After Market Stereo...helppp!

Recommended Posts

So I ordered an after market stereo, but I have two issues!

1- the connections dont fit the new one

2- the stereo is too small!

I think a wiring loop is what I need and a cage.. I'm not sure though!

Would this do the jobs I need? Here are some pictures!

Hi. The reason you are having these problems are you need to buy a couple of extra things. For the cables you need to buy a hiring harness for your car which is usually about £10-£20. you will get 1 from your local car shop eg Halfords etc. The other thing you need to make the stereo fit is a facia adaptor which you will get from the same shop. They are usually £10-£20 aswell

Hi thanks, yeah if you look at the link to the ebay item it seems to have a wiring harness, cage and fascia- so with it I guess it would all fit?

Hi Stuart, need your help!

The cage has 2 foam pad things, some strange metal things and some more metal things with some screws!

How do I set it up?

Cheers, here's some pics:

Would like to know too where these pads go and where you should screw the cage into, going to fit a double din stereo in my prefacelift soon!

The pads are just for cushioning, the screws go on the stereo like in the video.

Fed up of it already, had it working in my hands, gone to put it in and now its not working- maybe a fuse!

Its got loads of wires at the back and I can't fit it in properly.
