My question is more about what do I actually need to replace, rather than what part is suitable for my car - i.e. do I need to replace every gasket, or just a certain few, and if so, which few.

I have a JVC AVX810 unit with bluetooth phone support, and I would like to be able to use the steering wheel buttons to control my phone.
