Doesn't fit 2001 Saab 9-3 without lots of cutting

Written By going_28, Audubon, Pennsylvania on Saturday, September 19, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This doesn't fit (2001 Saab 9-3 base) at all without cutting about 3/8" off the top, and all snap-in tabs. After that, it looks great, I think, but it doesn't sit flush. Sits about 1/4" back from the face, which for me is fine. The cut top piece hides neatly under the pop-out cup holder, as long as you don't cut it too short.

Pros: Looks pretty good when all the required work is done.

Cons: Doesn't fit as advertised.

Simple and easy. Looks like it was original equipment. Stereo installed in an hour.

Pros: Perfect Fit.

Does Not Fit on 2002 Saab 9-3 SE.

Pros: No Pros

Cons: Doesn't fit

Not a perfect fit

Written By Dan, South Carolina on Wednesday, May 13, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This plate was advertised to fit a 2001 Saab 9-3 SE, but there was quite a bit of trimming to make it work. The top two clips had to be removed in order to make it fit the space. Advertising that it requires trimming and how to do it (dremel on low speed) would be nice.

Pros: Inexpensive. Easy to trim with a dremel.

Cons: Not a snap in fit.

It fits perfectly in a 1999 Honda Civic, just read the instructions.

Pros: Perfect Fit

Cons: The storage slot is small, like my lighter gets stuck, I can't reach it without using a pen. I'm a thin guy, my hands are not fat. Metra could have made a larger storage area.

10 minutes or less with a dremel and this fits as well as you should expect. Press fit is tight laterally. No complaints. Is it perfect? No. But hey, it's a 14 year old car. I'm happy.

Pros: FREE! Works with minimal effort.

Cons: Takes a little time, tools and thought to fit it.

The reason why its free

Written By GraysonJ., Holly Springs, NC on Wednesday, April 09, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I drive a '99 Saab 9-3 and even though Crutchfield insist that this in-dash receiver fits my car, it doesn't, at all. Its too tall so now I'm stuck deciding on whether I should trim this free one or go buy another one that actually fits. Also the tabs where my head unit would go are a pain to remove. I have to saw them off and file the edges down if I choose to use this kit. The storage pocket is also rather small. I can fit my wallet so it really isn't that bad. Its just my fingers can't reach the back cause my knuckles are to big to fit in, so if anything were to get stuck back there it'd be a pain to get it. Other then that its a sturdy unit. Im sure if it actually fit it'd do its job just fine.

Pros: -Storage pocket can hold wallet and phone in a more convenient place -Pretty sturdy considering its free

Cons: -Doesn't even fit my car -Tabs are a pain to get off. I have to saw them off and file the edges down.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works great .. but the opening below the face plate is too small ... it would be better if it was rectangle and not rounded at the corners... can get to cell phones to fit.

Pros: works

Cons: openning to small for items under the face plate.

Pros: Sturdy build, easy install

Cons: Storage pocket is smaller than the dash kit this replaced, lost ability to store my garage door opener beneath deck.

Nice Adapter

Written By Jon, Christiana, TN on Thursday, February 20, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The tabs can be laborious to remove. Be sure you have a sharper box cutter than I did. On the plus side, if you need those tabs, they seem to be pretty sturdy. This kit fit my 99 Civic very well and looks snug once installed. Everything feels sturdy and secure so far. The pocket seems like it could be bigger given the space it has, but it does feel thickly-walled and sturdy.

Pros: Good and sturdy fit in 99 Civic, nice enough looking.

Cons: Tabs are a bit laborious to remove; the pocket seems like it could be bigger.

Watch the tabs

Written By MSN, Leawood, KS on Wednesday, January 15, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It works like it should, but the tab removal process is a little confusing if you don't pay attention, which I didn't. Make sure you remove the correct tabs so you don't have to stuff an old sock (or 3) under the dash to keep it in place. Also, the slot at the bottom is so deep that anything small you put in there will have to be fished out of there with a stick since hands can't fit.

