Hi All and Merry Christmas , New Year etc!

My local Ferari garage tell me that they cannot repair or replace my stereo in my 456...It is imade by sony and is in 3 parts.

Also, since brand new i have had a noise from the rear right hand corner of the car....kind of like a wheezing old man. Noise happens when i go over a bump or brake....Yes i thought it was the rear shock, and so did Ferrari, but despite changing this i still get the noise....any ideas? :D

Hi essbee

Speakers are a funny thing, they can make noises at the weirdest times. Sounds like something is loose back there, a wire or something. No such thing as a radio that cant be replaced, factory or aftermarket. Go to another dealer.

Keep us posted

456 radio and rear hissing

Thanks for your post....I have tried in the UK, France and Monaco for a stereo replacement but no luck.....apparently it is a discontinued sony line.

The hissing at the rear is a gas sound and is definitely not from the radio...... after changing shocks and a gas resevoir in the rear we are still no closer to finding the problem.

Happy New Year everyone!

I had a similar problem with the stereo on my 456 GT. It worked when it wanted and I was preparing to replace it but decided to part with the car instead. The brief work I did on finding a replacement indicated that there are 3rd party systems that can be used. I think Alpine or Pioneer made one. Other option is to try Kinnie at:

to see if he has the stereo from the 456 GT he was breaking up last year.

Good luck.
