two man job!

tuck cables in as best you can, force the HU back, and hook the little catches over on either side of the cage.

Good grief .. take it all out and start again man ! :rasp:

For starters, the cage isn't in properly ! Put that in first, secure it, then put the HU in.

Secondly, there's plenty of room to tuck the wires away to the left and below the space where the radio will be. Poke them down there and then you should be home and dry with a little encouragement. Don't just ram it home !!!

Try tying a length of string to the stereo loom behing the iso connector, then feed the wire through on of the cavities behind the unit and out into the passenger footwell. As your pushing the unit into place pull the new piece of string or wire down. this will move the wiring behind the unit to the side allowing you to click the HU into place. As said before use marginal force but not enough to break the HU wiring. when the units in, follow the new wire up behind the dash and cut it leaving the unit in place with no string or wires showing.

If the cage isnt secured first you ll need to disconnect the HU and place this in bending the tabs to stop it moving. Hope this helps

Yeah thanks, with a bit of effort eventually got it in but think i'll struggle if it needs to come out lol! Was going to add a sub but dunno if I can be bothered now. Want a yozza!

Did you push all the pins in properly or can I still break into your car one night and steal your hu? :L

They only need a biro or something similar to pop the catches. Others need the keys but you can buy those in halfords anyway. Don't leave the face on .. problem solved ;)

I've come to realise all aftermarket units are fairly easy to remove tbh. But taking the face off is definately the best idea!
