High quality dash kit, but a confusing manual

Written by: Zaid A from Georgia on June 4, 2016

2002 Honda Accord
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used this to install a smaller, single DIN stereo in my car. The manual that comes with this kit is mind-boggling confusing. It mentions screws and extra parts and all that. A Crutchfield rep saved me hours of my time and simply told me how to do it, as well as agreed that the manual could be better. Other than that, it's a great dash kit.

Pros: Does the job, solid quality/material

Cons: Infuriating manual

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

pocket below radio opening is ruined by having 'jewel case' slots on the side. i didn't use this pos. i reused a (slightly broken, but still better!) one i still had from an Alpine i ordered about ten years ago.

Pros: would have fit and looked good... if it was good enough to have been used.

Cons: pocket below radio opening too deep (the size of CD jewel case). the overall product ruined (i didn't even use mine), by the size of pocket and the jewel case slots built into pocket. the slots protrude into the pocket far enough to make it almost good for nothing else. then you combine that with the depth of the pocket... you can't even retrieve small items from it... trust me, i tested before i decided not to use it. METRA... who do you think is carrying around jewel cases? get with it.

Pros: Perfect fit. Easy install.

Cons: If idiots who owned your accord before you bent the bracket your console mounts to, then there will be a tiny gap in between the bottom of this carrier and your console. Other than that, there are no cons.

1999 Honda Accord
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This bracket fit and lined up perfectly with the screws in the dash and made it very easy to swap in a new head unit. My unit came with a mounting sleeve that should have snapped into this bracket however one side went in too far and took a lot of effort to pull it back and get it to lock in place. Not sure if it is the sleeve on the head unit or this bracket had been bent out of shape but after I got it locked in correctly, it feels tight and sturdy in the car.

Pros: Fills the space well Extra storage spot holds my phone charger

Cons: Took some fighting to lock my head unit mounting sleeve correctly

2002 Honda Accord
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This double-din kit replaces the factory double din I got with my '02 Accord. IT fits the space fine, and I haven't seen the warping other reviewers have commented about, but the one major issue I have presently is that there's no real way to secure my single din head unit into this dash kit. There are no side screws which means I can easily, with little resistance, pull my head unit out of the dash kit. I found this out when I tried to pull a USB cable out of my head unit and found the HU starting to come out before the USB 'grip'/friction yielded.

Pros: Fills the space left by my factory double din stereo.

Cons: Does little to secure and stabilize my head unit itself.

The in-dash receiver mounting kit fits easily in my car. Metra products seem to be well-known and used in the car stereo industry.

Pros: The bottom empty slot has two short bars that extend a quarter towards the middle; useful for holding CDs and small items. Material is of strong plastic.

Cons: The short bars could extend across the the left an right ends to support CDs, USB drives and small items. The bars are both a plus and minus in my opinion.

2000 Honda Accord
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It turned out that I didn't need this product to install the CD receiver I had , so I didn't use it. It wasn't worth the cost of shipping to send it back for a refund. It was intended for a vehicle that had never had a radio/audio unit before. You know: like a '53 Chevy.

Pros: It looked like a perfect match to the OE frame that was there.

Cons: Made of rigid plastic. Could be broken easily by over tightening screws.

This insert was a perfect fit. I was a bit worried about other reviews that spoke about possibly breaking the tabs since it's all plastic but I just kept from torquing it down too hard.

Pros: Perfect easy fit

Cons: CD case tabs waste a bit of space inside. Want to break them off but don't want to damage the whole thing.

No fitment issues during install. It's plastic but on the other hand it is free with the radio purchase so i was ok with it.

Pros: Fitment was ok .

Cons: Storage cubby should not have CD shelves... The plastic frame should have a better way of holding on to the radio sleeves metal clips. I found that when I slid the radio into the sleeve there was some play still even after bending all the metal tabs possible..

1998 Honda Accord
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This adapter has good plastic construction and I will be installing the unit for my brother in about 2 days, but the major problem I've had with this is adapter installing the din sleeve there is simply not enough room between where the din slot should be and the plastic slot that can hold stuff it needs around 1/8"-1/4" so that it would be easier to bend the tabs on din sleeve down and hold plastic edge, so instead of bending down just say around 4-6 tabs like have for the past 4 cars I have done (oldsmobile, ford, and 2 chevy) it took me about all the securing tabs on one side, and all the tabs on sides plus 3 on top to hold this to what I feel is adequate as I do not want his radio to shift even a few millimeters, I want it to sit nice and solid all and all good adapter, but expect to bend down alot of the tabs and make sure to up some pick and hook tools. they are not required, but I had them on hand at the time and they help significantly with pulling and twisting the tabs in the narrow space between din sleeve and plastic and helped make the sleeve hold as I wanted it to

Pros: Good, solid plastic construction, seems durable enough, shade of black seems good for dash color

Cons: Too much room on adapter for plastic slot, should have left enough space between opening for the din sleeve to be easy to install

Looks nice but I did not use it. I was looking for a way to make the unit look as stock as possible and I found a way. Build looks sturdy but I felt that the head unit would be loose with this and it would be a lot easier to steal, since it isn't attached to any metal from the car.

