Average Customer Review(s):
Just what I needed, fits li glove.
A must have portion of this installation! I love the way it made my car's interior look! So professional.
This was not a very good fit. The lines extended past factory and the top air vent does not clip in anymore.
Pros: Fit a double digits. Easily
Cons: Fit was not very goodCrutchfield response on 6/21/2017 Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to Brandon to help him further. We'll either help him get the kit installed correctly, or help him return it for an exchange or refund.
Pros: Instructions were easy enough and it went pretty much flawless
Cons: Plastic seemed easy to scratch
the finish is great, and the fit was BAD! i had to files down the square where the AC button was cuz it was stuck pushing it in. the android head doesnt fit well at all and just kinda hangs un the back. the vents in the center are barely usable now as it kinda just falls out. i think i just got a bad one. you mileage may vary
Good match to factory panel just not as thick of material and should come with extra plastic clips original were metal.
Pros: Good solution
Cons: Thin cheap made plastic clips
This is a very nicely made adapter. I used it to install a double din Kenwood radio. It looks as good as the original factory panel.
This dash kit was super easy to swap everyone from the stock one into the new dash and fit the exact same. The radio was super easy to install in this dash too!! couldnt be any more happy with this purchase!!
Everything was great easy to install
I used this product to install a JVC double DIN CD player in an 2009 ford focus. The fit and finish was great with a factory look and feel.
Pros: Factory look and feel
Fit is very good. There is a small gap in the bezel that surrounds the radio. The attachment clips are flimsy and could break if you removed the frame. Once installed, the piece looks great. Instruction from Crutchfield allowed me to save over $300 in installation cost.
Pros: Color matched. Easy to attach radio and climate controls to the new frame
Cons: flimsy attachment tabs. Be careful during the installation to avoid breaking or bending the attachment tabs
It was a real pain to get the stock part out but the new parts work well. Not a perfect fit though. It is just slightly off on the bottom but for the price it wont be perfect.
Pros: Color matches well. Just works.
Cons: Small gap in lower part. Not a perfect fit.
Looks good, fits ok. There is a little gap on the air vents but not very noticable
Pros: Looks good, just like the factory panel
Cons: air vents fit loose and have a little gap on 2011 ford focus
Once I got the old one out, this went in rather nicely. Good fit. Looks good.
Pros: Good fit
This product fit well and was easy to install. Looks just like the factory panel just with a different stereo in it.
Pros: Looks great, fit perfectly
Overall the fit was good, however: the plastic mounting clips at the base didn't grab and hold like the ones that came with the car. The screws at the base are whats holding it in place. The surface of the Ford Focus In-dash Receiver Kit, has a ruff feel to it, unlike the polished smooth feel of the one that came with the car.
Pros: Fits and looks good
Cons: Mounting clips & surface smoothness
Matches interior as original
Pros: Matches interior and easy install.
Cons: could have more and better clips like factory had and a better fit at the vents, finish seems rough and may scratch easy. Will see how it holds up.
Kit arrived as scheduled, installation was fairly easy, fits fairly well (a few gaps, such as under the middle air vent) a few scuffs on the front face and the pocket. Other than that, good buy.
This was my only option to add after market parts to my car. Everything fits nicely into this dash kit. However, it scratches if you blow on it which is awful. It does install fairly easy for a first time dash install. The air vents don't fit in they snap and semi lock but that's it. Most of the dash even with the arrow snap pieces its still semi loose fitting. In order to use the metal sleeve that comes with a cd player you have to do some modification to it and the kit itself (cutting, come grinding) otherwise you have to use the built in plastic mounts which are impossible to remove without taking the dash a apart. Not to mention the cd player is recessed quit a bit... Still a good solution.
its the only way to mount an aftermarket stereo in a 2008-2010 ford focus I tried other kits [ Joshua Jun 06, 2017 ]
so i could make the dash install look great [ john Apr 04, 2017 ]
Looks similar to factory. I hope it looks good. [ Darin Jan 31, 2017 ]
It is the only way the receiver I bought will fit in my car. [ Michael Nov 28, 2016 ]
You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you. [ Krissy Feb 02, 2014 ] Staff
