Fits perfect in 2012 Altima
This adapter is perfect size for my altima. It fits just snug into the slot. Very clean install
Perfect fit on a 2011 Nissan Altima. I do recommend getting the plastic dashboard toolkit to remove the stock panels. The plastic on my dash has been deteriorated by the Florida sun and was gummy. The tools reduced further damage to the dash during removal.
Fits and matches the dashboard perfectly. I am very pleased with this product.
It did the job
Cons: Tab broke when I tried to install it
Fits perfect easy to assemble and put in
Came with everything it needs and looks factory
This.is.an.awesome.kit! I can't say enough about this kit other than, it's easy to install, looks factory, and is simple to put together.
Pros: Looks factory, goes in easy, love the extra "pocket"
Cons: Can take some finagling to get the "puzzle" the right way
Easy install. Fit perfectly. Looked great with new stereo.
Fit perfect. Even came with both heating pieces so that I could pick which one fit!
I love my dash kit and I put my new stereo in its awesome, now I'm looking for 2 amps help me if you can.
Pros: It's really basic and simple to install.
Cons: There is really none
This item came free with my last purchase from Crutchfield (a Pioneer audio unit with Bluetooth, 2-DIN) and it is a very funny mix of perfect for the 2007 Altima, and completely generic for the 2-DIN audio unit. The opening which the audio unit installs into is about 2mm to wide all the way around, leaving an air gap between the unit and the dash -- not at all like an OEM install. My solution was to build a spacing gasket from door trim to eliminate the gap. Overall it's a good item (and especially good when it comes free with your Crutchfield purchase!) but it is not a perfect solution. Note to Crutchfield: you should develop a gap-filling gasket for this dash kit especially for 2-DIN units. I spent $20 for a roll of vinyl door trim; I would have been crazy-happy to buy a gasket made for this application for $10 to make the final product look as good as the OEM unit I replaced.
Pros: Great Match to my 2007 Altima Dash
Cons: Loose fit around my 2-DIN audio unit; required some cobbling together of a gasket to fill air space between dash and audio unit.
This worked great for my 09 altima. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because it is all plastic and I was very paranoid that I was going to break it in half while installing it.
Pros: Easy to install. Fit very well.
Cons: Made completely out of plastic.
Fits perfect. Easy to install.
Makes installing the receiver much easier and gives it that factory look.
The finish on the product, since it is created for the Nissan only should be more than just flat black plastic. The two pieces fit together but only stay together once installed. It does fit nicely within the opening.
nice indash video kit
great product in a timely manner
One word... Perfect! Fits perfectly in my 09 nissan altima
Great kit. Easy installation.
Fit well, easy to install, only complaint is that I put this in a 2007 Nissan Altima and the original dash pieces have a somewhat "mini golf ball indentation" texture whereas this kit has no texture, I didn't expect it to match perfectly so it doesn't take away from the product overall.
Pros: Quick and easy, fits as expected
If there's a part anyone might debate, it might be this one. However, this part is the difference between a professional looking install versus an amatuer one. In my case, I installed a double-DIN receiver where the stock one wasn't so I couldn't have installed it without something like this. Furthermore, it blends flawlessly with the interior on my car.
Pros: Matches interior of my vehicle. Plenty of screws Plenty of options for single-DIN or double-DIN installations.
Cons: The install "ears" are plastic and can break very easily (I broke one and had to superglue it back together).
Looks good and easy to install. Would have a 5* if it had a matching finish to the car instead of smooth black finish.
Yes, the texture doesn't match newer Altimas. I hate that but can live with it. It's not shiny so it doesn't fingerprint too badly. It is all plastic, even the brackets that hold the deck. That is a bit cheap. The front plates have some tabs sort of "snap" into some slots on the side pieces and it is all plastic. I actually broke one of the tabs off trying to maneuver the thing at one point. Luckily it still holds tight and you can't tell after it's all screwed in. I wish it was a little bit beefier and felt stronger than just a bunch of thin plastic. It fit fine and went in easily. And it looks good once in, even the mismatched texture.
Pros: Fits well, easy install.
Cons: Plastic and fragile as it is being assembled.
Did not fit Boss 7 inch touch screen DVD radio
It came in 4 different parts, not one like I usually get. I had to manually modify it to get my head unit to fit in the slot. I have never had to do that before. Once it was in, it looks like the rest of the car dash.
