Looks great, difficult uninstall/prep
2008 Honda Fit Sport
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
2008 Honda Fit Sport. Installed with double DIN unit. It looks good and everything's snug. The install was easy but uninstalling the original was not. The hard part was removing the A/C controls from the back of the panel: this required removing 6 large phillips-head screws screwed in very tightly and because the control cables are still attached when you do this (disconnecting the control cables is not in the instructions and I can see why-it's not clear how you'd do it without damaging them), you have limited access to them, even with a stubby driver (which is recommended). In fact, for the last screw I cut its plastic mount out of the old panel with tin shears because I was starting to strip the screw head. If I had to do it over I might buy a "close-quarters" ratcheting screwdriver. Also, the final trim faceplate is so tight the snaps won't catch, but I just cut them off and it works fine.
Pros: Looks good, fits good.
Cons: Difficult removal of old unit, which you really have to get right for the new install to work.
