    Wish I could help man but I put in a single din w/Metra kit. But... have you tried to search "ixa-w404"? Don't include "Alpine" because you'll get a bunch of threads that have Alpine in it. I searched just "ixa-w404" and it came up with a few threads that maybe you can PM members that have the 404 like you and see what they did. Good luck!

    found out how to do it, the scosche comes with a piece of trim so what i need to do is take the exsisting trim off the alpine, slip it through the scosche and attach the scosche trim to the alpine and it fits snug as a glove haha
