Does what it needs to for double-DIN install

Crutchfield customer from Spring, TX on 7/2/2019

2001 Mazda Miata

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

Functional, seems to hold in place, but it is designed to fit all manner of head units, so there are a few things to mention. 1) the cross-bar in the double-DIN bezel must be removed, and it will require some cleanup and a little fine file work to make it as unnoticeable as possible; 2) the side pieces are the same, relatively soft plastic, and you will need to use screws from your original or replacement unit to attach them. They need to be relatively tight to keep the unit from moving during installation, but really tightening the screws will deform the pieces and probably some risk of breakage. 3) It does click in once everything is together, and Crutchfield does advise that it may not come out well if you need it to. (I actually used a thin spatula successfully because with all the almost-in/out stuff I did adjusting the SLC-4 levels I managed to dislodge the microphone plug, apparently. (Don't be like me, but make sure to re-test *everything* before final install, not just the last thing you were working on.)

Pros: Hey, it works!

Cons: It is all plastic, and you need a little TLC to remove the center bar cleanly if you using it for a double-DIN head unit. Crutchfield advises it may not be removable in one piece, so it may be single use. Proceed accordingly with your install.

Too Confusing For Me

Brian from Medway, MA on 1/11/2019

2005 Mazda Tribute

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

I am glad this kit was a free add on to my order. The kit comes with multiple pieces to accommodate different installs. My problem was the instructions were confusing and there was a statement on the instructions that said "Once the radio clicks in, it may not be able to be removed without dashboard disassembly." I want to be able to remove my new radio easily like my stock radio was. I was able to use my new radio's housing which allows the radio to be removed.

Pros: Kit accommodates different radios Was included with the radio purchase

Cons: Confusing instructions May have to disassemble the dash in the future if you use the kit Not necessary for my install

It does the thing! Looks fine in my 99 Miata. Seems to have installed securely. No jiggle or rattles. The radio does have a 2-3 mm flushness mismatch on the front of my JVC unit, but I am picky. Most people immediately comment how factory the install looks.

Nice looking, but not good for Sony touchscreen units

Shaun from Marshfield, MA on 2/3/2018

2003 Mazda Miata

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

This is a nice looking mount, but if you have a Sony XAV100 it's not ideal. The screw openings hold the head unit just fine until you have it installed and order on the screen. This is due to the openings for the screws having nothing to push against the head unit will slowly sink into the dash while the mount stays put. I'm trying to find an alternative mount or have someone 3D print new side panels specifically for this unit.

Audie from Alliance, NE on 8/29/2017

2003 Mazda Tribute

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

For all who are saying the install kit is cheap, and should only send 1...first off, Crutchfield sends this to you for free, and shipped free. Of course it's not the best quality, and maybe a little deceiving. But they don't have to send you a free kit either. If installed correctly, you'll see that the integrity of the material is in the shape, and works with other parts to become stronger. They wouldn't send you an item, that could potentially damage the vary item you purchased from them, only to return it all, and or product insurance claim. I think its great that they do this, and more companies could take notes from this one. Thank you Crutchfield.

Pros: FREE, dual optional, color match, fits perfect.

Cons: If you're not happy, just buy a different one

This thing sucks. They had to send me 3 of these dash kits for one to get to me that wasn't broken before I even opened the box. Unfortunately, it's the only practical option out there for a lot of people. Feels cheap, looks cheap, is cheap. Not as snug as one would expect either. I don't know why 0 stars is not a selectable option right now.

Works well, except if you have a double din because you have to cut the bar out of the middle and it's isn't as clean looking.

Pros: Does it's job Fits receiver well

Cons: Have to cut out middle bar for double din, not clean It's snapped in place but it's just a little weird.

Crash from San Luis Obispo, CA on 10/16/2016

2002 Mazda Miata

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

Does what it's made to do I guess. You have to cut out the black plastic in the middle if you're installing a Double Din head unit system. I only needed one of the many supplied pieces to get it in my car. So you're left with a bunch of extra unnecessary pieces. It was also a pain getting it to set in my dash, but that could just be my inexperience. Otherwise, looks great and does what it's supposed to do.

