    Default H/U Help

    I want to fit a single din dvd player with motorized screen into my vectra C. Obviously i am going to need a single din facia adapter but once this is on how easy is it to fit the cage for the new unit? I have not taken the standard radio out yet, but assuming it is a similar design to other cars I have seen wont the cage fall down?

    Does anyone have any comments or pictures that might help me when I come to do this?

    Cheers

    Dan.

    I can see where you're coming from, but the cages supplied are suprisingly stiff considering they're only held in on the front edge.

    Should be fine, they're designed for the job after all...

    as your notice from the picture, the cage isnt just held in at the front its screwed in. Once this screw is removed its pretty easy to pull out, to be honest i had more of a job to get it back in afterwards.

    I think he's asking about changing the double din to single din. You need the fasia adaptor from vauxhall, it contains the double to single adaptor and wiring harness I think. Once fitted you will only be able to install a single din radio.

    The above picture is the "older" non-Canbus type of radio cage... the newer Canbus ones are simpler in so far as the wiring goes straight to the radio, not via a cage.

    Don't forget your aerial adapter for your new stereo install... and that you won't be using the top plug of those shown in the above photo (the display & steering wheel controls).
