    I have OEM HU to my 90 HP. 2 problems I am facing.

    1) When I rotate V C knob, instead of increase in volume it falls down.
    I mean if volume is at 9, it jumps down to 6,5 or 4.
    If I rotate knob steadily volume goes up. If I raise with little bit urgency it goes down.

    2) Stored FM station automatically delete while HU is ON.
    & HU again starts to make autosearch.

    Point 1 is faced by almost every Punto/Linea owner I know of. Shows the quality of the Delphi HU. I guess the blaupunkts were better.

    Yes I am also facing this issue from the day one and SC guys still resolving this problem, after registering the complain in each scheduled service. Now I rely on steering mounted audio control.

    Add me to the list. Sometimes when i try and reduce the volume via the knob in a hurried manner, the volume falls down to 0. :D

    Cheers.

    1) Even I have this volume knob problem and I tell people that its a feature to put the volume to 0 :D

    2) change the AF switching to OFF. The shortcut key to do it is the unnamed button on the bottom right corner of the HU.
