In case your dashboard aperture / mount has been changed by previous owners over the last 40 -50 years you might need, or have to make, different parts to make the radio fit properly.

In the rare case that a reliable Blaupunkt transistor radio stops working you send it back to us for immediate exchange (in case a comparable unit is in stock) or repair.
