There will only be a sub there if it has the premium sound installed, which wasn't standard on Fairmonts. Easy way to tell is look in the boot, can you see three or two speakers in the parcel shelf?

Really? I could have sworn he said it was the whole package... (pity he removed everything after it sold so I can't go back and check)

As I mentioned in the thread, I'd probably have bought it if it wouldn't take a buttload of fiddling around to make it all work in the wagon :(
