Does anyone know if it is possible to fit a standard DIN size unit in the cubby hole under the head unit on a MK1  Huh?

I have plans for this and want to make sure it will fit   Wink

Dave , I tried a Din size DVD player in there and it wouldnt quite fit in. It would need some trimming of the plastic to get it  to go in nicely , but didnt look as if it would be too much of a job.

Ive got two single din units to go in my dash and Im pretty sure it will need some surgery too . I know it definately wont fit straight in .

Anythings possible J Wink

Dave....... ive just had a go fitting both my din units in the wood look  radio/ centre dash surround that I have in the house and they both fit perfectly in there.

I think the problem lies with the lower cubby hole on the MK1`s as im sure its not as deep as the radio hole so whatever you put in the lower hole will stick out the dash unless you modify the brackets in the back.

Cheers Guys,

Seems the trusty dremmel might be called into action here.

Just had a look a BagPuss gallery and he has fitted one somehow so I have just sent him a PM.

The reason I ask is because I have just won THIS on E-Bay and because it is a DIN size the only place for it is the dash cubby hole.

Another bargin me thinks  Grin

Yep

It is possible without really any modding at all.

There is a support beam behind the cubby hole that needs either taking out or in my case bending back to allow the unit to slide back further.

Just depends on the depth of the unit.

Other than that, a straight forward jobby Wink

Dave, how are you thinking of fitting the screen? It doesn't look like a motorised one to me?

Right Just got back from collecting the TV screen

Paul, it is manual ejection and not motorised but it does the job and is still a DIN size unit which is good so should be able to squeese it in.

It's not a bad unit at all and in quite good condition although he said it was a 9 inch screen it is in fact only 7 inches.

Comes with all the wiring so now I'll  have fun plugging it all in.  Smiley

Fits fine. I moved my unit down from the top slot to the bottom. Moved it because I had DVD and wanted the screen as low as possible.

No modding needed, however I had to trim the storage box a little to fit above as it isn't intended for there.
