They should be fantastic ...

... for snapping off, leaving a piece of HSS stuck in the thing you were trying to 'Eazi-out' ...
... which you now can't drill out, because it's as hard as your drill bit ... ;)  :y
Possibly, but considering the hag in removing a knackered rusty screw and having a possible rainy day answer in your Tool Box for 75 pence, works for me.  ;)

Your welcome, as for the cables fitted being live or not, after around 2001 they started fitting most Looms in full, whether they were used or not.  ;)

Also just to confirm your HU Radio Coax cable will be the thicker of the three cables, possibly Grey on Colour.  :y

Sorry may not be making it clear

The existing blue connector in the footwell is a non standard aerial connector. I now have a standard male aerial connector which goes to the new external aerial.

I don't want to damage the existing coax or connectors as I may not get better reception with the new aerial so I want to get another blue connector and keep a short length of existing wiring from it and then splice a standard female connector to it which will connect with the external aerial.

I will then have two coax cables with ends that will connect into the existing blue connector and can choose which one works best

Hope this make sense. As I said I have no idea if it will work just looking for the easiest solution that doesn't involve damaging something that currently works in the hope of getting something better
See youve used that word Splice again, what year is the Car, from memory the Blue connector is for the GSM and SatNav, the Radio is on a Grey connector  :-\ having said that think they may have combined all three into a multi Three way one on the late Face Lifts, but I cant remember the colour.  :-\

End of the Day it will be a type of Connector inside a Farkra Housing Plug, so all you need to do is pull the Connector from the Housing then get a one piece adapter to suit whats there and whats on your Aftermarket Aerial so no splicing involed and can be put back to normal if needed.  :y

Hmm, yea Im not convinced either, based on how many NCDC become bricks due to Processor issues, never heard of one, worst I heard is a couple losing the ROM Chip symptoms of that show up as FM Radio faults, my money would be on the upper Laser.  :-\

As TB says if youve could the Code, a lot more options are available to you, seem to remember you have GSM Telematics fitted to it as well.

Based purely on the little information given, I'd scrap the car and start shopping.
Start Shopping only picked up about a week ago,  :(, Cambelt was on my list, was for a Family Member, really clean tidy, 1.6 SXi, working LPG etc, no dents, loads of work done by previous Owner on Exhaust, Tyres, Cooling, Cats, Brakes and Front End underneath, it would drive over a Sleeping Policemen and you could hear ..... nothing.

Oh well, some you win and all that, just had a quick price up, and even with a second hand head and then Skimming its still looking at around 300 just in Parts alone.   :-\

As for Engine swap, defeats the working fitted LPG side of it.

Bugger,  >:(, it did make a loud crack before the spin dryer type no compression on a atempted restart.  :(

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Re: Siemens NCDC screen problem
« on: 15 August 2018, 19:25:04 »
Guy is called Gerners   lasertrader.de     and they offer a full service on most NCDC repairs...unfortunately they could fix mine as the main processor is dead so no nav but all else works .

Their service is quick and reliable ...you send item to them and almost the same day they email back with the cost..fixed in another day and then posted back :y

The Processor is in the main HU no, what did you get on the CID?, was it just a Black Screen where the Maps should be?

I pay 35 to my Local Garage, they wont fail something for the sake of it as they are always banged out with too much work anyway, last time I ended up offering them 20 notes so I could do the work myself on their Ramps for an hour or so when there Mechanic had a day off. then the MOT Guy just looked at it and printed the MOT  ;) :y

Could be the ribbon cable to the LCD Panel or it could be the LCD Panel itself is on its way out.

If your up for the job repair yourself, or from memory theres a Ebay Item (in Germany I think) who offer repairs on the CID.

In the ideal world Ron you should be using a IMAP Account (most are now including Hotmail) then use a PC App like MS Outlook, Thunderbird etc (I personally use Thunderbird) to use and sync your Email on your PC, that way youve got a PC Back Up of your Emails if the Server goes down, lose the Account or they decide they dont wont to play anymore, and youve also got a Server Back Up should your PC Fall over etc.  ;)

As an extra precaution I also set up a 2nd (only known to me) third party imap Server account which I use purely (in the Cloud) to automatically back up my first and Main Email Accounts, should either of the above suddenly happen, that way Im well and truly covered, I set this up years ago and I have old emial accounts from 25 years ago all backed up in the Cloud by using free and independent imap accounts.  :y

The Hands Free Speaker is probably at the back of the phone, so external Cover?, something blocking it, got wet and the speaker is duff or or got sticky wet and has dried up of the speaker is fukced.

Or, in settings (somewhere) phone thinks its using Bluetooth or Headphones when you speak the speaker on.
