About the Metra 99-7504 Dash Kit

Metra 99-7504

The dash opening this kit is designed for is a different shape and size than typical aftermarket receivers. The mounting bracket covers the "gaps" and anchors your new receiver in your dash. If your vehicle has manual climate control, you must install the supplied pocket to fill the space above the radio, replacing the factory-installed driver information display. If your vehicle is equipped with automatic climate controls, the display can be retained, but only the climate control info will be displayed. Warranty: 60 days.

The kit also includes:
  • storage pocket
  • side brackets, which you can use if your receiver has ISO-DIN mounting holes for side support
  • trim ring to make the installation more attractive
  • MFR # 99-7504

What's in the box:

  • Radio housing w/ pocket
  • 2 ISO-Brackets
  • Trim-ring
  • Display replacement pocket
  • 2 Retention brackets
  • 2 Screws
  • 2 Nuts
  • 2 Clips
  • Installation Instructions

Perfect fit in my daughter's Mazda3. Looks OEM. The extra storage is nice, and it was very easy to get everything to fit.

Pros: Great fitment, premium look. Extra storage.

Cons: Radio is a little wiggly.

Great kit for a 2004 Mazda

Crutchfield customer from College Station, TX on 2/14/2017

2004 Mazda 3

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This worked great. There was a small section of the trim that did not fit perfectly flush, but I am the only one who would notice. I should also say that the top tray that replaces the OEM clock now holds my cell phone while plugged in. It is really slick. The lower section under the stereo is pretty big and could fit several things. It leans a bit forward, but if I stuck loose stuff in it I might add a silicon mat. They should think about listing it as an accessory. If I knew the top opening where the OEM clock was located was as big as it is, I would have ordered the 2-din stereo. I wanted a good spot for my phone, and I thought it would have to go in the lower opening. Either way, I do not regret my decision because the opening in the back of the lower bay allowed me to fish my stereo microphone through without making any new wholes.

Pros: Installed quick and fit great Wholes in the back of the lower area allows to fish in wires like the stereo microphone or other accessory wires. Top bay fits my Samsung Galaxy Note5 in a Otterbox case (about the biggest cellphone on the market)

Cons: One section of the trim was not perfectly flush with itself. The kit fit the car great, but a cowling did not perfect fit with its own mounting surface. Still it worked out great.

Nice replacement for OEM

Illinois from Rockford, IL on 4/2/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is a good fit for installing aftermarket in this vehicle. I have always used Crutchfield for customized installs. Not every aftermarket compares well to OEM quality in my opinion. Some cheap adapters are just not good quality and don't fit well.

Pros: Good fit, finish, similar to OEM quality. Works well with car

Cons: Did not include screws to attach brackets to radio. I managed to find some that worked. You need flat wide head screws to secure brackets.

Better than Competitor, Lacks Fit and Finish

CM Guy from Citrus Heights, CA on 1/14/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I must say that I like this dash kit better than the other leading competitor. Having the pocket at the top makes it look more intentional than a blanked off hole and having the receiver higher up in the dash looks more balanced than having everything lower. However, the fit and finish of this one is severely lacking = gaps at the sides, not flush at the bottom, and the trim at the top doesn't fit tightly with the pocket leaving overlapping plastic. Also, the face of the receiver sits about 3/8 inch back from the face of the trim which gives it a recessed look. I actually like the look of this better than having the face proud of the trim, but it does make the corner buttons on the unit a bit harder to push. 3 stars because it was included with the purchase. 2 if I had to pay for it separately.

Pros: High in dash recessed look top pocket huge bottom pocket

Cons: poor fit and finish recess blocks access to corner buttons a bit

The kit fit into the opening of 2008 Mazda 3 perfectly but shifts a small amount.

Pros: Fits well and the plastic colors matched.

Cons: The stereo din moves in and out slightly, applying too much pressure to stereo buttons causes this. Instructions could have been better, specifically on installing the top pocket.

Does the job

Matt M. from Valdosta, GA on 10/11/2014

2004 Mazda 3

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have this kit installed in a 2004 mazda 3. The large main piece is dead on, a perfect fit for the car (sometimes I forget it isn't a stock part). Because I went from the large factory stereo to a single DIN stereo, some of the excess space got replaced with pockets. While the new pockets are nice to have and work fine, they are a little on the cheap side and don't line up quite perfectly (which can be seen once finished). Could probably be fixed with a little extra time and some epoxy.

Pros: Super easy installation. Fits perfectly. Any lost space is made useful.

Cons: Non-standard pockets are cheaply made and it shows after installation.

Fits like a glove

Crutchfield customer from Staten Island New York on 10/27/2013

2005 Mazda 3

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Ordered a new stereo for my 2005 Mazda 3, and added this kit with that purchase. Fits great. Only for stars for clarity of instructions, it's 2013 people there has to be a better way to write these manuals clearly. As always when you take into consideration the total purchase Crutchfield is always the best value, and for customer service no one beats them. Had an issue installing the radio I purchased and called at 11:00pm est. Not only was there actually a person there to help who had knowledge of the product, but they also knew which product I was calling about and all my info based solely on my phone number. With one call they have made a customer for life

Pros: As good look and fit as can be expected in an aftermarket dash kit. Customer Service department. Great price.

