Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have never used crutchfield before, but I will again! Wow, The kit they sent me to install a SONY stereo in my 2002 ford focus worked great. The wiring harnesses were perfect and the whole job only took me 30 mins and I took my time! This was by far the easiest car stereo install I have ever done. I will useCrutchfield again for sure..I have no idea why anyone would buy a stereo anywhere else..

Pros: It looks perfect in my dash..like it was meant to be there.

Cons: NONE...

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Item was too flimsy. I was able to get a good fit even though the front panel broke. Instructions to cut off Cougar tabs to install in Focus was not necessary.

Pros: Free with radio and made go fit.

Cons: Flimsy and instructions wrong. If I hadn't accidentally broke the bracket, I would have cutting off those Cougar tabs.

Merely Passable Dash Unit

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Dash install units have gotten really cheap in the past few years, and this one is no exception. It feels cheap, it looks cheap. I realize it's difficult to get any tech not made in China nowadays, but this one is espcecially bad. I would never install this unit in any "nice" car. I felt like I was going to break it by touching it. Even after following the directions to the letter, it still wouldn't securely fit into the DIN slot. It wobbled horribly until the head unit went in, and even then it was easy move around if I wanted to. Crutchfield has always been the go-to source for car audio, and offering dash install kits to fit any make/model is a huge bonus, but a line has to be drawn somewhere on quality. This thing is junk and it shows.

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: Cheap junk!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The product was very cheap and broke while trying to install. The plastic is weak at the joints and one snapped. There was a piece that was supposed to go with the mounting kit to remove the look of the radio "protruding" out of the car. When this piece was installed, the radio wouldn't fit. I had to end up not using it and the radio doesn't exactly fit in the car and I see some of the metal sticking out.

Pros: Snaps together well.

Cons: Cheap plastic. Not the perfect fit.

Overall the kit fit pretty well. The last part you put in is the faceplate ring(May be called something else). It didn't really look very good so I just used the one supplied by Pioneer with the deck. I would have preferred for it to have fit better so I wouldnt have had to use the shiny peice from Pioneer.

Pros: Easy, inexpensive

Great Adapter Kit for Ford Focus 2003

Written by: Gene from Salem Oregon on January 25, 2013

2003 Ford Focus
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had a normal 2 in high Pioneer DEK-17 in dash reciever/cd player I saved from my old car. The 2003 focus had a Blaupunkt factory stereo. This adapter worked as described. The adapter snapped easily into the large space in the dash which was left after removing on Blaupunkt unit. The narrower Pioneer receiver cage fit perfectly into the adapter unit. I installed the wiring adapter (I almost got the wrong one but the Crutchfield computer prompted me of the problem and I changed my selection to the correct one) and hooked up my Pioneer unit to the cars wiring harness. I popped it into the dash worked perfect and it looks great. Looks factory installed, except it says Pioneer on the front of the stereo. I only had to switch a couple of wires in the wiring adapter. Don't worry the instructions that came with the adapter tells you exactly which wires and for which cars. Simple adjustment. The old Blaupunkt units screen was going bad and I would have switched the stereo out sooner if I had know it was so simple. Thanks Crutchfield for making its so easy!

Pros: Perfect fit. Looks like factory dash piece. Wife loved the small storage space below stereo that we now have. Easy installation.

Cons: None

In dash adapter

Written by: CharlieK from owings, MD on December 20, 2012

2002 Ford Focus ZX5
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

One of the reasons for buying from Crutchfield, besides the competitive prices and good service, was that everything needed is included. With the in-dash kit, one simply inserts it into the opening in the dash and then drops the radio in. The plastic is flimsy and could see how one could break it if not careful. Unit is now squeaking a bit, coupling to some vibration in the car - quiets when you press on the plastic below the radio. May try adding a small block there to see if that helps. Also, requires a separate tool (provided) to remove the radio. Not the tool used to remove the factory radio. also, for the focus, have to remove a plastic tab in the middle (for installation in a Mercury Cougar)

Pros: easy to install

Cons: flimsy, bevel they provide doesn't fit radio and there is a gap between bevel that came with radio and this adapter. Not bad, but definitely has an aftermarket look to it.

