In answer to my own question, JLR classic state their stereo won’t fit a P38, because a P38 is double din and their stereo is single din and only works on negatively earthed vehicles. I’m fairly sure the original stereo I’ve got is single din, just a radio / cassette player but I gave them the VIN so assume they know best. Rolling Eyes

Dave Hodgett's entered the EKA via the diagnostic software and hey presto all good. I'm a bit wary about locking her up again, but it was good to hear her burst into life again! She will go back next week to have the central locking gremlins fixed and a few other niggles sorted out.

It took me a while longer than planned to get her back to 4x4 Development and happily in the interim she didn't misbehave. She is still with Dave and he has been trying to get to the bottom of the random locking / unlocking. He's stripped and cleaned all of the plugs which were quite corroded, and he thought that had fixed it but then just this afternoon she decided to lock up. Most annoying! He's also sorting the cruise control which needs replacement pipes for the vacuum system. LR no longer supply them, but its pretty common hose so Ebay to the rescue. I also sourced a brass t-piece to replace the rather fragile plastic one.

All being well I'll pick her up next week Thumbs Up

I would argue Land Rover are certainly wrong. P38 is single din not double. For sure. RE the negative earth thing, I have no idea about that though but the genuine P38 stereos both Clarion and HK are single din. Smile 2003 VW Golf V6 4motion

They actually came back to me re the stereo to confirm it is single DIN, so we aren’t going mad. They still state that a P38 can’t take the infotainment system because the surround is too wide and they aren’t prepared to make one to match. That isn’t a great surprise as I imagine there isn’t much demand, but I’d have thought someone with a 3D printer and a bit of an idea could crack it.

In other Bordeaux related news, the central locking gremlins have been sorted out- all down to badly corroded connectors. She has been hooked up to a test bench all weekend and hasn’t cycled the locking once!! She’s also had an oil and filter change and the cruise control hose and t piece replaced so that now works fine. Small steps to getting her right. Body work next but funds are in short supply at the moment.

Happy days! There are posts on t'interweb where people have fitted a tablet in place of the sat nav screen and built their own so to speak. Some of them look pretty impressive. 2003 VW Golf V6 4motion
