Hey guys,

Having trouble finding a straightforward answer to this, so hoping it's easy for someone to answer quick here. Also American, so Peugeot is totally new to me.

Just picked up an '02 106 1.1 Look in decent shape w/ 69k miles. Fun little car (except for the three pedals being absurdly close to one another), and looks good after a heavy-duty cleaning. I'd like to replace the stock stereo (picture attached) with a simple aftermarket unit (something £40 or less; might buy used on eBay) that will allow me to plug in my phone for music.

I bought the Peugeot stereo removal tools for 99p on eBay. If I pop those in and remove the stock stereo, can I just plug in an aftermarket unit (it'll probably be Pioneer, Kenwood, Alpine, or Sony) using the existing wiring, and be good to go? Or do I need to buy a fascia, wiring adapter, etc.? Do I need to do anything with the battery before I remove and replace the stereo? Anything else I should know?

Thanks in advance!

You will need an adapter cable to connect to the loom. The switched live for the head unit will likely be wired in the adapter so it connects with a BSI controlled live rather than the ignition switched live. This will result in the stereo staying on for a minute or so when you take the keys until the BSI goes into standby mode out but 'should' go offl when you lock the doors. There is usually an ignition switched live right next to the BSI switched live so swapping the wire over in the adpter cable will result in ot switching off with the ignition off but will allow you to use the radio without the engine running with the key in the accesory position.

If you want to keep the remote function then you need a head unit that is remote compatible and another adapter cable. You will lose the radio information on the display.
