Scosche CR1294B Dash Kit

Anonymous from Reno, NV on 8/28/2017

2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cargo
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not a perfect fit for my 2016 Mercedes Sprinter. I had to trim the mounting tabs for it to fit, and I cannot get the cover trim to entirely snap back into place. I assume that this dash kit was designed for the stock stereo and not the upgraded one, or something changed in the mounting of the 2016 Sprinter compared to earlier models. Furthermore, the instructions as to exactly how to mount the side plates--which direction, which orientation, to which holes on the cover plate and the stereo certainly affects the overall installation and fit, and these additional details should be provided in the instructions with this dash kit.

Pros:

Cons:

Kits for 2008+ models will fit - this one is overly complex.

This dash kit is overkill. It requires you to remove a piece of plastic from inside the dash (Scosche call it the "Radio Delete" plastic). That is not necessary using several of the other kits. Scosche's CR1292B will fit 2008+ Sprinters and it slots in on top of the "Radio Delete" plastic with less requirement to rip your dash apart. Having said that, this kit works fine if you follow the instructions. We had to grind part of the central lip recess away to get our head unit to fit flush with the front of the panel, but that isn't necessarily Scosche's problem.

2012 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cargo
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fits my MB 2012 Cargo Sprinter Van, seems flimsy, but gets more stable once everything is installed and tightened into the dash. I did not have to modify this face plate for the install. There is another, very sturdy caddy into which the factory unit installed which must be removed. It seems counter intuitive. Thought I'd have to break out the Dremel tool, but removing the factory housing, this one fits in perfectly. Not entirely sure why others felt the need for making mods on this.

Pros: Looks good. Fits opening.

Cons: Missing some screws.

Necessary but not perfect

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not a direct fit for my 2016 mercedes sprinter 2500 2din.

Pros: Needed it, see cons.

Cons: After removing 4 tabs and cutting into the face I still need to cut more off to sit flush with factory molding. This is a 2016 mercedes sprinter 2500 cargo with 2din. Removal of the 2 inner upper and 2 lower outer tabs made it sit flush in cavity, additional sanding and cutting around the edges about 3 hours trying to get it flush. Still need to cut about 1cm x1cm from the top so the last 2 clips will sit flush like factory unit did.

2013 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cargo
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This unit needed major modifications. Be prepared to use a Dremel to grind and cut to make it look good. It took me several hours to make it look right in my 2013 MB Sprinter 2500. But it does look nice when time is taken to ensure it all fits well. Three stars for final looks. I deducted two stars for having to do such heavy modifications. This was not a "cut off not needed tabs" modification, but nearly a complete rework.

Cons:

Poor fit for 2016 MB Sprinter

Teal from Leavenworth, WA on 4/17/2017

2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Passenger
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Terrible fit for 2016 MB Sprinter. I ended up carving material off of both the dash kit and the factory dash plate in order to make it work (sort of). This is not what I expected from Crutchfield.

Pros: The color matches.

Cons: Terrible fit that requires carving on both the dash kit and factory dash plate of 2016 MB Sprinter.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works Great! Options for single or double din. Looks great. simple to install. The Crutchfield Team suggests all of the additional installation parts you may need including Metra XSVI-1784-NAV, Metra Electronics 40-VW10 Factory Antenna to Aftermarket Radio Adapter , and Metra Axxess ASWC-1 Universal Steering Wheel Control. Crutchfield offers these in a simple to use kit with our without SWC. We buy these for our company vehicles and they make installation extremely easy.

Pros: We had no issues with fit or function.

Cons: none

Get out your snips.

Got it to fit, but requires significant modification for a 2016 Sprinter. Looks nice, but a PITB to get the fit right.

Nice quality, but does not fit 2013 Sprinter. Did a bunch of mods, but no go. I used another of lower quality, sadly. Crutchfield was great to work with.
