Our take on the Metra 99-7872 Factory Integration Adapter

by Charlie Pastorfield

You bought a 2007-2008 Honda Fit — great car, but its console makes it tough to upgrade the factory radio. The Metra  99-7872 black integration adapter allows you to install an aftermarket DIN (2" tall) or double-DIN (4" tall) receiver in the dash panel, while maintaining all heating, ventilation, and air conditioning controls. The adapter is a perfect match for the color, texture, and contours of your dash.

Please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this kit is compatible with your vehicle. Warranty: 1 year.

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

Good purchase

Good dash kit. Easy to install and looks good. I put it in my moms honda fit with a jvc head unit and she loves it.

Fits like a glove. Blends right in.

Written By Rosscoe P., Enumclaw, WA on Sunday, May 11, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great product. I still can't believe that an aftermarket replacement can fit and look so flawless.
Pros:
fits perfectly.
Cons:
Took me a bit to recognize that the single din adapter made the radio slot 1/8 inch too small. I called a Crutchfield expert on Sunday and they diagnosed the problem sight unseen. I felt like a dork but got my problem solved quickly and got the new deck installed quickly.

Embarrassingly Terrible

Written By Dann, Tampa, FL on Monday, May 05, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I wish I could attach a picture. I had it professionally installed because the reviews were terrible enough I thought maybe it could be bad installs. Color is not correct, whatever font they use is horrid. It's not even mildly flush with the dash.
Pros:
I can put in double DIN or single.
Cons:
I can slide quarters into my dashboard when I feel like it.

Not bad, not great

Written By Honest Fellow, Sun Prairie, WI on Sunday, November 03, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I fits the opening just fine, looks factory as well. Getting the factory radio out is very hard to do with out scratching the dash. Also make sure you remove ALL the plugs for the fans and lights, and reuse the OEM metal brackets. It really makes your new head unit hold more solid.

My does not hold my airbag light or ac/defroster lights. They are in there, but I would not be surprised if one day they just slide out. cooling and heat knob colors are a bit lighter but nothing to make you take a second look.
Pros:
looks like factory when installed.
Cons:
Button and airbag lights do not hold very well in mine. Should tell you to use the factory metal plates.

Everything works fine, the trim plate wasn't good as expected.

Pioneer radio is great

Trim plate for the Honda Fit needs a little work. Doesn't fit perfectly.

Fit adapter Fit

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Easy to install and looks good. I like the extra shelf under the unt.
Pros:
Looks like the Factory face plate. All the mounting points line up perfectly.
Cons:
Unit sits too far back, but I think you could move the radio forward in the mount if you put some thought into it.

Good, but be careful.

Written By gtt, Springfield, PA on Monday, October 01, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This works well, but be aware that you probably want to keep and use the OEM metal brackets. I bought a Sony radio that's in DIN format. Just using the metal tabs around the edges of the hole where the radio goes would leave it pretty flappy. I ended up using the OEM metal brackets that held the non-DIN Honda radio, and two screws that came with the Sony radio so that it's held by both the metal tabs around the front hole and the metal brackets and it's in there pretty solidly.
Pros:
Fits pretty well.
Cons:
Can be difficult to get OEM panel off without scratching dash. You really need to use the OEM metal brackets to hold the radio or it can flop around.

It looks flush but it rattles after a year. I bought two and both rattled. I'm giving up.

This adapter does not fit correctly. Uneven gaps all the way around. Squeaking noises on rough road are very bad.

The only Reasonable option

Written By Gordon, Irvine, CA on Tuesday, November 18, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The kit works and looks decent. It is highly recommended that you get a tool to remove the original faceplate.

**Please please please take care when pulling off the original faceplate. Many Fit owners, including myself, have broken the fan switch, because the Crutchfield instructions DO NOT warn you that the cable for the fan switch is extremely short, and when you manage to get the whole faceplate loose, if you just angle it or pull it a little, you will break your fan swich ~$30 part.**

Everything else seems to be working just fine. Fitment is what you'd expect - not perfect and color match is not perfect, but it does work and for the price i'm not going to complain.

Only/Worst Option

Written By Robert, Walnut, CA on Thursday, October 23, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Unfortunately for Honda Fit owners there are few options for aftermarket deck kits. This kits poor construction results in an insecure deck (sagging, loose, and rattling). I worry that a pothole will someday send my deck flying to the floor, lacking any serious support. This kit alone has taken all the excitement away from getting a new deck and left me with a feeling of regret, only to be reminded that there is no other option.

I give it three stars only because there is no other option...

PERFECT FIT (NO PUN)

Written By Charlie, Woodbridge, Va on Tuesday, September 02, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
So I decided to take my time and upgrade my Audio system First it was the
radio I went with Alpine CDA-9884 so I had to buy the kit Obviously. After
about 10 minutes of reading the installation drawings and looking
everything over the install went great fits perfectly only problem I had was
making sure my radio was set out enough to operate the CD deck.
But it works like a champ.

Honda Fit kit :)

Written By Donald, Pagosa Springs, CO on Thursday, August 28, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The kit provided everything needed for an easy installation. It took me all of one hour to complete the task, which was mostly wiring.

The only negative had nothing to do with this kit but involved the antenna adapter. The "extra" wire on the adapter must go to the switched power (ignition switch). This is the power connector to the antenna amplifier. If not connected, you'll get lousy reception at best. I say this because there's no instructions with the adapter.

The dash mounting components are an absolutely perfect color match and looks great in my little Fit.
