Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
At first I was disappointed when I discovered that the package contained two left brackets instead of a left and a right. However, a quick call to the 800-number for Crutchfield customer service and without any questions a replacement arrived the next day! I read some other reviews for this talking about how it didn't fit, and I'm pretty sure they misread the instructions. The 5-sided plastic box is for a cubby to take up the space of the second DIN in a 2-DIN install, not a sleeve for the stereo. The installation was quite easy. I found using a Dremel tool an easy way to cut away the extra trim tabs for my daughter's Volvo, but it would have been almost as easy with a box knife or clippers. The finished job looked almost as good as the factory radio installation (in fact, if the dash kit had been the same grey color as the dash, no one would ever be able to know where the Volvo ended and my installation began!
Pros: - Simple, easy directions. - Lots of options for installing. - Provided cubby box adds utility to the installation of a single DIN radio in a double DIN hole. - Excellent customer service means you're not left out in the cold when there's a problem.
