On mine the centre console frame was moulded onto the dash, so plenty of very careful cutting was necessary!

Pull out the existing console parts and have a look at the frame with a torch to see if its pre-moulded onto the dash. If it is you have no choice but to cut it out

The dealers do supply the parts if you have the numbers. I bought the surround and frame from ebay, TBH it wasn't a great deal cheaper than the dealers.

EDIT.... Just a concern, where you going to put the sweets and tic tacs afterwards? laugh.gif

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm sure I read somewhere that there is an issue with that heater duct you can see at the top / back of the aperture. Normally only the Climate goes there, I think there may be an interference issue if you are trying to get a DIN unit in at the top.

your wrong! smile.gif

If i am looking at the pics right, its all moulded together?

No matter how your try, you will have to butcher your dash. Its very scary and needs doing with a great deal of care.

I have lots of pictures somewhere (if they will be of any use). 169144-ok.gif
