Default More help required No Cd player??

Hi having just returned to the Forum I'm being forced to post a few questions for which I apologise, but with this one, if I cant find an answer my missus will do her nut!!

My "new" buy a 2003 2.0 CDTI tourer,is great in some respects but in other areas, compared to past models I've owned, seems to be lacking.

In this case it appears it doesn't have a CD player!!! It is fitted with Symphony radio, with buttons clearly marked CD/Tape.....the tape player is in position but no CD player,,,,can I fit a glove box cassette version, and if so how do I connect to back of radio...is It a dockyard job? Is there a socket in place to accept a CD input plug on the back of the radio, is the back of the radio readily accessible? Thanks again..

The cd changer isn't in a side cubby in the boot is it? Does anything change on the display when you press the cd button?

No my friend, I used to have one Rover with it in the boot and another with it In the glove box. There is a glove box version on EBay which I am chasing. The selector is marked tape/CD but on pressing nothing happens,Im certain if I put a tape in it would operate, but without a CD player there is no feedback from the CD button.
As I understand it ,the symphony radio is only held in with a piece of trim and four screws, I have the removal tools for the radio ,just hope it has the fittings for a CD player!!! Haven't told the wife yet...Chicken!

Davy You are a man after my own heart!!That is/was very decent of you.Unfortunately purchase now made, and although I know I can go through the torturous route of a return, I don't like breaking a contract..but once again that was very kind of you thanks. All the best Derek

When you remove the Symphony, see if there are cables in a blue mini ISO connector (along with a green and yellow one) plugged in the back. That is the connector for the CD changer, if it is there, the other end must be somewhere..... usually under the glove box.

You Sir are a mind reader as that was about to be my next topic. The CD player I have purchased comes complete with compatible Symphony radio head I have tools etc and code for removal of present and fitting of new.
However on looking all over my glove box I can not find any cables or access holes to rear of radio unit, so on removal of old, do I just drill a hole through the glove box bulkhead etc to attach cables to compatible unit?

This is the back of the Symphony.

If you remove the glove box, it will be easier to 'feed' the cable through. There should be the holes in it, maybe covered by the lining.