Pros: Looks great when implemented

Cons: Too much extra stuff, hard to place in dash

It worked and made the new receiver easy to install. But it is cheaply made and the cubby has holes in it. I'm afraid something small can slip right into the dash. It includes parts for both a single and double DIN setup

Pros: Cost

Cons: Holes in compartment, okay finish on plastic, not sure if it will break if I ever have to dissassemble

It fit in the double-DIN opening in my car. It snapped in place after a few tries. Looks clean.

Pros: My replacement stereo is single-DIN, so I like that this turns the extra slot into a storage cubby. I can fit my phone and USB cable in there.

Cons: The snap fit of the unit in the dash opening did not inspire confidence that everything would remain securely in place. Time will tell. I'm not sure why the storage cubby has holes in the back.

Dash Kit 2003 Mazda Tribute

Farris from Santa Cruz, CA on 2/3/2016

2003 Mazda Tribute

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

a huge waste of plastic! The pieces needed for my vehicle was the Double din, and I was sent enough to install 2 cars! Also the double din piece was not good quality I actually went to a stereo installer to get a better kit.

Pros:

Cons: Should only send what is needed. i.e. for double din...send double din only...single din...same. Double din had a cross bar that needed to be cut out leaving marks where it was attached. side pieces were hard to fit and hold as the face piece only connected via some hooks.

This installation kit was unbelievably easy to use and to install in our 2002 Mazda Protege. The kit fit perfectly and looks great with our new stereo. No extra hardware was needed. Only a matter of pulling the OEM factory radio out and slipping this one in to hold the new stereo very securely. Comes complete for both Single and Double DIN for any type radio and a cubby for my sunglasses. This kit makes my new radio look like a factory installation. Nice!

2002 Mazda Protoge Double Din

Lucas from Kansas City, MO on 10/3/2014

2002 Mazda Protege

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

The side brackets did not line up with my screw holes so I took a dremel tool and made my own (probably ended up better that way). The dimension vertically was spot on but horizontally was about 1/16 in to wide. Had to cut out the extra space from the original mounting in the car (behind the trim). It just slid into place and snapped when correctly positioned. All in all was really easy to work with and I am pleased with the outcome. I would recommend that anyone who uses this to make sure that you get at least 2 heavy screws on each side due to how light the plastic is.

Pros: Fit was good. Once it was in place it seems to hold together very solid.

Cons: Holes did not line up to stereo. (I was using Alpine CDE-W235BT, able to create my own though). Plastic was rather soft, wish it was metal.

Assembling the pieces around the head unit is like building a house of cards. It's amazing that this rig holds together when it's completed, but it actually does.

Pros: Unit seems to be securely mounted in the dash.

Cons: Surround face texture does not match anything in the dash. Generic holes do not match head unit well. Plastic is poor quality that you are expected to cut if you are installing a Double-DIN.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The kit worked very well to install a double din stereo into our 2001 Mazda Protege. The kit simply snaps into the sides using friction. The deck can easily be removed, I was hoping for the kit to utilize the pin style removal the original deck had. If Crutchfield says the deck is to deep and that the rear bracket will have to be removed, the bracket does have to be cut out utilizing a tool like a sawzall and then a screw must be pulled out of the ducting. It only took an extra ten minutes but I was hoping to remove the bracket instead of cutting it out.

Pros: Quick, easy install that made the installation flawless.

Cons: Only snaps in the sides, very little security for the new deck.

Overall a nice product to allow installation flexibility. However, the way in which the front bezel connects to the side tabs isn't very good. Have had to pull the radio back out because the clips came out from one side of the bezel and the radio pushed into the dash. Had to shim out the clips to force them to lock into the bezel.

