Hi all,

I am looking to replace the oem fujitsu in my 95 LS with a JVC unit with HD and bluetooth.

I just pulled radio from parts car as a practice run. I have an ISO adapter cable.

It Looks like I have two options. Bypass Amp and go direct from head unit to harness with the iso cable. Alternatively, use the existing amp.

The existing amp uses a din connector. Most aftermarket head units, including the jvc, use rca connectors. Does anyone know of an RCA to din converter cable that is readily available?

One other observation. I followed the procedure in the manual, pulled back center console, etc. After doing all that, I realized that the Fujitsu was just mounted in a cage like most single din radios. While not a lot of cable room. It seems I could have just popped it out with the proper radio release tool. Nothing was bolted in the back. Could be it was removed previously, maybe Alfa simplified in later years?

You are probably right. The 91-93 model was a Chrysler look alike model and was really bolted in back and had a V-wedge on left side too so without dynamite it was a biutch to steal.

Just installed the new JVC. Piece of cake!

On the 95 the original radio just slides out of a standard din cage. Did need to remove right side carpet panel to get to wires.

Bought a jvc to ISA connector on eBay. This does bypass the underseat amp but that is fine with me. It is plug and play.
