Go back to Citroen C1 1.0 12v

Parrot carkit

I had a Parrot CK3200 lying around which I wanted to fit to the C1. Inspired by the standard Toyota carkit, I decided to place the display of the carkit above the rearview mirror. Therefore I had to start out making a bracket for the display unit.

img

Using some bits of aluminium and some chemical metal I made this bracket.

img

img

Using some velcro I attached the display to the bracket.

img

img

So with some high strenght adhesivetape I put the bracket on the window.

img

As you can see in the picture, the wire is connected to the bottom of the display, which is in front of the mirror. So I want to move that to the back of the unit. So remove the back of the unit.

img

img

Put a piece of tape on there and drill a hole for the wire.

img

img

Cut the excess cable shielding away, so it will clear the print inside the caseing.

img

Put the cable through the hole and glue in place, reassemble and you're done.

img

To put the microphone in place, I removed the light and pulled the wire through.

img

img

Put the microphone next to the light and put the light back.

img

Then you have to remove the A pilar cover. This can be tricky. Best thing to do (for me anyway), is to push the cover into the car, pushing from the outside (where the rubbers are for the door). That seemed to work ok.

img

img

Tiewrapped both the microphone and the display cable together and put them under the ceiling cover.

img

img

The cable can now go into the dashboard where the other cable in the A pilar goes down. In the dashboard there is a little panel you can open where you can try and grab the cable from the a pilar and pull it through.

img

img

Open up the radio compartment by removing the ventilation speed knob, the screw that it hides and pull the panel carefully towards you.

img

img

Pull to cable from the glovebox to the radio compartment and connect everything up.

img

img

Tiewrap the cable in place in the a pilar and put the cover back.

img

img

Close everything up and the carkit is operational. Works like a charm :)
