None main dealer parts are for the later 1998 onwards cars fitted with larger front discs. So useless for my car.
The main dealer described...
I bought an aux plug to fit in the rear of my audio 20 for an aux input... but for 1 it doesnt fit as the grooves on the plug dont line up with the radio input , but i can take the plug apart leaving a small square plug that i can push on either way up...hence 6 and 12 or the opposite side.
