Pros: Works great

2002 Mazda Protoge Double Din

Written By Lucas, Kansas City, MO on Friday, October 03, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The side brackets did not line up with my screw holes so I took a dremel tool and made my own (probably ended up better that way). The dimension vertically was spot on but horizontally was about 1/16 in to wide. Had to cut out the extra space from the original mounting in the car (behind the trim). It just slid into place and snapped when correctly positioned. All in all was really easy to work with and I am pleased with the outcome. I would recommend that anyone who uses this to make sure that you get at least 2 heavy screws on each side due to how light the plastic is.

Pros: Fit was good. Once it was in place it seems to hold together very solid.

Cons: Holes did not line up to stereo. (I was using Alpine CDE-W235BT, able to create my own though). Plastic was rather soft, wish it was metal.

Written By bcl, Alabama on Wednesday, May 07, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This kit is very poor quality, but I could find no other alternative. Cheap plastic brackets whose holes do not line up well with the head unit. Assembling the pieces around the head unit is like building a house of cards. It's amazing that this rig holds together when it's completed, but it actually does.

Pros: Unit seems to be securely mounted in the dash.

Cons: Surround face texture does not match anything in the dash. Generic holes do not match head unit well. Plastic is poor quality that you are expected to cut if you are installing a Double-DIN.

Metra 99-7505

Written By JoshB, Denver, CO on Sunday, January 12, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The kit worked very well to install a double din stereo into our 2001 Mazda Protege. The kit simply snaps into the sides using friction. The deck can easily be removed, I was hoping for the kit to utilize the pin style removal the original deck had. If Crutchfield says the deck is to deep and that the rear bracket will have to be removed, the bracket does have to be cut out utilizing a tool like a sawzall and then a screw must be pulled out of the ducting. It only took an extra ten minutes but I was hoping to remove the bracket instead of cutting it out.

Pros: Quick, easy install that made the installation flawless.

Cons: Only snaps in the sides, very little security for the new deck.

This fit perfect in my Mazda Tribute. My factory deck was screwed up and it took almost two hours to remove. But the new one was wired, installed and sounding great in about 15 minutes with the kits included by Crutchfield. Their tech service was great as well.

Metra 99-7505 Good and Bad

Written By Anonymous, Wallingford, CT on Tuesday, August 27, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Overall a nice product to allow installation flexibility. However, the way in which the front bezel connects to the side tabs isn't very good. Have had to pull the radio back out because the clips came out from one side of the bezel and the radio pushed into the dash. Had to shim out the clips to force them to lock into the bezel.

Pros: Flexibility for various installs

Cons: Tabs that connect to front Bezel do not make good connection and Radio can push in unless you shim the clips out to ensure they catch.

Disappointed

Written By Anonymous, Mississippi on Friday, July 05, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The product fit, but I was expecting something a little more secure. It is so easy to get this back out of my dash after it's been installed. I'm no longer willing to leave the top down while I leave my car for 5-10 minutes anymore.

Pros: Easy installation. Good fit.

Cons: Zero sense of security.

Perfect Fit

Written By macgeek, Charleston, SC on Friday, May 24, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This was a perfect fit in my 2005 Mazda Tribute. I had one small issue but figured it out. I forgot to plug in the external mic for my bluetooth phone integration. So I had to take this back out. I ended up using 2 small flat tools, like putty knives, on the top of it. If you need to take this out, look at the picture of it and see where the tabs are, put one tool in just above the top of the kit in the center, it will bend down slightly, slide it to the left until you feel the tab and work it above the tab to release it. Leave it in place and slide the other tool in the same starting position and slide it to the right from the center to release the second tab. Then the whole kit will rotate forward and in turn release the bottom tabs. Then just slide it out.

Pros: Perfect fit, nice look.

Cons: Semi-difficult to remove from dash, but figured it out.

Great fit

Written By MiataGuy, Dayton, OH on Thursday, June 28, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I agree with RobertoP, Seattle on Monday, March 19, 2012

"The kit requires that you cut and smooth a bar that divides the double din kit. It would be better that the kit be explicit to the double DIN installation without needing modification. The side brackets did not snap into the radio surround as they should and the holes did not align well with the radio. The instructions were incorrect about the radio rear support and did not mention having to disassemble the exiting radio bracket to install."

I wasted some time messing with it before callling the tech line and finding out I didn't need the rear support. It doesn't snap correctly in the opening at the top.

Pros: Looks nice and fits well

Cons: Instructions not correct and the top snaps will not stay.

Mazda Tribute Dash Kit

Written By RickL, Plano TX on Thursday, May 26, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The kit does not mount firmly to the radio or the dash. Within two days the radio was falling out of the mount. I had to fashion supports to hold up the radio as well as a stop to prevent the radio from sliding into the dash. The radio mounts and the dash surround are made from fairly soft plastic that is way too flexible especially in the Texas heat.

Totally unnecessary for my installation.

Written By Scott B, Austin, TX on Monday, May 23, 2011

This is mostly oriented to using a single DIN device (or two) to replace a double DIN device in the dash. This is the exact oposite of what I was doing, and so ordering this part was a mistake.

If you are installing one single, hight device, or two single height devices, this adapter will probably work fine. (When installing a single device, the second opening becomes a nice location for storing CDs or other small items.

If you are installing a double DIN device, like I did, don't order this part.

Excellent!

Mazda Protege5 DD Install

Written By Mike, Buffalo, NY on Sunday, November 07, 2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used the double din trim kit in a 2003 Mazda Protege5 with the Pioneer AVH-3200BT. The
trim piece fits perfectly with both the car and the head unit. It fits well and does what it's
supposed to. The plastic look of the trim isn't the most appealing but that will vary depending
on what style head unit you are installing.

Overall, two thumbs up.

Better than the Metra but still flawed

Written By SamM, Richmond, VA on Friday, September 10, 2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had the Metra version of this with my last head unit, and I feel the Scoche wins on being a bit more substantial and having a removable back plate to the bottom pocket that makes running rear-connected auxiliary and USB cables a bit easier to handle cleanly by drilling holes in the back plate. As should be expected, it snapped in very cleanly and the head unit fits snugly into it. Installation was very easy after I realized that super-gluing a couple of shims to the kit provided perfect stability for the head unit.

The big issue with this is that the trim ring is precariously connected to the body by four minuscule tabs and it's prone to snap right out when driving over train tracks or minor potholes. This is second time super glue came in handy when installing the kit. Granted, the Metra has the same problem, but I'd like to see one of the companies employ a better solution.

The minor issue, like nearly all aftermarket dash houses, is that it's ugly. Then again, since it was free I can't really complain.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Mr. Mechanic I am not! Although my father was a great mechanic (his career) I inherited none of his skill. Nevertheless, the Mazda Kit was a snap to install. The only problem was getting the radio out, the double din extractor, did not work; not the kit's problem, Mazda put the clips in like iron. I finally, using extractor and screwdrivers, got it to release. After that it was easy. Probably the clips holding the radio into the cage could be stronger. However, I screwed up and bent them putting radio in. I bent them back, but radio not as secure as I would like. However, so far not a movement (and a Miata moves!). So, I am pleased. I had a large hole to fill, and install the bluetooth microphone, and the finished product looks professional! I can't tell you how well you did on this one, because most things I "fix" I break!

Kit is useless for double din radio in mazda

Written By kalish, Albertson, ny on Sunday, January 11, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The kit is absolutely useless for a double din installation. The first issue is that the side mounts are not attached to the face plate, but merely slot it
place. The second issue is that there is no back or bottom support for the radio. So, when you put it in place, the radio simply falls into the dash leaving the frame in place. Took much customization to build a support bracket for the radio. Should be removed as a supported Crutchfield item.

Terrible!!!!

Written By John, San Antonio on Monday, December 29, 2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The only good thing about this product is that it was free with my stereo. I usually dont write bad reviews about products but this thing is soooooooooooooooooooooooo frustrating i had to. The stereo pops out of the bracket with the slightest bump, and its extremly difficult to put it back in place, and lastly why does it have the plastic bar going across the middle that you have to cut away, cause when you do cut it, it leaves very noticable imperfections where you made the cuts!!!!!!!

all in all, im pretty comfortable saying you'd be better off if you just use some duct tape to scure the radio.... okay im kidding about the tape thing but for real though DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT, especially if you have a 2003 mazda protege and a pioneer fh-p8000bt

Good kit

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was sceptical about buying this kit, considering all the negative comments about "structural integrity" , but was very pleased with the product. It is solid and the integrity comes down to the installer. A simple strap support bolted to the radio, and to the center storage cavity, and then to the cars dashboard support structure makes for a very simple, strong and clean install.

Not Up To Expectations

Written By Mike V., Northeast on Thursday, November 06, 2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Got this with the Clarion DUZ385SAT I was installing in my '02 Miata LS. While the appearance portion compliments both the OEM dash and HU, I'm very displeased with the lack of structural integrity of the kit. A two-year-old could rip this thing out in a heartbeat! Why didn't they try to at least incorporate the OEM security clips?

Terrible for a Mazda Tribute

Written By Lee, Raleigh, NC on Tuesday, September 23, 2008

Absolutely terrible dash kit if you want to install a double din radio or monitor. There is nothing at all to mount it to inside the dash of an 04 Mazda Tribute!

Might no be so bad with the single din w/ pocket option, but I just needed the double din frame and mount. Thought since it was vehicle specific it would actually mount inside the dash....

I hate this kit

Written By Sharon, Gretna, LA on Saturday, June 28, 2008

I have a Mazda 2002 Protege. First of all, I couldn't use the part with the
bin, no way to keep it in place. I ended up using the other part, but it came
with no screws to attach the radio, so I had to get my own screws. Once
that went into place, now I have a open space in the dash that I have to
figure out how to hide, since the radio I bought (Kenwood) only fits the top
half.

Worst ever

Written By lacklustre484, Findlay, OH on Friday, June 20, 2008

I installed a double din stereo and every time I take off it pops out. Every time I hit a bump the kit frame pops off. Unfortunately with the car and stereo I have installed this is the only option. Several installers warned me not to buy a Metra brand product for installation, but I just couldn't find anything else. If you can avoid this product, please do so.

This product made installing my single din radio quick and painless in the place of my factory double din unit. My only complaint is the storage bin under the radio is of little use. The bin has no lip and it does not angle down towards the back of the bin. Because of this, items placed in the bin slide out when the car is accelerating.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Pretty good product. Had no difficulties installing kit & radio. Did not have problems like other customers had with the other installation kit. No rattles or vibrations heard from kit so far. Delivery from Crutchfield was pretty quick, I was impressed.