Pros: Perfect match with the rest of the dashboard.
Cons: It had to modify it with a Dremmel tool to get the unit to fit.
Nicely replaced my original dash board in Nissan Altima 2012
Pros: Practical shelf for cds and other items. Fits well. Easy to install.
Mad specific for my car
Pros: Easy installation fits perfect
Fits perfectly into my Nissan Altima. Plain black finish was an eye sore so I painted it with some Krylon texture paint. Not perfect but a huge improvement and now looks like it belongs. Great that it also included the trim for the A/C controls so the whole thing matches in the dash. Main dislike was the mounting brackets were simple plastic. The factory mounts were metal. Seems very fragile to me for a moving vehicle. I guess one should watch out for potholes as to not rattle the mounts.
Pros: Finish looks perfect, no seams, no gaps, matching A/C trim.
Cons: Cheap plastic mounting brackets.
It fits no issue however the stock altima peice is textured this is smooth.
Pros: Black and it fits
Cons: Doesn't match the textured well
It was a perfect fit and looks amazing in my Altima. I installed a pioneer double din media player and the end result looks super impressive. People have even asked me if it came with the car. You can find similar online, but buying from Crutchfield takes the guesswork out and shipping was better and faster comparatively. Use painters tape to cover the surface to avoid scratches during installation.
Pros: Sleek black finish, right part for the job
Great Product overall. Just make sure you read the directions before you go ripping your dash apart. Very snug, great construction.
Pros: Snug fit and great astetic finish.
Cons: None that I can think of.
Pros: Fit and trim very nice looks OEM
The kit was perfect, very good fit, I love it, I recommend it highly for the price paid..
Pros: All the cons
All the pieces are there. This item fitted my Nissan Altima 2010 perfectly. My only issue is that the surface of the plastic does not match the surface of the cars Dashboard. This would make it a perfect replacement if it did.
Pros: Fits well
Cons: Doesnt match the dashboard surface
Great product but it is a finger print magnet. Easy to assemble and install.
Pros: Easy installation
Cons: Attracts fingerprints
Great solid product, easy to install
This part literraly for perfectly and looked great. Leaves a Looks of original from factory. Thnks
Pros: Perfect fit easy to install.
Cons: Plastic housing as opposed to metal from factory. I used the metal brackets from factory
Great product and easy installation. Doesn't match the texture of the dash but matches the soft black plastic of the ac controls
Pros: Easy install
Cons: Doesn't match texture of dash
This kit is same color. Perfect fit, only missing the texture of the original dash. Overall its just right.
Great kit for perfect easy install
My wife says it looks like a factory installation. It looks like it was made that way
Pros: Easy to install
Cons: No negatives
The in dash receiver kit for my Nissan was very easy to set up and It was easy to install and set up. I am very appt with the parts and with the Crutchfield customer service team.
The fit is excellent, although they need a fair amount of effort to snap in place. And they're difficult to remove. I wish the finish was textured like the surrounding dash. Maybe a textured spray paint would get it closer to stock.
Pros: Great fit and color is close to stock.
Cons: Should be textured like the stock pieces.
Very easy to install. Looks great everything lines up perfectly
The product was shipped out and received within a few days. I was very happy with the shipping and receiving. I am also extremely satisfied with the product. It fits perfectly in the car and was exactly what I needed to complete the installation of the stereo in the new car
Pros: Fits perfectly. Tech support staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the parts that were needed to take my stereo out of the old vehicle and install it in the Altima
Cons: I Can Not think of a con in this situation or for any other item I purchased through Crutchfield
I purchased this in-dash kit for my 2012 Nissan Ultima Coupe. Installation was straight forward and the finished installation was very clean. I installed a Pioneer SPH-DA210 and was concerned about the dash kit interfering with the motorized display on the radio. However, the head unit fit perfect and without interference..!!!
Pros: Easy to install Fit is very clean and precise
Cons: Wish this kit came in different colors and textures to match more closely to my existing trim.
Fit nicely into the dash - does not stand out as not factory installed.
Pros: nice clean fit
Cons: Support is plastic which came close to breaking when being installed. Also, it is a different texture than the rest of the dash surroundings
Fit and finish and functionality improved. Nissan take notice.