Needed significant modification in a Saab 9-3

Written By Skip M, Chicago on Monday, December 30, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is not a direct fit for the double-DIN hole in a stock Saab 9-3 (2002). Needed significant attention from a belt sander. Free and worth what I paid.

Pros: Came free with the receiver. Adds a little cubby instead of just a blank panel.

Cons: Didn't fit! Cheapy hard plastic. Not very good looking but I made it work.

Does not fit Saabs

Written By Lee, Alexandria, VA on Saturday, November 23, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Despite Crutchfield's claim, this does not fit Saab cars, and Metra does not claim it fits Saab cars. After quite a bit if time with a Dremel, I was finally able to make it fit , but there is still no way to secure it in the space (other than a super tight fit). It does not support the radio bracket adequately, and I had to add spacers in the back to keep the radio from tilting. The storage space is unnecessarily small and needlessly tapers toward the back. Had I realized up front it didn't fit my car, I would have looked for an alternative.

Pros: It was free.

Cons: Did not fit my Saab. Storage space could have been bigger.

Will it really fit?

Written By WillP, Omaha, NE on Monday, October 21, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This product looks nice enough out of the box, until I had the realization that this wasn't designed to fit my car and that it is only close to the same dimensions. I drive a '99 Saab 9-3 and had to double check my order when looking at this package. I had to trim off approximately 1/2" from the top side and am not very happy with the end appearance but it had to be altered in order to fit. I would have liked knowing beforehand that this wouldn't fit so that I could've shopped around to find a better fitting option.

Pros: The storage pocket is a nice size.

Cons: Did not fit and Did not know beforehand

Saab 9-3 Alpine radio install

Written By Jerry, wyckoff, NJ on Sunday, October 13, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

As it is not an exact fit product, there is some necessary skill in installing this bracket for the radio. Just being informed when you buy it would have been nice. In the end it is not that difficult to do, just have to spend some time to trim down the unit about 5/16" carefully and evenly. if you have a trim plate for the Alpine radio and put the sleeve in and the radio, before you try to install the unit, put the trim on the radio and match the amount you cut off the plate to match the top of the radio trim, provided you put the radio on the top of the adaptor plate. If you cut it down exactly to the trim plate it will fit reasonably snug as well.

Pros: Looks fine when all done as described.

Cons: Not if you are not handy with a hacksaw and files. I used the Hacksaw for the first cut then I used a table grinder to get it closer then the file to bring it exactly where it need to be.

Good Receiver Kit

Written By Bob M., Lewes, DE. on Monday, September 30, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to use once modified to fit new/replacement radio. Needed to cut out old style radio face control knob holes.

Pros: Radio mounts easily into receiver. Snaps in dash easily.

Cons: Will need modification to fit all receivers that do not have the old style radio control knob stems.

Not very good

Written By TerryA, Dublin OH on Friday, September 27, 2013

I purchased a new head unit, speakers, and various installation parts from Crutchfield. I was very pleased the whole purcase experience except this piece. I had to remove tabs and cut out parts in order to use it with my head unit. A less generic kit would been much better: I particularly had trouble removing the supports for dual-spindle head units without damaging the rest of the (somewhat flimsy) kit.

Pros: It worked

Cons: Difficult to customize, a bit flimsy

Metra 99-7893 Dash Kit

Written By APC, California on Saturday, August 10, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I expected it to fit right into the space after removing my factory did not. There was quite a bit of cutting and filing to make it happen. The final outcome was good though. You just need lots of patience to get there.

Pros: Price was low enough to warrant purchase.

Cons: Wish my Crutchfield advisor had mentioned that it would need modification to fit my car. Imagine my surprise when I opened the shipping package to see Honda written all over the product material.

Metra In Dash Receiver Kit

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Removed the factory stereo from my 2000 Honda Civic and installed a Sony CDX-GT710HD with this receiver kit. Looks good and fits perfectly. The kit provided an open storage slot (phone, ipod, etc.) that I didn't have before. Highly recommend.

