Please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this kit is compatible with your vehicle. Warranty: 60 days.

High quality adapter to fit into the dash. Makes for simple installation of the double DIN receiver into my daughters 2009 Mazda 3

Pros: Makes for a clean and simple installation

Cons: You do lose the factory information display, but small price to pay for a clean installation

Dash Kit was easy to use and was a good fit. The color doesn't quite match the rest of the dash, but that is to be expected. My biggest issue was mounting the Factory LCD. The bolt and nut for mounting the display were a bit difficult.

Caine from Wolcott ny on 3/6/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Radio fits nicely in the kit, the kit does not fit perfectly into the dash though. The bottom clips are loose making the climate control section underneath wiggle about 1/4 inch in either direction. As a perfectionist who needs a clean install to be happy I could only give 3 stars. Besides that it is a 5 star product.

Pros: Radio fits snugly into kit.

Cons: Bottom clips are loose, causing the climate control to wiggle

Factory look and fit

Tom from Mohrsville, PA on 12/30/2018

2006 Mazda 3

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Worked as expected. Plastic could be thicker for durability. Instructions were misleading. The factory unit used felt padding to reduce or eliminate vibration noises at key mounting spots. It would be nice if this kit included adhesive felt strips for this purpose. The factory unit uses a separate display (for Audio unit, clock, computer & climate info) which I wanted to preserve for the climate display info (fan speed, interior/AMB temperature, etc). The kit allows for this and includes brackets to mount the display to the dash but the instructions are very confusing and lack detail. Plus, in the "Dash Disassembly" section, they instruct you to remove the display trim ring from the display trim panel, which shouldn't be the case if you are keeping the existing factory display. Everything seems to fit fine but It would be better if the main panel had a tab at the bottom to align into the climate bezel below like the factory unit does.

Pros: Good Price

Cons: Could be a little more durable. Instructions misleading

Not bad, but looks cheap in my dash

Martin from Folsom, CA on 12/4/2018

2006 Mazda 3

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Not bad. It's an easy to use kit, but it doesn't look that great. It looks kind of cheap and "after market". because the plastic is a very dull black and the rest of the factory dash is a shiny black along with the Kenwood stereo's screen and faceplate. So the dull flat black plastic looks out of place on the dash. Overall great proce for what you get and a good product, easy to use and install, but lacks a little on appearance.

Cons:

Fits great! Way better than the off-brand one I bought before. Fit first try, without tons of wasted time tweaking it around.

Pros: Easy to install. Comes with a little tray where the old clock and stereo interface was before. Neat feature. Fast shipping.

Cons: Shipping was misleading. Thought it would be free.

Fit and finish are excellent.

Crutchfield customer from Easton, PA on 3/28/2018

2008 Mazda 3

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I can't give more than three stars due to the poorly written instructions and if the fit and finish wasn't as nice as it was, I'd give less. The pictures are small and in some cases worthless. I have automatic HVAC controls so I was able to retain the factory audio display vs. using the pocket. The picture associated with the instructions stating to mount the brackets provided with the dash kit to the display only showed a picture of the open cavity in the dash referencing what screws are used to attach the completed assembly. I know I can be dense at times but it was frustrating trying to figure out their correct orientation and some four letter words were involved. Crutchfield would be smart to include a supplement instruction manual so you could use the Metra manual as fire starter. And don't even think of calling Metra customer service. I tried and the phone never rang, it went straight to music like I was on hold. I called on a Saturday afternoon, so I have no idea if the offices were closed or if I was actually in some queue waiting for a person to pick up.

Pros: Fit and finish

Cons: Instructions, instructions, instructions. They are worthless!

easy to install, fit was good but I did some trimming across the top for the trim piece on my 04 mazda3. I do like the pocket on top, my iphone fits nicely. i put a hole in the side of it and ran a usb lightening cord up to connect to my phone.

made for a fast and clean install into the dash for an aftermarket unit. Only thing I didn't like was losing my factory outside air temp display they should include brackets to be able to reuse that.

Looks great but.....

DadBoughtStuff4Daughter from St. Augustine, FL on 3/15/2017

2007 Mazda 3

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

.....the directions Suck!! It might be best to not even look at the directions and figure it out for yourself because they fail to mention such relative information such as which screws to use where, which components are called what and which parts aren't even used which will really agitate you because assembly makes no sense. It looks great when done but some poor soul at Crutchfield needs to write some general illustrated directions to supplement the company's poor effort. A how to video series would be even more spiffy! Or maybe I'm just a bonehead, who knows?

Pros: Clean, tight fit for all components

Cons: The directions Suck!!

Fits the Mazda 3, but not all stereos.

