Default Help please with steering wheel control interface

I want to change my CD/Radio of DAB+ CD Radio and keep my steering wheel controls.
My understanding is I will need a new interface between the radio and steering wheel controls.
I have a Siemens/VDO CD413 currently.
Can you tell me details of what interface I would need between a new radio and my steering wheel controls please.

Ringing around is proving quite difficult to track down an interface.

thanks

Cheers Ronnie. Strange as it may seem I cant find a web site for Autoleads, I can find lots of companies selling Autoleads stuff.
Have you a link to their web site please?

magic thank you, connects2 looks like a place I have spoken too, not sure. They are, if they are the same place, trade and sent me to Top Vehicle Tech, their kit is £49.99 but sold out and due date is February 2024.

I have now spoken to someone in London who wants a picture of the back of my current radio so he can see the
sockets, he will then be able to tell me if he can help as he shows two types of interface.

Removing the radio is a job for tomorrow.

I no longer have a Rover, but have some stuff left, if you're interested. Pictures below of a Connects2 kit and universal patch lead. Please note (a) I had various stereos fitted to the Rover over 12-13 years of ownership, and I can't remember what this kit was for; (b) although it claims to be a universal kit, I can't guarantee you can make it work with yours.


But if you want to have a go, £20 delivered



The kit (not sure if the little loom on the left is part of it)


The connectors

Installation guide

Universal patch lead


Let me know if you're interested (or anybody else who reads this)

Mate, that is very good of you. Let me sort out a radio and we can go from there if that is ok. I'm going to try and remove my radio tomorrow to take pictures of the plugs and sockets.