Cons: The instructions assume basic knowledge of radio installation. Leaves out important info like how an out of the box deck will already have a trim plate that needs to be removed etc. Hard plastic actually matches finish of my vehicle but could easily dress down a nicer interior

mazda 3 dash kit

Tomicus from Fishers, IN on 6/11/2013

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The quality of the dash kit is fine, the problem is - it doesn't fit. I wish I had known this before I ordered, but I've never had a problem with Crutchfield products before. The top trim piece won't fit flush against the unit and the bottom won't attach to the temperature control section so it sticks out about 1/4". You can push the bottom flush, but as soon as you let go, it moves back out. Basically, it looks terrible.

Pros: The material looks like good quality except for the pockets.

Cons: The fit of the kit is terrible. So much so that there really should be a warning for Mazda 3 owners.

Good Kit

Rob from Kona, HI on 3/27/2013

2005 Mazda 3

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

After having the Scoche kit for many years it eventually broke at several key areas that hold the unit in. It also was not wide enough to fit the 1/2 Din EQ that I wanted to install. Ordered the Metra kit and it arrived promptly. Crutchfield has always had the fastest shipping and packages their products sufficiently to avoid damage. This new kit fit nicely for my needs and looks cleaner than the Scoche kit. The plastic better matches the interior of my 05 Mazda 3. It also fit the EQ I wanted to install nicely, I just had to drill holes for the power wires and RCA's. The top pocket did not fit perfectly but it really rounds out the clean look of the kit.

Pros: Sturdy design, fit my dash decently, matches interior trim, pocket is wide and deep enough to fit 1/2 DIN EQ!

Cons: Directions could be better, minor fitment issues

Jeremy from Seattle, WA on 3/1/2013

Crutchfield included this kit with the purchase of an Alpine stereo deck. I was initially concerned that this kit would force me to remove the LCD screen that comes stock with the Mazda 3, but went ahead and fully installed it anyway. I've been satisfied with my decision ever since. This kit forms a couple extra pockets for storing charge cables, cases, etc. Perfect fit in my 2006 Mazda 3 Hatchback!

Pros: Perfect fit. Can't beat FREE!

Cons: Nothing

Does the Job

DanH from Boston, MA on 6/3/2012

2008 Mazda 3

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Product fits and is easy to install. Some people have complained that the plastic is cheap looking. In my opinion, the main plastic piece that houses the aftermarket head unit and the larger storage unit below does not look terrible. It mostly matches the surrounding OEM plastic of the mazda dash. The top piece, which replaces the LED screen, however, is a crappy-looking shiny black plastic. I found that pocket to be quite useless, actually, and simply reinstalled the LED screen. It only provides me with the ambient temperature outside and the fan information (gas mileage information and radio station display not active), but I prefer the look. Reinstalling this requires some modifications to some of the plastic provided in the kit and to the car as well. There are guides available on mazda forums. Overall good product and reasonable price.

Pros: Fits, looks are passable, storage is useful, easy to install

Cons: Top plastic storage part appears cheaper than the rest

Kit fits well in 08 Mazda 3.

Pros: Works and fits well with an older Alpine Deck. No gaps between kit and car trim.

Cons: I had to remove the kit a few times and the bottom clips came off. I would advise to put them on when you are completely sure it will be the last time you're taking it off. But nonetheless, the kits still fits well without them.

This is not a bad dash kit considering it was free. The only issue I had with it was the the fact that the directions are not very good.

First off, the instructions that came with this kit are terrible. The kit itself matches the interior just fine, but it does leave a gap on the bottom. It can be fixed if you want to create your own notch in the kit. If you want to keep your factory LCD, good luck understanding the instructions. I searched the internet for hours and finally figured out you need to mount it to the air conditioning vents.

My only complaint is that the small pocket that goes above the stereo (replaces the factory LED screen) had a slight curve in what should have been a straight part. A factory trim piece attaches to this pocket, so the factory trim piece gets pulled up but the curvature.

I put this into my 05 mazda3i, The Kit looks great and i dont feel it is "cheap looking" at all. I had a few leftover peices which confused my slightly during installation, but hey, it was my first time installing an aftermarket head unit. I recommend this to anyone, it matches the dash just fine.

Great for the price, but a little cheap looking

I installed this kit in my 2006 Mazda3 5-door with a new Pioneer deck and have the manual (not automatic) A/C controls below the stereo. The kit has the same texture as the OEM dashboard and looks great but the panel gaps are noticeable. You can't beat the price (mine was free) and if you don't mind a bit of the cheap look, go for it. The sound from any new stereo beats the stock one.

Installation Note: If your vehicle is equipped with manual climate controls, the factory-installed driver information display won't work anymore. You will need to use the supplied pocket to fill the space above the newly installed aftermarket radio.
