That's the TV tuner module not the radio. The radio is the other box on the right hand side of the spare wheel well. They can be had from ebay or breakers, but bear in mind that the TV bit won't work since digital changeover

Many thanks for that Duncan, not too bothered about tv as long as my sat nav, radio and cd autochanger can display once more.

I am pretty sure that the Sat Nav will work without the TV tuner as it has its own output stage.
Duncan will put us right soon. :)

I still love this marque and I will still be around, preferred selling to breaking, as a great runner and performer"

John, you are right as far as I know. But you need to bridge out the connections and I cant honestly tell you for sure, how.

Hi Yorks Tommy,

Are you still searching for that TV module? I have one which I recently removed from my 75 as I replaced it with a newer, hybrid BMW module to get digital TV.
Just let me know...

Iirc If you connect the blue tv lead direct into the sat nav unit this bypasses the tv unit. I have seen a specific lead for this for sale but only once.
