hi today i pulled out my

Home appliance Audio equipment Gas Media player Multimedia


and bought a

Font Material property Gas Display device Gadget


the thing is im not 100% on how to fit the new one in to the hole

do i just force the cage Rectangle Automotive exterior Bumper Technology Metal


into the hole and jiggle it about or do i have to remove the big plastic bit to put it in properly

not used the cage at the minute just some polystyreen

what do you think

White Automotive design Plant Mode of transport Steering part


at this point i realised i need a facia surround doh

any pointers appreciated

oh one other thing the parking brake wire thing to get the dvd player working

what a pain my hands are too big to be messing between seats

ended up just randomly sticking end of wire on metal surfaces until i got a picture

found the side of stereo works just fine

You just need the fitting kit and facia and prob the remote lead so you can use the steering wheel controls. This is the exact stereo I'm looking at getting......where did you get it? There on ebay for £299.....did you beat that?

I have had this head unit fitted to my
a few months ago and its awesome, brings the standard speakers alive.

I know when mine was fitted it needed a slightly smaller plastic surround than the one it came with, as for some reason ford Double din space is smaller than normall double din....

I payed £480 for mine but this included headunit, fitting, fitting kit, facia surround and steering remote control. this was about 4months ago.

Enjoy

Glad you got it sorted. Can you put up a link where you got th facia kit and also the stereo?

I've found the stereo on ebay for £299.....just wondering if you got it for less?

Was it just a case of taking out the old one, unclip the wires......reconnect the new one and push it in?

Cheers
