A fit that needs more engineering

William from ANCHORAGE, AK on 9/8/2019

2002 Toyota Camry

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

The part fits, somewhat. The top rear mounting holes line up, however, the arms of the item that reach to the car bolt holes need a notch in the arm to allow the holes to line up. The car has a rib that rides on the top ridge of the bracket that hits the mounting bracket. A relief has to be put into the arm so that the bolt plates sit flat, else the alignment it off and bolts cannot be seated 100%.

Somewhat flimsy but gets the job done. Make sure it is lined up correctly before installing the dash trim as this unit doesn't have exact mounting holes.

Pros: Gets the job done.

Cons: Flimsy and no screws holding it together if you go with a double DIN unit.

It was a perfect fit my for 2005 Toyota Camry, but the bezel has a bit of flimsiness to it. It looks great, just like a factory fit.

Pros: Gives a great factory look and makes it easy to install.

Cons: Has a flimsy feel when touched. Could be made to be more sturdy.

Metra 99-8231 dash adapter

Ben from Nipomo, CA on 5/7/2018

2005 Toyota Camry

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

The Metra 99-8231 replaces metal pieces in the dash, (on the sides of the stereo), with plastic pieces. They seem a bit flimsy, but you have to use them, because they hold the trim piece around the front of the stereo in place. I modified mine, so that I could use both the Metra plastic pieces and the original metal pieces. (it worked, is about all I can say).

Pros: Provide a means to put a trim piece around the front of the stereo.

Cons: Flimsy supports. Cut away most of the support plastic so that I could retain the original metal supports for the radio.

Seems flimsy at first, but, after attached to the radio, holds together OK. I did not need the pocket so I don't know how well it fits. Other reviews mention the lack of metal fasteners for the trim after removing the OEM radio bracket....I do not see this being an issue. Looks good in the dash and......its a great price!

Pros: Fits well

Cons: A little flimsy

Crutchfield customer from Tampa, FL on 4/27/2017

2005 Toyota Camry

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

Quite disappointed in all of the aftermarket kits. My dash attached to the old radio no longer attaches, leaving multiple points not attached in my Camry. Going from a metal mount to a plastic bracket was very disappointing. I have looked everywhere and no one makes an OEM metal bracket that would attach to an aftermarket kit that looks halfway decent. At least it looks pretty good as long as you don't pull on the dash which unfortunately comes apart too easy now.

Does what it needs to. Poorly.

Pros: It holds the head unit in place.

Cons: Cheap plastic, poor fit, can't put the pocket above the head unit so the unit sticks out and the pocket is recessed.

Looks good after install in 2003 Toyota Camry. The only downside was the screws were difficult to screw into the side of the pioneer stereo I used with this product. I'm not sure if that was more of a problem with the deck than this kit, but it only slowed me down a little with the install. Overall very satisfied.

I even gave Crutchfield the wrong information about my factory radio and the kit still worked with only a tiny bit more work for me!

Flimsy cheap plastic

N/A from New Hampshire on 6/24/2015

2005 Toyota Camry

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

Dash kit worked just fine, but the plastic is very thin and it leaves a small gap on the bottom. Also, Toyota had some very sturdy metal brackets off the factory radio, I wish they reused those. it would make it harder for someone to just come in and rip the unit out of the dash (cannot use the cage in this kit and you bolt flimsy plastic in)

Pros: Works

Cons: Not as flush as I would like, but cant complain about free. Small gap on the bottom. Wish they reused the sturdy metal brackets for better support and security.

It is a bit flimsy. The first one I received was actually broken, despite the fact that it was packaged very well. (Crutchfield shipped a replacement immediately) The plastic is just very thin. It does fit the dash well but as other's have noted, it does leave a bit of a gap at the bottom.

Pros: Fits well and allows for installation of both Single and Double DIN stereo

Crutchfield customer from Colorado on 4/1/2015

The mounting unit was flimsy, the instructions were incomplete and a pain to follow, and I was missing screws in my installation kit. Took me about an hour longer than it would have otherwise if the instructions had been a bit more precise. I'm not a car fanatic by any means but I was able to put this together with the help of two friends in about 2 hours.

Pros: Fits the size of my vehicle, looks pretty sharp when finished.

Cons: The mount and faceplates themselves are in fact very flimsy.

It works well on a 2004 Camry. It doesn't fit exactly the same way as the stock radio the way it snaps into the OEM faceplate however once installed it looks good and works well.

2003 Camry XLE - Easy install, Good Fit

OldMan from Tennessee on 5/31/2014

2003 Toyota Camry

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

I used this to install a double DIN JVC receiver in a 2003 Camry XLE. It was a little difficult to clip the brackets on the front frame, but I figured it out. It was a perfect fit. The upper and lower "bars" are a little flimsy, but it will suffice. The quality of construction isn't as good as that of the radio rackets and bezel that was originally in the vehicle. The stereo and this bezel look very snazzy.

Pros: Good fit. Looks good. Relatively easy to install (except brackets).

Cons: Top and bottom pieces a little flimsy.

Good enough to get the radio installed. But not outstanding.

Pros: Has all the parts you need. And with some extra work I was able to make an OEM looking install.

Cons: The brackets fit, but not perfect, and they were plastic. I am picky, but I commute in my car 50 miles a day, so I can't stare every morning at a radio that vibrates, is crooked, or does not look OEM. So I reused the Toyota (quality metal) brackets. Also, the mount screws were ~1/8" too short. I also had to grind off a little plastic to make the bezel fit. Fell short of my expectations, but not terrible.

Decent. Not perfect

A little flimsy around the bottom edge if the radio. It bows and you can see between it and the chassis of the radio. I can live with it but mg OCD is a little tuned into it

Pros: Ease of install

Cons: Flimsy in spots

kit worked well but there was a little gap around the radio and the adapter, once the install was complete you could not see the gaps so I am happy with the overall purchase

Pros: price, ease of install. loved the free downloads on the actual installation.

Cons: be careful handling prior to installing into dash the top and bottom of the adapter are quite thin when installing a double din radio

The unit matches the curvature of the dash fairly well, however there is a gap on the bottom, and at the top right corner. The bottom edge feels rather flimsy, and I was worried about it breaking. To the casual observer it doesn't look too bad, and it does allow you to put in a single or double DIN stereo. The factory original color is a bit off, but that is probably due to fading of the original dash.

Pros: Allows single or double DIN stereos, matches the curvature of the dash

Cons: gaps, flimsy plastic,

Q
Would this fit a single-DIN radio?
[ Zachary  Feb 16, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
Thanks for your question. I'm sorry, no. This kit is for a Double DIN receiver which is approximately 4" tall. Single DIN receivers are approximately 2" tall. If you need further information I would recommend to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
