Poorly Designed Side Brackets
2000 Acura 3.5RL
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
2000 Acura RL w/o Nav. Poorly designed side brackets. I modified OEM metal brackets by trimming the plastic tabs storage bin beneath the Pioneer; and drilled holes in the OEM bracket to mount the radio and supporting storage bin. This allowed brackets to be secured with OEM 10mm bolts on the side and made a solid fit in the upper console holding he head unit and A/C control unit.
Pros: Decent face mount
Cons: Plastic side brackets were way to flimsy to adequately hold equipment and upper console in place. Disaster waiting to happen!
