    Hey there
    Going to be fitting a double din stereo, removed the old one and clock and new one on the way. Anyone know if I need a cage kit or can I just use the exisitinf brackets. Any advise greatly appreciated

    There is a video on YouTube I'm pretty sure you don't have to change the cage just remove the little cage for click and storage unit and your dub din should just slide. Will be doing the same in the near future so let me know how it goes and what double din are you getting?

    Hmm I found the video showing replacing the single stereo but can't find the double din install. Will keep hunting and will be sure to let you know how it goes. Easy getting the old one out that's for sure

    Double din is, pretty much, the same as single din. The cage can house both single and double din radios / headunits. What you need to be careful about is the depth of the new radio as you don't want it sticking out a mile.

    That youtube video is me, by the way :)

    I've just done mine. A double din and it looks the part. I also took the opportunity to install a rear view camera and I haven't looked back yet. (pun intended :D)
    All stereos have a bunch of holes where to screw the brackets to accommodate to different cars, it's just a matter of trial and error until you get them in the place you want. The only thing you would need to take into account is the wiring. If you have a stereo that has the two socket ISO thingy the better, as it would just be a matter of unplug the old, and plug in the new. Mine didn't so I had to do a bit of creative soldering. Nothing too complicated. My advice is do it, then see what else you need, it won't be complicated. The videos from @Number6 are the best reference ever :clap:. A must see. As they mentioned, the procedure would be the same pretty much but taking the clock out too.
    Hope this helps. :wasntme:

    My stereo with data input so I get 3g all the time. Watching a bit of wildlife on BBC catchup.
