Head unit problem

Recommended Posts

Hi,

one of the first things i did to my car was to take out the stock Head unit and to install my own head unit. However after installing this unit, i have found that there is a gap on either side of the head unit at about 10mm wide. I have put up with this gap for a while now however, recently i started getting annoyed because i could see the brackets etc. I went to strathfield to buy a bracket and i was told that this was a commone problem with toyota and to go to toyota parts to buy a bracket to clip on around the new head unit, thereby covering both gaps.

I was wondering two things, firstly, who here has had this problem and how did you fix it?

secondly, where can i buy toyota parts from? I live in Sydney BTW.

Thanks

i thought so but i may have got a new guy at the dealer when i asked for it cos he said they dont have them...

Thanks for the help anyway

I was told the same thing around all of the metro Western Australian dealers, its a pin in the *****.

If push comes to shove then take it to a car stereo place and have them make something up for you, cost me $30 to have side brackets made up and fitted.

After much searching of the forum for 'spacers', 'head units', 'stereo' etc etc i evenmtually found the parts listed under 'butterflys'.

You can find them in this thread Audio Questions

But if you don't feel like reading the thread... the Toyota part numbers are:

86221-52050 LH Side

86221-52060 RH Side

Hope that helps!

I went to Ryde Toyota and enquired about the butterfly parts, Apperently they are $85 each!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I could not believe it. I spoke to my dealer about it and he said that if i gave him my original head unit from toyta, he would swap me for the parts.

What a **** rip off. I think ill just get one of those metra kits

Thanks kcorro,

I thought that was excessive, and when i kept mouthing 85 bucks in disbelief he kept agreeing that it was expensive...

I will try and go to toyota parts directly this time instead of asking my dealer.

Do the spacers just plug in the front or do you need to take the dash apart to put them on?

not 100% sure but they should be around $10-$15 each depending on how much you can haggle with the sales guy.

E-Gene how much did you pay for the ones i put in your car?

C.

Just a note on these parts, last time I picked them up at (Peter) Warren Toyota (Warwick Farm, NSW)

Spacers were $7.50 each.

The DIN pocket was roughly $20, perfect fit for us Corolla owners. I'll have to look for the receipt again to double check the price.