Pros: Flexibility for various installs

Cons: Tabs that connect to front Bezel do not make good connection and Radio can push in unless you shim the clips out to ensure they catch.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This was a perfect fit in my 2005 Mazda Tribute. I had one small issue but figured it out. I forgot to plug in the external mic for my bluetooth phone integration. So I had to take this back out. I ended up using 2 small flat tools, like putty knives, on the top of it. If you need to take this out, look at the picture of it and see where the tabs are, put one tool in just above the top of the kit in the center, it will bend down slightly, slide it to the left until you feel the tab and work it above the tab to release it. Leave it in place and slide the other tool in the same starting position and slide it to the right from the center to release the second tab. Then the whole kit will rotate forward and in turn release the bottom tabs. Then just slide it out.

Pros: Perfect fit, nice look.

Cons: Semi-difficult to remove from dash, but figured it out.

I agree with RobertoP, Seattle on Monday, March 19, 2012 "The kit requires that you cut and smooth a bar that divides the double din kit. It would be better that the kit be explicit to the double DIN installation without needing modification. The side brackets did not snap into the radio surround as they should and the holes did not align well with the radio. The instructions were incorrect about the radio rear support and did not mention having to disassemble the exiting radio bracket to install." I wasted some time messing with it before callling the tech line and finding out I didn't need the rear support. It doesn't snap correctly in the opening at the top.

Pros: Looks nice and fits well

Cons: Instructions not correct and the top snaps will not stay.

The kit does not mount firmly to the radio or the dash. Within two days the radio was falling out of the mount.

Scott B from Austin, TX on 5/23/2011

Verified customer (What's this?)

This is mostly oriented to using a single DIN device (or two) to replace a double DIN device in the dash. This is the exact oposite of what I was doing, and so ordering this part was a mistake. If you are installing one single, hight device, or two single height devices, this adapter will probably work fine. (When installing a single device, the second opening becomes a nice location for storing CDs or other small items. If you are installing a double DIN device, like I did, don't order this part.

I used the double din trim kit in a 2003 Mazda Protege5 with the Pioneer AVH-3200BT. The trim piece fits perfectly with both the car and the head unit. It fits well and does what it's supposed to. The plastic look of the trim isn't the most appealing but that will vary depending on what style head unit you are installing. Overall, two thumbs up.

Better than the Metra but still flawed

SamM from Richmond, VA on 9/10/2010

2003 Mazda Protege5

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

I had the Metra version of this with my last head unit, and I feel the Scoche wins on being a bit more substantial and having a removable back plate to the bottom pocket that makes running rear-connected auxiliary and USB cables a bit easier to handle cleanly by drilling holes in the back plate. As should be expected, it snapped in very cleanly and the head unit fits snugly into it. Installation was very easy after I realized that super-gluing a couple of shims to the kit provided perfect stability for the head unit. The big issue with this is that the trim ring is precariously connected to the body by four minuscule tabs and it's prone to snap right out when driving over train tracks or minor potholes. This is second time super glue came in handy when installing the kit. Granted, the Metra has the same problem, but I'd like to see one of the companies employ a better solution. The minor issue, like nearly all aftermarket dash houses, is that it's ugly. Then again, since it was free I can't really complain.

Mr. Mechanic I am not! Although my father was a great mechanic (his career) I inherited none of his skill. Nevertheless, the Mazda Kit was a snap to install. The only problem was getting the radio out, the double din extractor, did not work; not the kit's problem, Mazda put the clips in like iron. I finally, using extractor and screwdrivers, got it to release. After that it was easy. Probably the clips holding the radio into the cage could be stronger. However, I screwed up and bent them putting radio in. I bent them back, but radio not as secure as I would like. However, so far not a movement (and a Miata moves!). So, I am pleased. I had a large hole to fill, and install the bluetooth microphone, and the finished product looks professional! I can't tell you how well you did on this one, because most things I "fix" I break!

