Not well thought out

Written by: peter from Carbondale, CO on June 24, 2016

2010 Volkswagen Touareg

Wish I'd had look at review as mentioned clips hit unit body making it almost impossible to install and this baby ain't coming out in one piece already had two sent. Side pieces need to be glued to front, this should be a one piece deal shame on the so called product engineers they blew it big time.

Pros: not any

Cons: engineers should be whipped poorly thought out

Goes in with modifications, never comes out again

2010 Volkswagen Touareg
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed in 2010 VW Touareg. Had to dremel down the clip ramps to get it to go in the dash...and once it went in, it does not come out. Did a test fitting and it would not come out - no key slots, no way to unclip from the frame inside the dash. Had to remove the faceplate surround and drill out the side pieces to get radio back out again. Unfortunately there only appears to be one type of aftermarket faceplate - Scosche and Metra, and both are designed the same way. Will be ordering another one of these and dremeling again to get it to fit...now that I know how it goes in, I won't put it on until I'm sure it's time for the final install.

Pros: Looks nice when installed - tight, no gaps

Cons: One-time use only, requires much modification to get into dash opening; requires complete destruction to get it back out, with a careful hand to not damage the factory pieces around it.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Looks nice but the way it snaps into the dash, It will be very difficult to impossible to be able to remove the new aftermarket system without destroying it. Once the radio is in, it is staying in for good.

Pros: Looks factory

Cons: Cannot remove radio again once it is in place

Looks great when done correctly

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is definitely a great looking unit but i can see how it would be easy to mark it up when trying to install it or remove it. All the pieces fit together well but it is a hassle to remove.

Pros: Good look Easy install

Cons:

Too excited!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The dash kit looks very OEM and clean however two of the tabs were broken on it when it came in from shipping. I was too excited so I installed it anyways but look right away when it comes in to make sure its not broken. Also figured I cant complain since its free!

Pros:

Cons:

not good

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used this to install a radio in a 2010 VW Touareg and I will probably be the only one to notice that I had to turn the unit upside down to get it to fit (the clips are different lengths on one side vs the other) , and even then it felt like I had to force it. The thing is jammed in there I don't think it will ever come out. Someone could do much better.

Cons:

Works But.....

2008 Volkswagen Touareg 2
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

this install kit is marginal at best. The assembly is adequate but not even close to the factory stereo. This kit uses all plastic clips where the factory unit used very strong and stable metal clips. It was very difficult to get the stereo installed in the dash. I actually had to put the stereo in the dash, install the mounting bracket and then pull the stereo outwards and snap it in the mounting bracket. It would not snap in the dash, period, with the stereo mounted in the part with the clips. Then the trim ring would not fit around the stereo, I had to sand down the opening to get it to fit properly. All pieces are plastic. I would not buy again. It holds the stereo firmly in the dash now but a novice would not be able to use this to install the stereo.

Pros: I really can't provide any

Cons: all plastic, did not install easily, trim ring not proper size

Poor Engineering

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This kit is intended to mount the radio and then snap into place. Once you mount a double-din unit you lose the ability to snap in place due to clearance issues. I was able to use the front trim piece after removing the snap in tabs but had to mount the stereo to the vehicle frame.

Cons:

Scosche VW2342B Dash Kit

Written by: Steve B. from Atlanta, GA on January 3, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This faceplate is not practical for its intended application. I am installing a double DIN system, and the clips will not fit between the dash and the stereo. If you manage to get it installed, it cannot be removed without breaking the plate's clips. I lost money on this plate because I had to modify it to get it installed, and the stereo sits too deep to match.

Pros:

Cons:

Looks nice but tough to install

2004 Volkswagen Touareg
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The faceplate looks great, like it was always there, but there were no instructions and it took forever to get installed. I need to take the unit out but can't because there are no instructions and I don't want to mess up the faceplate. Should have gotten a 5, but looks can't be everything.

Pros:

Cons:
