Hi folks, been trawling about on autotrader and seen the odd corsa d with what appears to be a lead for something hanging from bottom of dash glovebox side near gear stick, and it only seems to be on ones with cd30 MP3’s and big gid, firstly what’s it for and second can it be retrofitted?

Almost like it’s a separate aux input and usb hanging down, only seen the odd one though and it kinda between the obd port and the side just near left hand cup holder, didn’t know if anyone had one in theirs or have swapped it or it’s for a aftermarket sat nav or something?

Not an after market handsfree system is it? We had one on the last Corsa In the same place .

With it being that low down I can’t see it being sat nav or owt like that as it’s where it is, would’ve thought sat nav would be up in line of sight.

this is what I’m on about as being the dangly thing near glovebox, can anyone shed some light on what it is and if it can be retro fitted?

Looks like a usb header that was once upon a time hooked into the back of a aftermarket head unit.

I’ve wired it the same on mine

Just I’ve seen it on a few corsa’s so it’s almost as if it’s a vauxhall had it on the options list as they’re all in the same place like they were supposed to be there. Would’ve thought if it was a aftermarket thing they’d be in random spots all over the dash and different designs, with the ones I’ve seen all being there and those connectors it’s as if they were put there by vx for something usb? I’ve not seen many corsas with the aux input and a usb in the Centre cup holders either

If it was an official OEM USB system, I doubt they'd put the wiring to the cup holder through the cut-out since the OBD placement is already far back to make it difficult to use and the wiring would have the potential to cover the port.

I agree looking into it further they replaced the aux port with a usb and aux port .
