Our take on the Metra 99-5720LDC Dash and Wiring Kit by Crutchfield's Charlie Pastorfield
The package includes a mounting kit (which allows you to install the new radio) and a wiring harness (which connects the new radio to the factory receiver's plug). You must remove the climate controls from the factory radio and attach them to the new kit.
Note: You must cut your dashboard in order to use this kit - the alterations will NOT be visible if the factory radio is reinstalled.
Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so. You can also call an Advisor for more information.

Thanks for submitting your review
Dash Kit: This kit is for installing an aftermarket receiver into 98-up Ford Escort/Mercury Tracer models with factory amplifiers. Three circular openings below the receiver slot accommodate the factory Fan Control switch, Temperature Control switch and Vent Control switch. The rear defrost switch is also located on the front of the kit. Attached to the rear of the kit are several wires, some of which plug into factory harnesses and others that need to be spliced into the wiring of the new receiver.
Power Adapter Plug: Attached to the back of the kit is a set of wires and the Power Adapter Plug. This gray 6-pin plug connects to a matching factory harness. Five 6" wires coming out of the plug need to be spliced to the new receiver's wiring harness.
Rear Defrost Wiring: Attached to the back of the kit is a 3-pin wiring plug for reconnecting the factory Rear Defrost wiring harness.
Speaker Wiring Adapter/Amplifier Bypass: Supplied with the kit is an 18' Speaker Wiring adapter that carries the output signal from the new receiver to the factory speaker harness, located in the rear of the vehicle. The bare ends of this harness need to be spliced to the speaker output wires of the new receiver. The other end contains the 8-pin Speaker Adaptor Plug which connects to the factory speaker harness after it has been disconnected from the amplifier output. The factory amplifier is bypassed and the speakers are powered by the new receiver.
Aftermarket Radio Connection: This Metra OEM Integration Kit features the following hardwire connections to your aftermarket head unit and factory system.