Pros: Looks nice.

Put a single din pioneer in my 98 accord and installation was a snap. The plastic is kinda flimsy in places so be gentle and it will work just fine. Bolted up to the factory dash very simply. I actually liked this unit better than the double version i installed in my other ride. Got the job done.

Pros: Easy to install, didn't have to even use the instructions. Finished product is.great, and even has a storage area for 3 cd cases.

Cons: Plastic can be flimsy so be gentle.

Replacing the original harness with this one is a giant step down. The new stereo (also from Crutchfield, Sony brand) does not fit snuggly inside the mount becuase the bottom of the slot and the storage hole doesn't have way to secure the stereo. Then, the appearance itself is less pleasing and useful compared to original drawer from car manufacturer. I ended up finding different screws and put the new stereo onto the original Honda harness.

Pros: Easy, free.

Cons: Appearance not great, no way to secure car stereo well. Hole is unsighty and cheap.

I would return it but don't want to bother uninstalling everything. The problem is that at the bottom the unit buckles or bows inward due to the standard Honda interface. This looks tacky and unprofessional.

No really, what is the purpose of this item? First of all the radio i bought from Crutchfield, fits perfectly into original car harware. Original car hardware is metal and has side plates to which you can attach your radio so it will stay in place and won't be loose. Now look at this item, first this is plastic, second there is no way to attach radio to this thing. It fits into car perfectly and can be attached to the car, but! Radio cannot be screwed to it. Bottom line, itis useless piece of plastic.

It fit perfectly into the space of the factory radio. Main issue was that 2 of the screws could not be removed with a screwdriver. Fortunately, I could use a 3/8" socket to get more leverage. Also, I dropped 3 of the screws during the process, so it took a bit of time to find them and fish them out. A magnetic screwdriver or some other device should be recommended to avoid this.

The kit goes together easily but the tabs that support the receiver aren't very precise so they allow some movement in the receiver. This results in the receiver hitting the lower plastic when you hit a bump. Put some foam or cloth under the receiver when installing.

This nicely filled the opening and the fit and finish are very good.

I'm very pleased overall with this Honda Receiver Kit, it was easy to install & it sits nicely in the dash. It provides a very clean look which is exactly what I was aiming for. If I were to be extremely picky I could say that by looking at it, the bottom of the kit sticks up a fraction of an inch but it is barely noticeable & you have to look very hard to see it. My wife is also very impressed. If you're intending to keep an OEM look to your dash with your new aftermarket radio, I highly recommend this!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I initially installed this in my 2001 Honda Accord but was not a fan of the CD-slot design. I removed it and discovered that the factory radio could be removed and the after-market radio put in its place (in my case a Clarion). The end result in my case was keeping the closing storage bin from the factory dash with the new radio. While the fit is not perfect (the after market radio has a SLIGHTLY smaller face) it is neither a functional or aesthetic issue. Had this piece not had the CD slots and had a door I would have been happier with it.

I've been a repeat Crutchfield customer for over 29 years, and like all products I have received from Crutchfield, this was a perfect fit! The instructions were right on track and the product fit like a glove. Absolutely no problems thanks to Crutchfield's knowledge of cars and their great products and tech support. That's why I keep coming back!

This kit enabled me to move a recent radio purchased from Crutchfield to another car when I traded in my "Clunker". As with evertything I have bought from Crutchfield, it fit perfectly in our 2000 Honda Accord and also gives you some CD storage underneath. Thanks again Crutchfield.

2000 Honda Accord
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Like most everyone said this thing fits like a charm and installs easily. The plastic does seem a little flimsy but that doesn't really matter. The only complaint I've noticed, and I saw it myself, was being able to see the metal bracket behind the radio. This was easily fixed by using some black electrical tape to create a shim and slight push the face of the radio cover up. Straightens it out, hides the metal and you don't even notice the black electrical tape. Just my two cents!

the title says it. Perfect fit! Its simple to install, and sturdy enough to secure the unit just fine. I think it happens to look good in my dash as well, so no complaints, and it does exactly what its supposed to do. The service was great as well! Speedy delivery, and Crutchfield included it free with the purchase of my head unit.

