Hi all.
Can I change over my stock REF radio with a RAK (6CDw/tape) in my 2007 PT Cruiser Convertible ? The RAK unit is a bit longer and I am not sure about the room behind the console. Has anyone done this, or have a PT that had the RAK in it already? I would like to know before buying one off Ebay. Thanks. Bob

I haven't heard or seen any that have
Its possible, Not sure on how much modification is needed or if the wiring, even with adapters has whats needed for it too work correctly
There is plenty of room behind the old radio
I have seen aftermarket upgrades but not upgrades with other Chrysler units
If you go ahead with it then posting what you had to deal with may help others in the future

Good luck

Thanks i2s2bme for the reply...
The RAK 6CD stacker with Tape is a Chrysler unit that looks identical to the REF, but as I mentioned it looks a bit longer because of the fan unit to keep it cool. The 300's used it . If you feel there is a lot of room behind the stock CD radio REF then I'll do a buy on Ebay. and see how we go. Have to get it from the USA though....none here.....

Also those purchased from the states are usually opposite to ours as well
Controls are the other way around?
No idea what difference that makes
Probably a lot cheaper from the states anyway
Just prefer my aussie stations and music







Just kidding :p