Pros: Perfect fit
Tremendous product, easy to install and looks factory finish. Nothing bad to say, the parts are all there for any installiation configuration or different types of in dash receiver. With so many after market products not living up to their specs this one delivered the goods.
Received this kit along with my receiver and it is not too bad. It was a perfect fit. Install was quick and easy. My only complaint is the finish. It would be nice if it could match the texture of the rest of the dash.
Pros: perfect fit
Cons: overall finish
The fit is tight and had a professional appearance. Highly recommended.
Pros: Great Fit, Easy installation
Cons: A textured finish to match factory trim is not offered
This product was great. Easy to install. Looks great on the dash.
Pros: Looks great
Looks great, easy installation and fits perfectly.
Pros: Fit perfectly Easy to install Cheap Looks good
Cons: Felt a little flimsy
The product is amazing it fits just like oem..the material doesnt match the orignal but thats not a problem. There are vinyls to wrap it & make it look hotter.
Had a different one this fits and looks best
Pros: Looks like it came with the car
Fit perfectly within the dash with no issues in my 2010 altima
Pros: Easy install
Cons: Plastic screws
Very sturdy, easy to use dash kit. Simply put it together based on your vehicle and it pops right in. I would recommend this over the other kits (minus the stock one) Many complain about the finish on it not matching the dash. It doesn't bother me because it matches the black plastic around the gauges. Very clean looking install.
Pros: Clean look Easy to use Sturdy Perfect fit No trimming or cutting for double din
Cons: The joint between the AC controls and the head unit part makes it a little awkward to hold while wiring the back of the radio. Nothing that Should stop you though, just something to be aware of.
Best fit !
Pros: Perfect fit for double din models
Cons: No Cons
Pros: great fitment
Cons: wish it comes with one piece
Perfect fit , I have a Altima and the texture my dash is a Litte diffrent , but looks factory installed
Pros: Perfect fit easy to install
Kit installs easily enough and fits nice. The only issue I have is the smooth texture doesn't match the rest of the dash.
Pros: Easy installation
Cons: Texture doesn't match.
Exactly as described and looks good. The extra storage space is perfect for the iPod hooked into my Kenwood receiver. The stock radio and CD player were so easy to remove and this kit was so easy to install with the Crutchfield instructions that came with the kit (BONUS)- spend a few minutes reading over the instructions, DISCONNECT your negative battery terminal and go.
Pros: Perfect Fit!!!!! Good instructions
Cons: None- buy the wiring harness for this vehicle also- not worth it if you don't.
I bought this, I got it fast (three days) and free shipping, fit perfect on my Nissan. I highly recommend this site to buy this kind of parts. I'm really happy
Pros: Item complete, brand new, quick and free delivery
I wasn't completely satisfied with this product to be completely honest. The opening isn't the standard DIN size of 7". So my in dash wouldn't fit it properly. I had to file, sand and shave down a good bit to have it properly fit.
Nice clean fit and high build quality
It got here pretty quick and safely, very well packaged, TONS OF PENUTS haha but it looks good good with single din, but my double din comes in on thursday, i will put pics up of both on here for you guys to see the only thing that could be "better" i guess is the dash kit to match the rest of the interior a little more
Pros: easy to install clean look safe packaging
Cons: match the interior trim better
Have a 2012 Nissan Altima Coupe, this kit fits seamlessly. However the texture is different from the surrounding, luckily enough, my car has a charcoal interior so the color matches, I understand Black is the only available color, but I am sure you can get it custom colored.
Pros: Fits seamlessly, easy to install
Cons: different texture from the dash, only one color.
The product arrived in a timely fashion, fit and looks great in my wife's car.
Pros: I loved everything about the kit. The ease of the installation.
Cons: I have nothing negative to say about this product.
This Scosche kit fit my 2010 Altima sedan dash like a glove (I replaced the base factory radio). Yeah, it's not the same texture pattern as the the rest of the center column dash surround but no one's noticed and I don't mind because it fits so well. All the holes line up with the dash screw locations, so no jerking around to make it fit. The black color matches the rest of the dash exactly. I'm happy with it.
Pros: Great fit, black color matched exactly, no unsightly gaps anywhere, fit my Kenwood head-unit perfectly, dash pocket option underneath the radio is very useful on the single-DIN instalation.
