    Hi there,

    I have all the parts for a Nokia car kit(incl.a FSS dual band
    antenna-interior window mount) to suit one of the following mobiles;
    5110, 6110, 6150, 6210, 6310i, 7110. I'd like to install it into my
    Opel/Vauxhall-Corsa(93).

    Can anyone advise me on how best to do this? Can it be connected to
    the main speakers in the car or do we have to use the speaker that
    comes in the box?

    I'd appreciate if someone sent me some info on how to connect up all
    the coloured wires and best place to mount the mic, antenna, speaker
    and HFU-2 box.

    Thanks in advance,
    Clive

    Sounds like the Car-k91 - I've fitted on in my Mercedes 230 - easy!

    Use the speaker supplied - it will fit neatly in somewhere - like
    behind your stereo in the dashboard, or under the passenger seat...
    etc etc..

    Do You know where I connect these cables to? Is it to the cables that
    go into the stereo or where??

    I have installed the Mic and antenna easily enough through the
    interior-done very neatly I have to admit! My big problem is knowing
    which wire slice and dice to join the black and the red cables to?
    There is a large loom of wires that has plenty of black and red wires
    in it running under the shelf in my Corsa-which to cut into?! I dont
    have a cigerette lighter in the car either.

    Please advise..!

    Thanks
    Clive

    What, no lighter socket at all..? I find that hard to believe, there must
    be one somewhere..? How old is your car..? A friend was loaned a new Corsa
    a few weeks ago when his car was in for repairs, and he gave me a lift in
    it a couple of times, I remember being very impressed, but not being a
    heavy smoker (and never in a car) I didn't notice where the socket might
    have been. I had a car some years ago where the socket was inside the
    ashtray, if you're not a smoker maybe you haven't looked in there..?! Just
    a silly thought, but it's possible maybe..?

    Have you spoken to your local dealer..? I have found that the head service
    engineer can be a useful contact..!

    If all else fails, try and find a route for the loom through the bulkhead
    to the engine compartment and run wires directly back to the battery.

    If its any help to you, buy a Haynes manual for your car (or lend one from
    the library - cheaper!) as these have pretty good wiring diagrams within.
    Look for the wiring diagram that details the wiring for the radio, as
    this'll have a permanent live (to maintain the radio's memory) and a
    switched live off the ignition (for the radio's ignition sensing - don't
    know if you need this); you can get an earth by using any random bare peice
    of metal (usually a structural nut or something - less chance of getting the
    wrong wire), but oviously get your tester on everything to verify before
    connecting everything up. I don't know what car kit you're using, but I
    installed my CARK-112 (bluetooth) this way, as it needs the permanent live
    for its "sleeping" mode, and the ignition sensing to know when to grab the
    phone; I just used them where they came out of the fuse box and it ended up
    a neat job, you wouldn't even know there was a carkit installed save for the
    mic and the little push button. One other thing, if you can get hold of some
    wire tap-ins (also called snap-lock automotive connectors I think), it means
    you don't have to "slice and dice" your wires, they just snap on and will
    crimp your wires together, much easier!

    Hope this is useful.
