Part Technical help

Hey guys - I need some professional advice.

I cant find this part anywhere - DH52-18C815-AC but I have found this part DH52-18C815-BC - notice the small difference between AC and BC.

The main difference is the BC unit has DAB - which i dont have in my ed4. Despite this, do you think I could do a straight swap and still connect things up? From the back they look similar. What do you think?

Hi chigo58,
unfortunately it does not work like this, this module requires the activation of the DAB function with SDD, and for this I am not even sure if the CD and FM function works.

Thanks for the reply panozzz - i am not really looking for activating DAB.

As long as I have normal radio, bluetooth and CD - all is good. Do you think that they will work as a direct swap?

I gave up asking people for help - and gave it a shot myself. Success story and here's what I can confirm:

- the part i had was from a Range (DH52-18C815-AC) - same as mine. Direct swap, no coding was necessary.
- bluetooth worked immediately after pairing with a Oneplus 7T. zero problems with music and calls.
- this video helped a bit to get me started - although my setup was simpler (see steps below)


Steps taken:
- unclip the top cover with plastic prying tools, carefully
- remove two torx screws on top
- unclip the cover under the screen and remove the two torx screws
- gently pull off the facia and turn it to one side (no need to unplug everything just be careful not to over extend)
- unscrew the bottom ac buttons (4 torx screws) and leave dangle
- unplug three connectors from radio (press the release buttons gently)
- unscrew radio tray holder (2 torx screws)
- unscrew radio from tray holder (2 screws - not torx)
- pull radio tray out and CD player and replace it
- connect connectors and follow the reverse procedure to put everything back in place

Hope this helps anyone else with a 2014 model with bluetooth problems in the CD head unit
