Head Unit Replacement to Single Din


Hey Guys

Hope im not repeating anything that has already been asked or posted but I've had a good hunt around and cant seem to find and answer to my particular problem.

I have a 02 Ti with the factory double din head unit in place which is coming up with an error 1 msg on the screen and is having dramas playing burnt cd's, this seems to be a common problem according to other posts I have read.
Unfortunatly the car is no longer under new car warrently so im going to replace it all together.

Im a pretty technically minded person so my issue is not getting the stock head unit out, I have actually printed off the how to guide and pulled the unit out no dramas there.

Rather than replacing it with a double din unit again which are quite pricey, i would like to replace it with a single din unit, reason being Im trying to save for a holiday cant really afford to shell out $300 plus for a double din head unit at the mo but im quite willing to duck down to me local JB hifi and fork out a $100 for a cheap pioneer unit just to keep the tunes rolling in me little bus.

What i would like to know is.
1. Can you buy the single din pockets ??
2. Where can I get them from ??
3. How do you mount the single din head unit so it doesnt move anywhere.
4. Is there a way of utilizing the double din brackets for the single din unit ?? Mabe chopping them in half and only using the top bolts holes ??

Any help greatly appreciated emoticon

1. Yes. check the for sale section HERE

2. See above.

3. The double DIN brackets can be used to hold the din pocket and the single head unit together without cutting anything.

4. As mentioned above, there is no need to chop anything and you can remove the bracket holding your double DIN head unit and use the same brackets to hold the single head unit and a DIN pocket.

Strathfield car radios did this change from double-din to single-din+pocket with my wife's corolla so it should be easy enough for the Xtrail also.
