Have you ever fitted the car stereo into the dashboard

Have you ever fitted the car stereo into the dashboard? If you are green in this field with a lack of knowledge and understanding about the installation or if you are facing the car stereo which seems to be mounted into the dashboard, you may find it a hard nut to crack and may feel slightly afraid. A daunting matter may be the right wording to express your feeling. But don’t worry about that and take it easy, since a number of the factory car stereo can be changed in less than half an hour when they are given the correct parts. 

In this car stereo fit guide, we will delve a bit into the parts which should be taken into consideration when it comes to change the car stereo. Please notice that not all cars require all of these parts.

1. Fascia plate - If the car stereo fits round the dashboard tightly or it is bigger than the new one that you want to change for, you need to get the fascia adaptor. You should mount the fascia plate in the dashboard in order to make suitable room for the new stereo to fit into.

2. ISO adaptor – In the majority of cases, the standard plug does not fit the new stereo. On this occasion an adaptor lead is needed for the purpose of converting the original plug to the standard ISO size. The standard ISO size is required by most of the aftermarket car stereo. It is better to make use of an ISO adaptor than to cut any wires.

3. Aerial adaptor – For some cars, the original aerial adaptor can well fit the new car stereo, while other may require a simple aerial adaptor.

4. Removal keys – Only when the factory car stereo is dismounted and removed, can you install the new car stereo. For some cars, you have to first remove parts of the dashboard in order to get the whole unit out due to the structured factory unit, while others coming with slots or holes on the front need removal keys which can be slotted into the holes and thus make the job easier for you to pull the unit out.

5. Steering wheel interface- When you change the stereo and want to keep the factory steering wheel controls at the same time, a special steering wheel interface is needed. It can lead in addition to the ISO adaptor as we have mentioned above. Remember that not all new stereos can support the wheel controls and think about this seriously during purchase.

In this car stereo fit guide we mention the five most common things for your consideration. Of course, it is very probably that you will always combine all these things together in order to fit the new stereo. Besides you have to deal with the matter according to the situation of the cars. At times other parts may be needed after you fit in the new unit.
