Re: New Cd player Problems (VeDubYah)

anyways, hmm try sliding that bracket off the cd player.[HR][/HR]​
There is a DIN standard and an ISO DIN standard. These terms are used very loosely depending on who you talk to. Some refer to DIN as the general size of the radio or the opening: roughly 7.125" wide by 2.125" tall. This usually fits most DIN radios with the mounting sleeve intact. ISO or ISO DIN is usually a term for a slightly smaller opening of 6.8-7" by 1.8-2" that allows for only the width of the nosepiece of the radio without the trim ring or mounting sleeve (tin can). You notice that when you remove the sleeve of the stereo there are 5x8mm threaded holes in the side for ISO MOUNT. These holes are are designed to spec for the metal side brackets of many Japanese vehicles that have ISO openings.
It is common to have to file a little bit for different brands of units. Not every radio is the exact same size. You should use the metal sleeve. Also see if your unit comes with a rubber peg for the back. In our cars you will notice a metal loop at the back of the radio cavity. It is the rear support for the factory radio. If you attach the rubber peg to the back of your cd player then you can use the VW rear support which will make your mount even more stable. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
