Hey everyone, just a quick question. Is there a special way to put the lower part of the dash in (where the head unit sits) I can't get it to sit in far enough to be flush with the dash.

Cheers.

Lol, nah mate, not the cover itself. The whole unit that holds the head unit, it basically goes from the front of the dash to the firewall (not quite that far lol). Mine won't push in far enough to stay flush with the dash.

Cheers for the speedy reply, btw.

Well mate, TBH I don't remember if I tried it like that. I tried like 4000000 different positions... it has been a couple of weeks since the car's been at home. IDK if I'll be doing it any time soon due to a hand reconstruction.

I miss my car sooo much. Really anxious to get it back. :(
