Bought a new DVD as the Rosen one was playing up.
Thought Id post a few piccys how I did it. Pretty easy really.
 
Old Rosen DVD removed but mounting plate left in place.
Here is the new DVD mounting plate, I measured it up against the rosen unit to find the screw holes, then drilled it in 4 places.

fitted the mounting plate to the old rosen mounting to check my measurements were correct!
 
Then removed the plate and wired in the Red/Yellow and Black wires. (I didnt connect the blue as the blue in the rosen loom is 12volt and the new dvd needs earth for the dome lights, the dome lights work via the switch on the new DVD anyway) The green wire for the FM modulator I ran as far forward inside the roof lining as I could reach. I insulated all connectors with tape to avoid any short circuits when all fitted, then refitted the plate with the grommet in place.
 
Finally fitted the DVD with the 6 screws and powered up!

yes, very impressed with it, includes headphones and games controller all for £84, bargin me thinks.
 
Just trying to get rid of the 'mark' in the roof lining from the old unit, it is gradually going.
 
I was going to connect an old xbox, but I'm thinking of maybe getting a DVD/satnav for the front.
pity its not a double din :(
 
Found one that includes digital tv aswell as bluetooth phone for £268! that ship from the EU so no customs charges
Its a chinese one, unbranded, so not sure at the min... mmmm

Sounds like it may just be a coincidence. What you've done cannot affect the central locking

Nice tidy job - Thanks for going to the trouble of posting the pictures - a nice 'How To'. The indents from the old will disappear over time as the roof liner material reforms back to original shape. Don't rub it too much as you will cause it to wear.

DEFINITELY a bargain at £84.  Where can I get one?  My Rosen unit won't play sound through the radio and the picture is pants too.