Cons: Weak joint where the storage box meets the receiver opening.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This kit fits really good and is easy to install. The finish trim is poor quality. It has very small tabs that push in but they break very easy and cause a rattle noise. To fix this either use the trim from the radio or you will have to use some kind of adhesive glue to attach the trim piece around the radio. I would still recommend this kit.

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: Poor quality

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Don't ruin your installation with this kit - the faceplate/bezel is secured with (4) small pegs that are guaranteed not to hold and allow the part to fall off. Never have been more disappointed with anything from Crutchfield - and the fact that nobody took the time to research my complaint with this kit and do anything about it. I don't care that it's "FREE" - its not worth wasting your time trying to make it work.

Pros: None

Cons: Looks horrible, faceplate falls off, Crutchfield service won't acknowledge how bad it is, a complete and utter was of plastic.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Crutchfield selected this kit for the install of my new stereo in a 2003 Ford Focus. It worked, but it wasn't fun. For the Focus, the instructions said to remove two plastic tabs. The tabs did not want to snap off, so I tried installing it without removing them, and found out why they need to be removed. So I ended up digging out my Dremel to get them off. On the plus side, once I got it in, it holds very well. The little pocket at the bottom is nice, and the trim matches my dashboard well enough.

Used to install a Jensen HD5313IR(which I didn't like) but I will use it to install the next unit I get. The included trim ring would not allow the Jensen's fold down face to work but the one that came with the radio did. Other than this I'd give this kit a 5 star. You could probably use a dremel tool to make it work but since I didn't like the radio I didn't try and the radio's trim would have been close enough of a match for my taste.

Very simple install: just put the pocket on the bottom of the receiver as the tabs will align better. Mine was a great tight fit and didn't need to bracket the back of the radio. The entire kite was a breeze: did the wiring inside the house, assembled the housing and receiver carriage inside, too, then dropped it into the dash, connected the plugs and slid the receiver in the dash. Viola! I love it when things work out as they should. Thanks, Buzz and the Crutchfield team!

I received this dash kit with the Alpine CDE-102 that I ordered from these swell guys here at Crutchfield, and it went into my '04 Ford Focus with only a little fuss. The kit apparently fits either the Focus or the Mercury Cougar, and the tabs you have to break off to use it with a Focus are quite thick. Just remember to pack a saw, and you should be able to use this kit with little to no trouble.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

A bit of a tight fit in the dash opening of the 2001 Focus. As a result, the divider between the radio opening and the little "pocket" on the bottom warps downward a small amount (i.e., it is bent down a bit.) For the Focus, you need to cut off some fairly hefty tabs that are attached to the back of the top crosspiece. Because the crosspiece is thin, it would be very easy to break it while sawing off the tabs. I used a Moto-tool. Outward appearance is fine; it doesn't clash with the other plastics on the dash.

I have a detailed review on the CF forum also. The unit worked fine initially, although it was somewhat difficult to trim out the mounting tabs that allowed it to work in either a Focus or a Cougar. Over time the kit developed a gap between the trim ring and the CD pocket. Replaced the American International kit with a Metra kit and much preferred the looks and quality of the Metra kit.

Thanks, Crutchfield. I can't believe how easy it was to install my head unit. The whole process (removing old stereo, wiring the harness, installing new unit) took less than an hour, and it looks very clean and professionally done. I replaced the factory stereo with a pioneer deh-3900 w/sirius satellite receiver. I couldn't be happier with Crutchfield's service. Thanks again!

American International FMK565 Dash Kit

Written by: Randy from Canton, OH on September 19, 2007

Very easy to install and instructions were very simple to understand. Only problem was trim ring provided is too thick and won't allow Sony CD/FM faceplate to open far enough to insert a CD. Had to discard and use Sony's trim ring, though it's not perfect.
