Ford in-dash mounting kit

Written By Bruce, Jefferson City MO on Thursday, October 25, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Fits OK, but could be better. Had a problem getting everything stuffed back in and then making sure the frame 'snapped' into place. This kit may be a little bit too 'universal' for the models listed.

It was a bit of a pain to push this plus the stereo and the wiring harness back into the hole.

OK product but not great

Written By drabina, NJ on Monday, September 10, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I would have to say that this dash kit is an OK product but nothing to brag about. Good if you are getting it free with the radio but if I had to pay for it, I would most likely be disappointed. The finish is pretty close to the dash in my Mercury but the fit is not. There is fairly noticeable gap between the bottom of the kit and the dash opening. Also, if the included radio trim is used, the radio has gaps around it. If you use the radio bracket, then the mounting holes in the kit are visible. Also, as other reviewer has said, I have problem snapping this kit into the dash opening. Looks like only one side is locking.
Pros:
Easy installation
Cons:
Not a good fit

Wont snap in

Written By RCinMaine, York, Maine on Wednesday, July 11, 2012
 
Works great until you try to "snap" it in place. I have a 2000 Ford Crown Vic and I cut the tabs like the instructions said, but, only 2 at a time will "lock" into place.

Not so good, 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis

Written By Dave, Chicago on Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The final fit is not quite right, It's used with the item tray at the top on this car and sticks out of the dash about 3/16 of an inch too far when fully seated. I've seen it in the dash of a ford truck, it looks nice there but it just doesn't blend in well aesthetically here, it is a good color match. Not a particularly easy fit, takes a lot of pressure to seat properly, maybe thats not a bad thing?
Pros:
Good colour match.
Cons:
Not in keeping with the aesthetics of the dash

Glad it was included with purchase

Written By Joe G., Nashville, TN on Monday, April 02, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
If I had paid for this as an add-on I would have returned it for a refund. I certainly understand that when trying to make a universal type mount some compromises will be made but this adapter is quite flimsy. The receiver fits into the adapter securely and while the adapter fits into 2-Din space in the dash, it fails to actually lock into place so it just sets there. Luckily, my dash is sloped sufficiently that it doesn't "creep". Maybe its inability to lock into place is a plus since no removal tool or instructions were included or maybe it's designed for a one time use only.
Pros:
Came with receiver
Cons:
Cheaply constructed

Doesn't Fit

This does not fit a 2001 Town car. There is duct work that gets in the way.
