2014 Defender 110 Puma 2.2 SW Keswick Green
Officially Confused for Alpine Factory Head Unit Swap

Well, my 2014 110SW came with Alpine CDE130R fitted. Never used the CD player but finally fed up with no Blue Tooth, so found a cheap Alpine alternative, thinking it would be a simple swap. Well, the rear harness' do not match. In fact it appears the one fitted from Landy has two more wires as well. Glad I double checked before I started snipping things. The replacement is the UTE 73BT, if that matters. The factory harness is wrapped in black felt tape of some sort and it just dissapears behind the dash, cannot tell if there is another plug someplace?

So, Im not sure where to go from here. I then saw in my reading something like this. https://www.mudstuff.co.uk/products/audio-...pters.html

Would that help me?

I dont want to do anything fancy here, just interested in the BlueTooth upgrade really. I have put some pics below. The rear of the landy radio is the one with the Blue 15A fuse on the back. Couple pics of the new harness too.

You might want to dig around see if you can find a more chunky plug that connects to that further back. That looks like a proprietary plug but looks smaller than the Defender one that would be in a 2014 loom. If you can find the larger connector, you’ll need a Puma > ISO connector (like on the Mud link you posted). Does the other end of the new stereo cables have two sockets (maybe one red, one black) on one end? https://instagram.com/bentheoandrews

How far back would that larger plug be? as far as I can reach through the opening? The new alpine has a similar plug to what you see, just a tad smaller but same shape. 2 less wires as I counted.

In that link it's the 'Puma pin' version you want. Thumbs Up Watts ÷ Volts = Amps.
Amps X Volts = Watts

This is what I had in my dash. I assumed the looms were pretty standard on the later Defenders but may have been different for ones specced with the Alpine head unit. https://instagram.com/bentheoandrews

Arjuna 2012 LR changed away from DIN ISO.

In the photo above the grey plug is the 2012 on LR loom plug which you need and adaptor for to transform to DIN ISO male which that red plug is. (Various colours they come in.)

On mine pre 2012, it has male DIN ISO plugs as standard with no adaptor looms needed at all

So on mine it goes, male HU rear > female DIN ISO > male DIN ISO LR loom.

On a 2012> it'd be male HU rear, female DIN ISO > male DIN ISO adaptor > to LR grey plug / loom.

Male DIN ISO plugs are 1x primary power and 1x speaker connections. Female DIN ISO is a single square block connector. Watts ÷ Volts = Amps.
Amps X Volts = Watts
