    Default Fitting new after market stereo

    Is it at all possible to do this without an expensive fitting kit? I dont have money coming out of my ass I cant pay the £70 that somebody on ebay wants for a fitting kit just to change my stereo. Can the cage be removed? Then the sockets would freely move around and I could lower them in order to allow an after market stereo to slide the whole way back, i dont care if it isnt professional i just need it done one way or another. Personally im quite disgusted that they designed it specifically to stop you from changing the stereo, its never been a problem in any previous car and my previous cars were piles of garbage.

    How would i slot an ordinary stereo into a double din size hole? I dont have some space age sat nav dvd player supercomputer device like all you lot.
    Also how much is it likely to cost for an audio centre to fit all that crap?

    well excuse me for trying to help. whats with all the negativity.

    there is a fascia kit to enable fitment of a single din stereo if that's what you mean.its not what you said but maybe it's what you meant.

    Im just irritated because I dont really have the money for all this and i never meant any disrespect. I already have the facia panel is the double din fitting kit + the facia i have all i would need to take in with my stereo to get it fitted? I also have the wire that converts the 2 stereo connectors to 1 plug, the radio pin connector I have wont do the job by the looks of it i need something different to the ordinary little prong that sticks into the radio port. Also the stereo goes very loosely into the slot in the facia panel will it be able to be secured with that kit? Thanks for the help

    I tried to decipher your post i think your saying the aerial wont fit (adapter a few quid ) as to the head unit being LOOSE you will need a single din cage to slot betwean the facia and headunit hope this helps

    Thanks for the help I get what you are trying to say but how does the cage fit onto the facia and how i suppsoed to make it look pheasable? The slot even with the facia single din panel is still ALOT bigger then my stereo so how is the cage supposed to fit? This all seems pointlessly complicated