Cons: Would have liked identical texturing to the air-vent outlets above it but that's a small point.
This product looks beautiful in my 2007 Nissan Altima. I recommend this product to anyone who wants to upgrade their boring factory radio. I had followed the instructions given to me by Crutchfield for assembling my new radio dash kit and it went very well. Thank you Crutchfield.
Pros: Great fit!
Cons: A carbon fiber look to the kit wouldn't be so bad to match the rest of the dashboard.
Pros: great fit
This kit was a perfect fit in my 2012 Nissan Altima. Everything line up and it was nice to have the storage pocket included since I did a single DIN installation.
Pros: Perfect fit. Extras like pockets and accomodations for both styles of heater controls used by Nissan.
Cons: Does not match the color and texture of my dash. I have the blond interior which uses dark brown panels and this kit is black.
Installed this product in a friends 2007 Altima. Very clean, factory look. I do recommend using with a DD radio. The single din looks kind of plain, this is the reason for not giving it 5 stars, but that isn't the kits fault.
Pros: Fit like a glove, easy install.
Cons: A lot of pieces, but instructions cleared up all the confusion.
Great product! Highly recommend!
Pros: This installation kit is great! I have done many install kits and this one by far is the most factory looking.
Cons: Confused at first by all the pieces, just laid all the pieces out and figured it out immediately!
The kit fits perfect with respect to shape and size. The color is flat black and does not match the "dotted" OEM finish but the black color does match well. I think it looks fine. Obviously, if someone made a kit that matched the dotted original finish, I'd buy it, but this kit is all there is right now but I'm glad it was available at all. My radio is a single DIN and I used the pocket as the second DIN space. All in all, I think it works and looks just fine, just doesn't have the original appearance but I'm ok with that. I'd rather have the new radio and kit than the old original radio and the matching finish. I had it installed so I don't know the difficulty level to do it yourself. Bottom line, I'd recommend it.
Before installing this one, I used to have the Metra kit, which was terrible. It wouldn't snap in all the way on the left side, resulting in noise every time I drove over a bump. Also with the Metra, whenever I tried to eject a CD on my stereo (I have the Eclipse CD7200mkII), the motorized faceplate would get stuck and not open all the way. All those problems were fixed with this Scosche. It is a much sleeker and simpler design and gets the job done!
Works super well, excellent fitting, however, I do find that the plastic looks a little cheap, and mate black only, not simulating too much the interior quality / pattern or finish of my nissan altima's 08 dash
It is easy to install.[ Jorge Sep 18, 2017 ]
Scosche trim kits are always a perfect fit. My last two installs were were right on the money. Solidly built, great quality. Don't waste your time with bargain brands, It just won't be right. I learned that first hand as I wait for my Scosche kit. I will be uninstalling my head unit and throwing the first one away when it comes.[ Preston Sep 05, 2017 ]
I bought this item due to how easy it will be to switch out the head unit. I am changing the car from a single din to a double and this makes it simple.[ John Aug 28, 2017 ]

I chose this item because it was necessary for my double din to fit into my Nissan Altima Coupe. The dash kit easily fit around the radio and climate control unit. Highly recommend if you are changing your radio because you will need the dash kit.[ Charles Nov 15, 2016 ]

Dash kit I needed for my Nissan Altima.[ JEROME J May 20, 2016 ]
My installer recommended the Metra 99-7423 Kit, but the Scoshe NN1642B got much better reviews online. Just to be on the safe side I also ordered a Nissan Altima 2 DIN faceplate and will return the Scoshe if it works out.[ Robert May 14, 2016 ]

Changing decks from factory to custom.[ Ronald R. Feb 04, 2016 ]
Looks great! Just an idea to installers. When removing the "old" radio try using some 3M command strips and attach to the non screen areas of the radio. It's wedged in real tight and the tools can leave dents in the surrounding dash. I use the adhesive strips and attached plastic trim tools to the radio and was able to wiggle it out easier, but still had to use the tools to pry forward from the top.[ Tim E. Jan 31, 2016 ]
It was free with the purchase of the radio.[ Dave Jan 05, 2016 ]
Thanks for your question. All double DIN receivers are approximately the same size. This kit works for both single and double DIN models. When installing 2 DIN the pocket will not be used. Hope this helps.[ Kenny Jan 26, 2017 ] Staff