Jason from Mill Creek, WA on 2/6/2017

2007 Mazda 3

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Like other reviewers, I had two problems with this dash kit: 1) it didn't secure at all to the lower climate controls, so I had to resort to double-sided tape and weather stripping to get things to stop moving around. 2) the stereo sat a good 1/2" recessed, making the controls hard to reach. The end of the volume knob was flush with the sides. Not a problem for some stereos, but my Sony XAV-AX100 was not a good fit. I'll be looking elsewhere to find another kit given a big reason I picked this stereo was the volume knob.

Pros: Goes well with the Mazda 3 interior. Looks nice.

Cons: Stereo sits recessed 1/2". Doesn't latch to climate control panel, requiring MacGyver methods to secure.

FIts perfectly in the dash. The beauty clips that go on last are kind of out of whack on the left side. I tried trimming about 1mm off of the plastic clip, but it's still poking out a little bit, but I can live with it.

Pros: looks great!

Cons: Feels like cheap plastic, and the measurements for the cutout could be a tad better.

The finish on this product is pretty close to the factory dash. Which is nice. The fit is also very good. Although the part that fills in the factory center console display is far from perfect. Likely due to the molding process, not the actual part itself. A little super glue and all was well.

Pros: Simple and effective.

Cons: Slight molding imperfection.

Dash kit tip

Mazda3er from Arlington tx on 4/22/2016

2006 Mazda 3

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The finish it fine, the fit... Not so much. I do have a tip... On the bottom of the dash kit, u will notice that it is missing three tabs to hold the A/c control panel I place and tight. I placed a weather stripping on the location of the three tabs, it adds pressure and makes the install look great. the A/C panel will fit nice and tight. But the best thing of buying from Crutchfield.... The dash kit was free and the shipping was free!!! I was able to buy a better radio, dash kit and wiring kit for the same price of lower models radio at car toys!!

Pros: It was free with purchase of radio

Cons: Not the best fit... But us Mazda 3ers don't have much choice

Hard to turn volume nob

Milton from ft worth, TX on 3/6/2016

2009 Mazda 3

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I purchased this kit along with a Kenwood Excelon DNX692. I had the kit and radio professionally installed. There was limited ability to adjust the radio in or out, so the volume dial, witch is close to the edge of the radio and close to the bezel, only stuck out half way making the volume dial difficult to turn. There was also noticeably wider gap around the kit and the dash.

Pros: Matches dash plastic color and texture.

Cons: May not be a good fit with all radios.

Overall, looks great, but the instructions could have been clearer. Also, it would have been great if parts would snap into place--I battled with this for at least 30 minutes, as pieces would fall off as I was trying to "attach" another piece or place it on the stereo itself.

Pros: Looks good

Cons: Difficult to assemble/keep assembled during install

Good fit '06 Mazda3

Clint from Massachusetts on 7/19/2015

2006 Mazda 3

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

All pieces go together very easily and pop into place with no problem. The lower piece fits a Double DIN perfectly and the finish is a close match to the black plastic of the dash. The upper piece which is a pocket meant to replace the OEM upper LCD display is a bit sloppier. Its tabs do not hold tightly to the OEM trim piece but it still looks pretty good, certainly fine on my 9-year-old car. If you are very particular, a couple dabs of super glue would help.

Pros: Easy assembly

Cons: Upper piece is imprecisely fitted

Instruction Manual Mud...for Mazda 3'07

Edwin from California on 1/1/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The kit for the '07 Mazda3 the instruction manual needs to be rewritten and the illustration can be much better. Simple kit but poorly written and bad illustration. The instructions need to be broken down further to better illustrate the procedure in assembling the kit.

Pros: Wiring harness good. Main panel kit was a good fit. However the instruction manual to put the stereo panels in was badly illustrated!

Cons: On the '07 Mazda 3 the recess pocket to replace the climate control display is really a bad fit, will definitely break some fasteners on the trim!!! The replacement pocket is not needed. You can still use the factory climate control display which is attached on top of the factory radio by removing a couple of screws, and using the kit's adapter to refasten the climate control display back into the dash, don't forget to reattach the wiring harness back onto the climate control display.

While the main lower part of the double din trim ring fit perfectly, the upper part, that was supposed to cover a hole left from removing the original display (clock, radio, or cd), did not fit at all. I ended up having to patch the existing trim with black duct tape. If it were not free with the radio, I would have sent it back.

Pros: Trim looks pretty nice when it fits.

Cons: Some of it does not fit at all.

Ordered this kit to install a head unit in a 2006 Mazda 3 hatchback. The finished trim looks great, approximating the look of OEM trim. The kit also took advantage of extra dash space by providing a shelf which works well to hold a cell phone or similar device. Would purchase again. Delivery was quick; no problems.

Pros: Good match - color and texture - for OEM trim. New cell phone compartment/shelf very useful.