Pros: Perfect fit

Cons: None

Disappointing In Dash receiver Kit

Written By Macko, Chesapeake VA on Thursday, May 23, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have never been disappointed with an order from Crutchfield until I received this in dash kit that I bought for my daughter as part of her Christmas Present. The radio, wiring harness, speakers, and the installation instructions were top rate, but this piece of plastic leaves a lot to be desired. Ok, it did what it was supposed to do. The radio fit the in the kit, and the kit fit the car, It works and was easy to install. However once the installation is complete you have to live with the appearance and uselessness of the final product. The size of the opening of the little compartment is miniature and the textured finish is cheesy and cheap looking. Granted this is installed in a 1999 Honda CRV, not a Lexus or Mercedes ... , and my daughter has not complained a bit, but as you can see in the picture, there is plenty of room to expand the oval opening to a more useful, taller wider and deeper squared-off-corner compartment with a much nicer finish for a better appearance.

Pros: Functional, nice fit, easy to use,

Cons: Cheap appearance of the textured plastic and small useless

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I can't figure out why everyone wants to hate on the pocket underneath I guess they want the crutchfield fairy to magically make more space in the dash where the stock stereo was the pocket is as big as it can be. I think the pocket is perfect for your phone and wallet because it doesn't slide around. It's easy to install and looks like it came with the car

Pros: Easy install Fits well Loveeee the pocket Looks great

Cons: There's no such thing as a crutchfield fairy

This is my 3rd Crutchfield installation in a Honda CRV and the first time I had to trim any plastic off the installation kit. I was kind of bummed about that but the trimmed-out edges are not visible once you install the receiver trim ring. The installation of a JVC receiver fit perfectly and was snug and secure. The install went exactly according to instructions.

Pros: Quick and easy install Good instructions Good fit and finish

Cons: This is a petty gripe but I liked the old Honda dash kits I got from Crutchfield better than this one.

Fits well, but could be nicer.

Written By DaveM, California on Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The receiver kit fit perfectly, however the cubbie is too small for most anything and the plastic is cheap. Even with the same plastic a resized cubbie would reduce the amount of plastic showing. Used in a 2000 Civic EX coupe. Given the original radio used screws to secure the radio from behind, this kit could also use those mounting holes for a more stable fit.

Pros: Fits perfectly, it was free and easy to install.

Cons: Could be a more asthetic design.

At least it was free

Written By paste, Siloam Springs AR on Thursday, July 05, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This turned out to be useless for a 2004 Honda Odyssey. The clips were not sized right to engage the dash and just would not clip in at all. The original stereo has little steel angle clips fastened to it that attach to the dash interior with 4 bolts, and I figured out that I could attach those clips to the new radio, and attach the old storage compartment below it attached to the new radio just like the stock radio. Even if this face plate did fit the vehicle properly, the DIN sleeve attachment to the faceplate was hokey, and the radio would have been rattling around like crazy.

Pros: I didn't pay anything for it.

Cons: Unattachable to vehicle, crummy attachment to radio. One more hunk of plastic to hit the landfill or recycling center.

Just OK

Received this kit free with my stereo purchase so I wont complain too much. The universal fit is something I expected,but I didnt realize that you would have to "cut" tabs off of the main piece. Ive dealt with other kits in the past that were easier to use and seemed of better quality. Also that stupid useless pocket! Who in their right mind though that it would be a good idea to make the pocket that size!!!!!! Utterly ridiculous. But it was free and it fits so I give it 3 stars

This receiver kit was free with my car radio purchase. It mounted and fills the space properly, but could be molded better. A smooth finish (rather than the rough surface it has) would fit in with my, and most dashboards better. And I don't understand why it's shelf is so small. I'll get used to it.

It would take much more time and effort to steal.

Pocket too small and too much work

Written By KevinO, Indianapolis on Wednesday, August 10, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The pocket was too small, and when I thought I would use it anyway I decided not to go through with all the work required to cut out the tabs at the top. The directions say to use a utility knife, but it seemed that would take forever. For my '03 Honda Odyssey I ended buying the Scosche Honda/Nissan In-Dash Install Kit UI3050, and to get it installed with the pocket and the original mounting bracket I had to use the pocket brackets that said they were for Nissans.

