Reinstalling my original Clarion Radio Questions

All,

I'm trying to reinstall the original Clarion Radio in my 1986 Alfa Spider and it is confusing.

I removed a much newer radio that a store installed. The Workshop Manual Wiring Diagram doesn't go in enough detail (doesn't indicate all the wires) and some of the connectors don't match up so I have questions.

Please see attached photo for reference to questions.

Any Help is much appreciated!
Thanks!
Jay

1.This Blue wire is factory-labeled Green. Did I hook it up correctly? If not where does it connect?

2.Where does this Green wire connect?

3.Where does this Gray wire connect? (end is pointed to the right in photo)

4.Where does this black ground wire connect?

5.Where this black box attach inside dash?

6.Where does this Gray wire connect?

7.Where does this Blue wire connect?

Do you see anything else that needs to be corrected?

Jay,

I actually sold car audio equipment back in those days.

Wiring was very often unique to the mfg, sometimes even the model.

If you still have the manual, a proper wiring diagram should be contained within.

If not, google the model #and see if there is a manual available for download. Once you know what wire is what on the head unit, the battle is more than half over.

Hope this helps-M5

The Clarion 6350 user manual has a wiring diagram in it. If you'd like a copy, please PM me your email address.

Does anyone have a PDF of the Clarion Radio Model 6349 User Manual you could send me? I need the wiring page in the back.
Thanks,
Jay

Have you tried contacting the company? It appears to be still in business.

That's a good idea, if and when I locate a Model 6349 manual. I keep hoping one of the member will notify me they have one. The wiring is different than the Model 6350... more wires that don't connect via the wiring harness.
