car is 98 `b` 12v , `breeze` model. 3dr.
has eps but no e/w c/l.

1. whats the best way to go about fitting central locking to this ? (just the doors, not bothered about boot plus i would need to buy the c/l type boot lock)...
car has 11 (if i remember correclty) pins in loom going to drivers door, the fuse contacts and some wiring in the fuse box are there for central locking as well but its only got two pins in the passenger door. ive not taken the door trims off but is there any wire in there already on this model ? if not am i better getting s/h vaux stuff or an aftermarket kit ?

2. how easy is it to change the aerial cable ? the plug on mines breaking up looks like the things part of the loom , and its a bit short on space behind the dash , so i was thinking of just buying a extension aerial cable, cutting one end of and joining it to the original cable , prob behind the glove box where theres a bit more space ?

3. my car only has front speakers looking at the car loom theres all four connected to the stereo and i think they are already fitted ? if so where to , do they stop behind the glove box or are they already run down the car and hidden in the rear door trim ?



thanx in advance.

answer to question2, its not a good idea to cut aerial cable and re-join it, someone did it on my GSI before i bought it, i havnt had a radio for 3 years, ya have to replace the cable all the way from the headlining back to the head unit

sorry m8, gotta disagree with u on that one, my old car, a '96 corsa merit didnt have rear speakers. it came with the CAR100 standard radio that only supports two speakers. Think the CAR200 was the same. the wires are already there for the speakers, they are connected to the plug that goes in to the headunit, but the wires are fairly hard to find in the back. u need to take off the two pastic rear light blub replacement covers in the boot and look for the wires that run in on the passenger side and the wires that go under the boot lip plastic on the drivers side.. there will be two wires (think brown and white off the top of my head) with plastic clips on the end that are designed for vauxhall speakers, snip these and put on spades for kenwood or what ever u are installing. u might initially struggle to find the wires as they are insulation taped to the main wiring. hope this helps!

ur right mate not ALL corsa's came with rear speakers, but its not hard to install them really. as long as the hu has the right connections its all a matter of wiring them in and finding where u wannt put the rears.. i.e. parcel shelf or in the small enclosures where ya will probaly only fit small coaxials or summink of that kind

dunno, i wired in my kenwood 7*10s and the standard head unit sent no singal to the them. stuck in my kenny headunit and they were pretty bloody good! yeh merit had sod all quippy, the enclosure for rear speakers was there, but none were installed and we had the car from new, ah well. gave that car to my sister and bought a brand new 1.4 sxi, so no worries about any of that now

erm help

cant find any spare wires at the rear, looking throught the trim covers, i can see 8 wires to the n/s light unit, 8 across the boot to the o/s light unit, none under the boot trim

four wires running through a multi plug then straight up (1 thick black , 1 thick brown , 1 thin brown with white stripe and 1 thin blue ) rear wiper maybe ?

and three more running up together with the aerial lead, two of which go to the boot light.

do i need to look further forward ? or dont i have any ?

its a three door mate.

yes, factory speaker grilles are there in the parcel shelf trim thing already ...

cant see any wiring at the back though ...

had a quick look up front behind the glovebox and could just about make out the wiring from the stereo plug to this point , so its fitted somewhere ... im beginning to wonder if it stops behind the rear panel on mine though...

any more ideas or should i pull off the side trim in the boot and / or the trim in the rear to see ?

question 2 you may nee a new ariel but if you get a cheap ariel from halford and fit it somwhere hidden behind a panel or summit.

question 1
i got cental locking fitted with my alarm so i had remote locking its a fiddly job best left to someone who gets paid to do it

just took trim out of side of boot , untaped wiring ,couldnt find any spare wiring for speakers, worked back towards front of car and ended up taking trim out of passenger footwell, found two large plugs linking front half of wiring loom to rear half.

theres no wiring from these plugs any further back for the rear speakers! (took the top of the plugs to be sure) so my car doesnt have any rear speaker wiring further fitted beyond the passenger footwell,

ah, well...
