Hey :-)

I have removed the factory cassette/tuner deck from an AU1 and have been left with absolutely no idea how to install a single din aftermarket CD/tuner deck. The factory deck appears to have no mounting brackets, instead it has a long screw coated in rubber which inserts into a hole in the rear of the centre console.

Does anyone have any idea what I should do?

Please refer to the attached photos for further clarification.

Regards



Anthony

post a pic of the plastic trim you took off to access the back please. you should be able to attach a mounting bracket to it.

I purchased the head unit used from an eBay seller.

The head unit does not come with a sleeve/cradle.