Kit is useless for double din radio in mazda

kalish from Albertson, ny on 1/11/2009

2003 Mazda Tribute

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

The kit is absolutely useless for a double din installation. The first issue is that the side mounts are not attached to the face plate, but merely slot it place. The second issue is that there is no back or bottom support for the radio. So, when you put it in place, the radio simply falls into the dash leaving the frame in place. Took much customization to build a support bracket for the radio. Should be removed as a supported Crutchfield item.

The only good thing about this product is that it was free with my stereo. I usually dont write bad reviews about products but this thing is soooooooooooooooooooooooo frustrating i had to. The stereo pops out of the bracket with the slightest bump, and its extremly difficult to put it back in place, and lastly why does it have the plastic bar going across the middle that you have to cut away, cause when you do cut it, it leaves very noticable imperfections where you made the cuts!!!!!!! all in all, im pretty comfortable saying you'd be better off if you just use some duct tape to scure the radio.... okay im kidding about the tape thing but for real though DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT, especially if you have a 2003 mazda protege and a pioneer fh-p8000bt

I was sceptical about buying this kit, considering all the negative comments about "structural integrity" , but was very pleased with the product. It is solid and the integrity comes down to the installer. A simple strap support bolted to the radio, and to the center storage cavity, and then to the cars dashboard support structure makes for a very simple, strong and clean install.

Not Up To Expectations

Got this with the Clarion DUZ385SAT I was installing in my '02 Miata LS. While the appearance portion compliments both the OEM dash and HU, I'm very displeased with the lack of structural integrity of the kit. A two-year-old could rip this thing out in a heartbeat! Why didn't they try to at least incorporate the OEM security clips?

Terrible for a Mazda Tribute

Absolutely terrible dash kit if you want to install a double din radio or monitor. There is nothing at all to mount it to inside the dash of an 04 Mazda Tribute! Might no be so bad with the single din w/ pocket option, but I just needed the double din frame and mount. Thought since it was vehicle specific it would actually mount inside the dash....

I hate this kit

2002 Mazda Protege

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have a Mazda 2002 Protege. First of all, I couldn't use the part with the bin, no way to keep it in place. I ended up using the other part, but it came with no screws to attach the radio, so I had to get my own screws. Once that went into place, now I have a open space in the dash that I have to figure out how to hide, since the radio I bought (Kenwood) only fits the top half.

Worst ever

I installed a double din stereo and every time I take off it pops out. Every time I hit a bump the kit frame pops off. Unfortunately with the car and stereo I have installed this is the only option. Several installers warned me not to buy a Metra brand product for installation, but I just couldn't find anything else. If you can avoid this product, please do so.

Works well

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This product made installing my single din radio quick and painless in the place of my factory double din unit. My only complaint is the storage bin under the radio is of little use. The bin has no lip and it does not angle down towards the back of the bin. Because of this, items placed in the bin slide out when the car is accelerating.

Pretty good product. Had no difficulties installing kit & radio. Did not have problems like other customers had with the other installation kit. No rattles or vibrations heard from kit so far. Delivery from Crutchfield was pretty quick, I was impressed.

Will this work to install a Pioneer FH-X700BT in a 2002 Mazda Protege 5?
[ Papa Smurf  Oct 21, 2018 ]

The answer is yes, as long as your car came from the factory with a double DIN opening.

Sorry but I'm not sure. Just make sure to read the instructions that they email because the instructions in the package made no sense for my CR-V.

Q
How do you use the rear support? I have a single din pioneer deck and never figure out where to screw it in.
[ G  Jun 30, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
I'm not sure if it's necessary with a single DIN, but I've used it with a double DIN before. The stereos I've used never came with a screw that fits so I had to buy a separate screw, to get it to work. Fortunately, the screw size was the same as one I had on my TV mount, so I was able to find a match pretty easily. I drilled a hole in the tip of the plastic support that came with the bezel to put the screw through. It's purpose is to keep the stereo from tilting up or down since it would otherwise only be held in place by the plastic clips on the bezel.
