    finally got to installing my head unit today... everything went well until i tried to button it all up. the factory trim piece has 5 tabs holding it on, the one i got from crutchfield has 4 tabs and it looks like they expected a bolt for the top middle part.

    the trim won't stay attached because this needs to be bolted in. anyone come across this ? what did you do ?

    guess I am hunting for a bolt.

    tape wont hold. takes a bit of pressure to push it flush. zip tie might work. good idea.

    Thats how mine is, it holds up just fine without it. The only thing ive noticed is it tends to raddle due to the plastic clacking agianst eachother.

    I have almost exactly the same stereo with the same bracket. Mine did not come with a screw. And it works just fine.

    Looks to me like something like this is missing and a screw needs to go there.

    i find it also helps when you put the clips on the tabs for the new trim :rolleyes: that would have saved me about an hour...

    i did a decent job on the harness if that redeems me at all haha
