Default Fitting a Becker 10cd changer into a 924S

Hello all

I have a Becker Indiannapolis 7920 in my 1988 924S which works fine and recently bought a Becker Silverstone 10 cd changer with long wires to connect to the head unit. Any advice/tips as to where to install the cd changer and any advice for installation ? I was thinking in the boot areas in the left side ( my car is right had drive ) in the hidden recess .....

Those recesses aren't sealed. Road grime, dirt, moisture and crap of all kind can find it's way in.

SNB13 is right; look inside the bottom of those cubbies and you will see all kinds of wet dirt!

If you don't carry rear seat passengers, mount the changer vertically on the floor right behind the driver's seat. You can cover it with a flap of black cloth or leather to keep prying eyes away.

The only other reasonable option is to put the changer in the glove box, if it fits. Lots of cars have had it done that way.

Doesnt fit in the glovebox and i use it to store some stuff i want to have handy...

I think my only option is to put in in one of the rear hidden areas , probably the left side and secure it with the becker brackets I have for the CD changer . Moisture or no moisture etc i will have to put it there. I dont think i have any water leaks into the car as the drains are all working and the seals are good in the boot and in the closing pins etc . Hopefully it will be ok, i cant think of any other decwent place to a put a 10cd changer in !!! Becker greece will install it

The cd changer unit was installed at OPC today at the rear recess area , above the bottom , used a combination of strong velcro and foam to secure it ( didnt want to use screws ) and its working fine . it sits 4 cm above the bottom so not likely to have any issues from any water/ dirt though i dont drive the car often in heavy rain anyways and this area is cleaned and the drain is not blocked ( has a small t plug that is easy to block though )