Does the job, but Pocket in too small

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Adequate for the receiver installation in a 2000 Honda Odyssey, but the pocket height is so short and the pocket so deep I cannot retrieve items like glasses or a pen that are at the back. Need to fix this loss of capacity and utility for owers with a bigger pocket. Previous Honda kit in my 1996 Accord didn't sacrifice pocket capacity as much as this kit does.

has a cheap look to it. doesn't hold stereo as securely as i would like , not bad, but
could be better. pocket is crazy small. does fit in the hole nicely and was
included free with stereo purchase for the know. oh and it works
with knob style stereos too, so if you're putting a 8track or cassette player in your
late 90's honda this is for you!...huh?

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I got this for free when I purchased CD player for my Honda Civic 2000 sedan.
This allows you to install the new system as it's designed, I mean that you can
easily slide out the player to reach the rear of the unit. The downside is that
this has much smaller pocket than the original square pocket (deeper, though). I
chose not to use this to keep the original square pocket. I need a good space to
keep small things including some CDs. I don't have easy access to the rear of
the CD player, but I still think it's okay for me.

It does the job

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This kit fits exactly for our 2002 Honda Odyssey and assembling it was an easy
task. The build quality is okay; mine has some extraneous plastic bit sticking
on the front panel that I need to cut off because it was very sharp. The pocket
was too narrow but yet very deep, and it makes it very hard to reach small
things that lay flat on the back.

The install kit was not a perfect fit for my civic and I have to dremel the trim. The harness was perfect.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I give this mount a middle of the road rating because I did not need it. The Kenwood
unit's screw holes matched the existing mounting holes in my Honda. Check your own
vehicle before utilizing this mount unless you want the slide in and out ability it offers.

Absolute MUST for Honda CR-V install

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I called Crutcfield after obtaining my stereo, BUT before install. While I had
their Wiring Harnes I wanted to avoid added expense of this face plate. Their advisor
convinced me differently, explaining I would have open spaces around my
new receiver, which I surlely did not want. I bought and used the plate and must say it
worked and looks great. Thank you again Crutchfield! Note this plate comes free if you
buy receiver from them!

Receiver kit fits well

Written By SteveP, Atlanta on Thursday, February 17, 2011

Fits perfectly, no issues. The only downside is that the pocket beneath the receiver is
deep and narrow making it difficult to retrieve things that are at the back of the pocket.

Terrible pocket/storage with this kit

Written By Jim, Goldsboro, NC on Tuesday, December 21, 2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

As others have said here the pocket/storage size of this kit is two narrow and deep
to be usable. The insert fits snugly enough and would be great but for this. Hard to
understand why a company as good as Crutchfield appears to be would sale this
as their kit. The radio I purchased is great but I miss my previous very usable
storage space. This is a sacrifice the customer should not have to make.

I broke off the wrong clips at the bottom of mine so it doesn't always stay snugly
in place. That was my fault but just adds to my frustration with this kit.

Honda radio mounting kit used for Saab

Written By Brian, Massachusetts on Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Ordered a Pioneer DEH6200 from the outlet. Great unit, great price, very happy. The free mounting kit for my 2002 Saab 9-3 convertible is worthless however. Kudos to Crutchfield for the wiring harness that worked flawlessly. I would have been happy if they simply told me the supplied mounting kit was going to be useless regardless of the amount of trimming required.

A good fix and works fine. I wish it had more support and I put some folded foam under
the "pocket" and the frame of the car for extra security.

Also, the little storage compartment is about 1/3 the size of the factory tray. I can no longer
store everything I did before. The radio fit works as designed, though.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Overall nice product with decent plastic quality. I like the fact that it is one
piece as opposed to 2. The original Honda radio piece was much higher quality.
To install my JVC radio there had o be some modification/ cutting of plastic-
but not too bad. The pocket should also not be as deep since it is harder to
reach small items. Would also have liked the pocket to be rectangular instead of
