CD Changer Install 1998 996 C2 - Help

Recommended Posts


Does anybody know if 996s were fitted with Cd Changer connection cables in the front luggage compartment even if the car was supplied new without a Cd Changer ???

I've looked for the cable ends in the luggage compartment but I can't find them !!!

If no cable was supplied where can I buy one (preferably in the UK) to connect Becker Silverstone 2660 Changer to the head unit.

Any help/advice would be much appreciated ???

Any links to DIY changer install info would also be helpful.

No, not unless the car came with the CD-Changer Option. The cable harness is very easy to add.

You need to find find a UK Becker dealer. There is a company in the US (Continental Imports) that sells a kit that includes the changer (Becker 2660) , wiring harness, and mounting bracket for about $430 (US). The bracket and wiring harness have Porsche part numbers but some Becker dealer may carry them also. Again, I suggest starting with a Becker dealer search Becker Europe website.

Installation takes about an hour and just requires routing the harness and connecting both ends. Once you get the parts ask again and Jeff or I will did up some pics.

On the UK Boxster board from time to time someone will say the cable is there even if you do not have the changer, and sometimes it is not. There is or was a "prep" option in the UK that some cars have. If you are looking in the right place and cannot find it then it looks like you do not have this prep option. You can ask for further info on the UK board and perhaps there is an option code you can check. In the US we never have the cable unless the car was ordered with the changer.

If you buy the Becker Silversone 2660 changer the cable comes in the box. You can buy the cable as a separate item from Becker or Porsche, but according to the UK board there are very few Becker dealers in the UK. Jeff
