Default Installing the Metra dash kit

Not so much of a mod, but you will have to trim/cut the kit plastic bracket so it will allow a fitting over the factory bracket.

Snap off the two tabs. Use a heavy duty scissor/snipper and cut the brackets so it will look like these. The plastic will cut easy.

The factory bracket will go on like this.

The kit bracket will then go over the factory.

First put the HU upside down (not face down). Mount the factory bracket to the HU, use an adhesive to keep it on. Assemble the dash kit. Slide it down on the HU, with the plastic brackets flex and bend over the metal bracket. then push the bezel flush against the HU. Mount and tighten the screws.

The fourth screw hole won't fit in this HU as you can see.

You don't have to use these plastic bracket, but the front bezel will be slight loose against the HU screen, and will not centered.
