Don't expect too much...

2004 Mazda Tribute
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

So this box is in my big box of Crutchfield goodies, so I rip it open. Doesn't look like much but it functions. Not as easy to put in as the directions lead you to think. The "just drill two holes" part would be easy if you could remove the vacuum lines for the heat controler and atually get a drill in there. Good luck with that Needed a friend to help and a 12" phillips screwdriver or it was no dice. It doesn't look all that rigid for the money I spent. Hitting bumps with the truck, this thing bobs a bit. Also- if you put it where they tell you, it will lean to the left. Move it more center, not next to the right fastener hole. Good- but would feel better if it were $10-15 less. Sorry- but that's the truth...

Cons:

It does work in a 2005 Ford Escape Limited.. BUT

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this to have a solid mount for my XM Radio in my 2005 Ford Escape. This piece is set-up to be used on a 2001 - 2004 Ford Escape because they do not have a center console like the newer ones do (2005 and up). I did get it to work however in my 2005 Ford Escape. I mounted it on the right side of center dash. YES IT DOES BLOCK THE PASSENGER AIR BAG JUST A LITTLE BIT IF IT DOES DEPLOY.<BR><BR>Crutchfield sent me the RADIO EXTRACTION TOOLS where I needed the tool to remove the center dash pannel.<BR><BR>A 90 degree angle head drill will help since using a regular drill will result in the pilot holes and the mounting screws will be at about a 45 degree angle.<BR><BR>Even with the mounting screws at a 45 degree angle, it is a very solid mount and does not move.

Cons:

Good mounting solution with one minor gremlin

Mike from Wichita KS on 12/27/2006

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased this to mount a Sirius Sportster replay into a 2002 Ford Escape. The bracket works wonderfully, with one minor gremlin (and a caution!)<BR><BR>The gremlin - the included instructions are for installation into a Mazda Tribute, which is a clone of the Escape. The trick is that the Tribute bezel around the radio is one piece with the trim around the radio, while on the Escape it's a separate piece of trim. Get past that, and it's not that bad.<BR><BR>The caution -- once you get the bezel free (which includes all the switches for the fan, temp settings, etc) - on my car at least there wasn't much slack in the cables, and unhooking the connectors isn't all that intuitive. I'd make sure to have extra bandages available afterwards for scrapes and cuts. I went slow and figured things out (a real treat is the heat control, which is secured by tabs on three sides, and the fourth side has a gear link to the knob on the dash), just take your time. I was able to get sufficient access to install the bracket after unhooking only about half the wires (to the defrost, emergency flashers, accessory outlet, and temp control).
