I think you read my description wrong; I didn't even get to the part where I would check to see if the depth was right. The radio cut-out in the dash is not a rectangle like it would be for a NAV unit. The left and right sides of the hole have a semi-circle carved out to fit the buttons on the factory unit. I saw a kit on eBay that has the center piece of the dash to swap it out, but again; when I turned over the dash assembly, that center radio piece was not snapped in or screwed in. It was melted in with plastic rivets.that piece behind the radio that prevents you from installing an aftermarket radio, I didn't even know it existed at first when I had installed my radio myself. I was just getting pissed that my radio wouldn't go in, so I pulled it out, reached in with my bare hand, grabbed the first hard thing I felt and ripped it out. It came out completely clean like it was designed to do such a thing. My mood flipped immediately.
Point of the story was that it isn't hard to remove, but don't get me wrong it did take some force.
Like I said, this was turning into WAY more than I bargained for. If this followed my luck, I would have bought a bunch of extra items to make this work, then I would've broken something that I needed for the install, then on top of everything I would have to pay someone after the fact to fix everything I screwed up..lololol :wink3:
