Find what fits your car

You bought a 2003-07 Nissan Murano — great car, but its console makes it difficult to upgrade the factory radio. Metra's dash kit allows you to install a new double-DIN (4" tall) receiver in the Murano's dash panel, while maintaining all heating, ventilation, and air conditioning controls.

The kit is available in black or aluminum, a perfect match for the color, texture, and contours of your Murano's dash. Warranty: 1 year.

Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts — please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so. You can also call an Advisor for more information.

Works great

Written By Tray W., California on Saturday, August 29, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works perfectly! The kit need a little modification to allow the radio to fit my wife Murano. Nothing I couldn't handle. I have installed a few custom systems in my time.

Pros: Looks and feels better than factory Easy to Install with simple hand tools

Cons: Needs modification

1st gen Nissan Murano Dash Kit

Written By 1st Gen Murano Owner, California on Tuesday, July 21, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I don't understand why after paying so much for this kit, I still had to spend a whole lot of time cutting and sanding it to make a double din radio fit. I tried a few different brands of radios too. They all did not fit. The opening is about 1/8" too small on all sides. Metra says they used the standard double din size but radio manufacturers are oversizing the radio. My kit had a build date sticker of March 2015. You figure METRA would adjust the size of the opening to fit correctly. Sucks that this kit is the only choice available. Get this kit knowing that you will have to spend a lot of time modifying it to make it fit most double din radios. This kit is not meant for someone with no patience. It will take a lot of effort to make it work. After trimming every edge of the opening down my radio finally fits. Is it perfect? Absolutely not! Does it look pretty good and is functionally after all the hard work? YES! Oh and I'm glad i went with the black trim because the aluminum one would have been destroyed with all the cutting and sanding.

Pros: Looks good when its completed.

Cons: All the modifications you have to do to make it fit correctly.

Must Be Heavily Modified to Fit DD Radios

Written By Andrew, Virginia on Thursday, April 09, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This product is Way overpriced for the modifications you have to make. I bought a Pioneer 4000NEX and it would not fit the faceplate. I had to take a dremel and cut out a great deal of plastic from the inside in order to get the radio to fit. I thought I was mistaken until I read an online review where someone had to do the exact same thing. I was shocked that it wouldn't fit a double din radio, especially for how much this thing costs.

Credit where it's due, it's a great look and replacement for the OEM radio, and the buttons are solid and I haven't missed the knobs, but the fact I had to so heavily modify this thing for a fairly typical radio size surprised and disappointed me.

The plastic which is to hold the radio is flimsy and rubbish as well. Do yourself a favor, if possible, and use the metal brackets that are on the factory radio. I had the whole thing installed and dash back together, and the radio moved *so* much (anytime we touched a button on the radio or faceplate) that I feared the plastic would snap and the whole thing fall out while I was driving.

I am also disappointed that at no point in time did Crutchfield tell me that I may need to do actually cut down the back of the faceplate. Perhaps they weren't aware of this, but for the future installers, take note (I did contact Crutchfield on a few occasions to verify details before I purchased).

It works and looks great, but beware that if you buy this you may need to do some heavy modification

Pros: It looks great and feels like it rolled off the line. Great engineering to still use the internal controls for the screen on the dash, AC, etc. Crutchfield was a great help and the people are super nice, so I would bank on the notion that they themselves may not have been aware of all the modifications that are needed to make this work with certain radios.

Cons: Must be heavily modified to work with certain radios. Parts of it are far to flimsy to and cheap to justify the asking price of this device.

2003 Murana Metra Kit

Written By wildwhl, Nevada on Wednesday, March 11, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I know some have had a bit of a challenge with the instructions, but I found them quite easy. It is all there - the confusion may come from the fact that not all the wires are used as well as that there are two harnesses supplied with the steering wheel control adapter (if you buy the whole install kit as I did). One is prewired (in the box with the Metra 99-7612 kit) and the other has loose ends (boxed with the adapter). So disregard the latter. Installation was quite easy. The instructions are well done and the screws are not difficult to access. I used a JVC deck (single DIN) mostly because I wanted the cubby. Great place to stash my cell. The fit is near perfect, I didn't have to modify anything that wasn't called out in the instructions (and that which I did was simple). The steering wheel controls took a couple shots at syncing but following the instructions works like a charm.

The buttons on the Metra face kit work well. They're softer than OEM but that's not a negative as far as I'm concerned. I wish the temp and fan controls were still rotary knobs but my wife's Inifiniti uses buttons so I'm used to it. Sound quality is in fact improved. The Bose amp and speakers really aren't all that bad. The JVC deck I'm using has a 5 band parametric EQ and while I've yet to dial it in, I'm very pleased with the sound. In fact, there's usable bass now.

Install took me just over an hour start to finish. Did it myself. No special tools. Totally worth the Crutchfield price.

Pros: Ease of install, factory fit and finish, improved functionality due to more modern deck to replace the seriously lacking OEM headunit.

Cons: Instructions only 95% clear - could be a touch cleaner but quite frankly they're quite good.

Faulty Kit Expense

Written By Cameron L., Monterey, Ca on Sunday, November 30, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Despite the visual differences between the factory kit and the metra kit it looks great and the brushed aluminum matches perfectly. I received a faulty kit and due to lack of knowledge am unable to install or troubleshoot myself. Because if this I absorbed the installation/trouble shooting costs associated with the first install at two different companies. Crutchfield provided great assistance over the phone but it still doesn't make up for lost time or money. Power to all buttons on the kit are intermittent. If no power is present then all settings are stuck to include the A/C. The only way then to reset everything is to unplug the car battery.

I honestly think this is a good kit but I just got a defective one. It is the holiday season so the arrival of the new kit is delayed but I will give it another try once it arrives.

Pros: Looks good

Cons: Expensive Received faulty kit

Easier then expected

Written By TimH, Boston Massachusetts on Saturday, April 05, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great Product works perfect and was a lot easier to install then expected, I called around to a couple shops and they gave me estimates from $150-$200 I installed the metra kit along with the sony 64bt and hooked up my subwoofers all in 2 hours and I have only don't one car in dash installation before and it was with a buddy

Pros: allows you to put an aftermarket radio in the murano

Cons: bracket is plastic so you have to be careful + you need to get the steering wheel control adapter to use your controls

Only product for Murano factory head replacement

Written By Jon P, Potomac MD on Monday, September 23, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Seemed pretty expensive but now I understand what it does and how good it looks I'm happy, especially after the discount Crutchfield gave when bought with a new stereo. Installation was not too difficult; there were a few wires left over at the end that seemed redundant. One call to Crutchfield confirmed all was well. I turned on the ignition and it works like a dream. Loving my new Pioneer double din unit I installed with it.

Pros: Very good factory look Relatively easy to install Works all A/C and Computer controls that factory unit did Allows installation of standard after market single/double din

Cons: Better written Instructions would have saved me some time

Misleading instruction and cheap plastic screw mounts

Written By Big Cor, PA on Saturday, May 11, 2013

Intruction are misleading and Metra tech support is a joke. Very cheap mounting hardware. I got it to work, but Metra needs to tell people that if you're not using the steering wheel controls you still have to plug that piece into the bottom of the kit. Metra revamp your instructions.

Cons: Price, wrong instruction and cheap plastic mounting hardware
