and an Amp for them soon.

Wow - this is incredibly helpful. Thank you so much. I feel a bit out of my depth here - might have to go to Halfords. But if that fails, I will try to use all this to do it myself. Thank you so much again.

Thanks for that info!! Just a few questions, does the connects2 interface enable parking sensor display output? Climate control? Which model is it? That's the important bits!

You can also buy a holder for that little screen which goes up on the dashboard, I can get the part number if you want? Might make the install look more OEM!

It's all once piece now, and I havent quite finished it. It'll be wet sanded then painted with silver and clear to match.

The connect2 interface is so I can use the steering wheel controls for the display, so it controls the time and other display functions, but the panel below to set the climate control still works as usual.

I havent got a parking sensor in mine so can't answer that sorry.

This is the harness I have: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/PEUGEOT-...Z8f7:rk:1:pf:0

So this kit is for 2005-2007 407's.

The connect2 box is the thing on the harness and plugs into the 6/8 pin (can't remember) to 3.5" to plug into the unit, essentially it puts the controls that were on the head unit to the steering wheel controls, i guess if the parking sensor control was on there it'd work, but I'd take it with a grain of salt.

Thanks for that! On the listing it clearly says

"NOTE: This Steering Wheel Control harness is NOT compatible with the above models which feature factory installed reverse sensors."

So I guess not!