Installation was easy and fits well. Haven't noticed any warping others are talking about (yet). I believe the radio should be a little more flush, it has a protruding look in my 1999 Honda Accord. Overall good kit.

Easy Fit--Poor Design

Written by: Mike from Austin,TX on September 13, 2008

The kit made the install very easy but the finished overall look is below average. If the kit design only included a sliding cover for the huge gap vs a giant, empty, open space it would be much better. I know the intentions of the uncovered storage space is for CD storage but to have CD's in the open like that seems like an invitation for a smash and grab.

01 Accord, no gap

Written by: Phil from Oklahoma on August 18, 2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This adapter slid right into an 01 Accord with no gap at the bottom. Fit all the way around the opening is great, so I'd recommend it at least for the 01 Accord... the bottom of the dash opening in this particular car didn't have the warping effect on the adapter at all. The cd slots in the storage area don't bother me at all since I won't store anything in there except for 3 or 4 thumb drives anyway.

Warping Plastic

Written by: Steven from Philadelphia, PA on April 21, 2008

1999 Honda Accord
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Overall, the kit fits well and looks great in my 1999 Honda Accord, but I did have the problem with the plastic warping along the bottom edge of the fixture. However, the reason for the warping IS NOT THE KIT! There is a metal plate that allows the dash radio panel to clip onto the car which pushes up against the plastic of the receiver kit, causing it to warp. I think that the problem would happen with any kit made for the opening, so its really not Crutchfield's fault. The gap is barely noticeable except for the bright metalic clip showing through... so I painted the clip black and now it really looks pretty good. As for storage, the CD ridges take up some space, but theres still plenty of room for most of the stuff you'd usually store in the dash... like a cell phone or ipod to plug into the receiver.

I had read a few reviews about the gap the kit has, but when I put it in it fit prefectly and didn't have a gap at all. It is a great kit and worth the money.

1998 Honda Accord
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had absolutely no problems installing this in my 98 Honda accord. It works, and looks good. The whole install, including taking out the factory radio, installing this and the new radio, took about an hour including 30 minutes dealing with a frozen screw. My only negatives for this is that I would prefer there not be fins in the shelf so that it could be used for non-CD storage, and I would like the ability to crimp the DIN holder more tightly on the bottom (right now you can only fold down partially because the crimps hit the shelf. Nonetheless, everyting seems solid, and the new receiver looks great in the unit.

99 Accord Coupe - gap at bottom

Written by: James from Seattle, WA on August 16, 2007

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The bottom panel of my adapter is slightly warped upwards as well, showing the infamous gap at the bottom. Very disappointing. Now I'm going to have to remove the whole thing and try to modify it in some way, maybe reinforce the bottom panel to keep it flat? I suppose I should try to find a better unit first...<BR><BR>I don't like the fins inside either - out in the open like that is NOT a place where I would want to store CDs, so the only thing the fins will do for me is reduce the usable space. I much would rather this were a clean empty space with a simple door.

2002 Honda Accord
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have to agree with some of the earlier reviewers. I installed this kit in my 2002 Accord EX last week, and there's a small gap at the bottom of the pocket where you can see into the dash. It's pretty subtle and not a huge deal to me, but if you like your installs to be completely perfect, this is probably not the kit for you.<BR><BR>Not really Crutchfield's fault as far as I know, since this kit is actually made by Metra. Unfortunately, I don't know if there are any other options for the Accord.

Not up to Crutchfield's standards

Written by: Dale from Louisville, KY on May 18, 2007

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have to agree with David. The bottom pocket warps after installation, resulting in a gap through which you can see the innards of the dash. Not pretty, and not up to Crutchfield's usual high standards. And while the face of the kit has a nice pebbled finish, the inside of the pocket does not. Instead, the plastic surface has a crude, unfinished look with mold and tooling marks that are readily visible if no CDs are stored in the pocket. I've yet to find a quality dash kit for 1998-2002 Accords. This one isn't it.

I disagree with the previous review. After my installation, there were no gaps or anything, it almost appeared to be factory! This kit works fine when installed properly. The mount holds up well, and when you have alot of cd's, even 3 slots can help! I would recommend this product.

Does not fit properly in 2002 Honda Accord EX

Written by: David from Columbus, OH on August 5, 2005

2002 Honda Accord
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed this kit in a 2002 Honda Accord EX. It mounts just fine, and holds the deck just fine, but the bottom pocket gets warped pressing against a plate at the bottom of the center console trim. This leaves a small space where you can see the metal behind the dash. I also didn't like the permant grooves for holding CDs, which make the pocket practically useless for storing anything else. I sure hope there is a more asthetically pleasing kit out there.
