Double din install cage suggestion?


Recommended Posts

I have got a double din head unit in my lupo at the moment and it's been fitted wrong and it can just be slid out the metal holding brackets due to not having the correct cage or having the facia plate...buying second hand life haha :blink: how it is current sitting in my Lupo the past owner used wood screws to fit the bracket fml.... https://i.imgur.com/w6qGGjz.jpg

I have been looking for some different cages and I was just wanting to know what is the best option for lupos? Also I have got the model where the cup holder had to be removed.

They all look sort of the same however I have been reading some fit really bad and are cheap and ill fitting.

 

Thanks in advance

That middle one looks like a fake or something else. The bottom one is the correct. 

Fit with that and two counter sunk screws in the side to keep it secure. The FP-17-00 slides in and out without the need for keys, but uses two large clips at the bottom so it shouldn't eject in an accident.

I'm pretty sure that my car has one like this:

I'm not offering any guarantees though!

Thanks Skezza would you know if it will come with the screws needed to fit this as I have not got any with the unit as stated was second hand and never thought about the screws aha.

Just get some countersunk that roughly fit. Can't remember the thread but they're all pretty much the same.
