    Head Unit Help

    Hi there,

    I am installing a new head unit in my A3 and its got an direct control Ipod connecter, which is ment to go into the glove box, through the back on the headunit.

    Does anyone know how to run the wire into the back of the glove box from the head unit, or take the glove box out?

    Thanks

    Should still work as long as while unclipped you haven't turned the ignition on. otherwise you need to get plugged into vagcom/vcds and get the fault cleared.

    You could just leave the glovebox plugged in. There is just enough slack on the wires to place the glovebox on the floor.

    Might need something there just to support it from getting scratched.