Installed this on a 2008 Mazdaspeed3 GT, it goes in pretty easy had to modify the brackets and center vent trim to make the Climate Controll display to fit properly, not a big deal though. Also the AC panel doesn't seem to fit snug to it like the factory radio, it jitters while going over bumps

Pros: Free when you order a new HU =) Easy to put togeather

Good, but required a little modification/molding

DanM from Boston, MA on 12/28/2012

2009 Mazda 3

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This kit blends very nicely with the original Mazda 3 trim and provides an extra storage recess where the original orange lcd display was located with the original unit. My only gripe is that the plastic piece that goes directly around the head unit left a noticable gap between the larger plastic piece of the kit in which it fits. This was due to the lengthwise portions being bowed inwardly, likely due to issues with the injection molding. This also caused the clips to not properly engage with the larger portion of the kit. To remedy this, I initially used a hair dryer on the hottest setting and applied some force near the corners to straighten the sections up. I still had issues with the clips not properly latching, so I (gently) bent them outwardly a bit while carefully applying some heat from a butane torch. After these modifications, the unit fits and looks great. Overall, I am very pleased and can look past the required modification in view of this kit being included free from Crutchfield with my head unit.

Pros: Integrates nicely with original interior

Cons: Required some bending/remolding to get pieces to fit together correctly.

Not bad considering the price but the plastic is cheap feeling compared to the OEM items. The display replacement was especially poor fitting. It bowed in the middle making it almost impossible to fit flush. Ended up putting the piece in boiling water for a few minutes and spreading the middle back out to make it fit.

Instructions weren't great but I managed to get what I needed. Trim panel unfortunately doesn't fit flush on one side which is annoying. Tried to fix it with tape but it's not a good solution.

Dont bother

Installed this kit into a 2004 Mazda 3 with a Pioneer navi unit. Plastic is very cheap and looks horrible installed in car. The top and bottom LCD replacement cup bows in the middle, and will not seat properly. The factory radio has three clips on the top of the curved plastic face plate for the carbon fiber trim to secure into. The metra kit only has one, which causes the cheap kit to sag down where there should be a clip. The kit is secured by clips at the bottom which do not stay seated into the dash and I am constantly pushing the radio back into the dash. Called metra to see what the problem was and they insisted there was no problem and told me I needed to send in pictures to prove it. I have had a lot more luck with other kits!!! Do not waste your time.

Good Kit

I installed a new JVC unit in my 2008 Mazda 3i Touring using this kit. The kit is a good kit overall, but I would only recommend if you do not plan to use the LCD replacement tray that comes with the kit. That part is very cheap looking and I would not want it front and center on my dash. The kit does include the clips needed to remove the lcd screen from the factory stereo and reinstall it so that you don't have to use the replacement tray. I did it that way because I wanted to keep my outside temp reading on the lcd. The only problem is that you lose the ability to set the clock on the factory lcd screen. You can overcome that by disconnecting and reconnecting the battery at noon or midnight, or just learn to ignore the clock. The only other issue with the kit is that there is about a 1/32 inch gap at the top left side where it meets the dash. It's barely noticable but I can see it. I also had to do some minor trimming of the plastic clips to get the lcd screen to the exact right position. I'm satisfied with the kit overall. It's probably the best one out there for the Mazda 3.

2005 Mazda 3 HB

This is all you need for a perfect install. The radio sits flush with the A/C controls just as well if not better than the stock unit that came out. I do not have the climate control options on my car so I used the tray that comes with it to fill the hole for the screen that wasn't re-used. It doesnt hold much but it is very handy for those little oddsand ends that get lost in the cup holders...

Everything needed for a professional install was included, even the 2 little hooks that are essential if you want to use the factory radio screen with an aftermarket stereo.

OEM looking

Overall, this is probably the best looking aftermarket double din replacement. Everything looks OEM, except for the LCD replacement piece. It looks really cheap, scratches easily, and is very bent. I suggest using the 2 pieces included with the kit labeled "E" in the instruction manual to mount the LCD to the dash. It took me an hour to find out how the heck I could mount the LCD to the dash but I use the same screw holes that the top dash piece where the vents are located screws in. I had to buy 2 custom metric screws with washers so I could screw the pieces onto the LCD unit to hold it in place, but after that, everything else fit!

Q
Can the shelf be switched with the bottom so that the radio controls are higher up (want to see in peripheral vision without taking eyes off the road). All the pictures show the shelf on top, but I'd rather the head unit be on top. Does this let?
[ Mordy  Jan 18, 2019 ]
3 answers
A
The shelf replaces the clock in the trim above the radio. The radio sets the location as the factory radio.
[ Kevin  Jan 18, 2019 ]
A
If I'm understanding your question correctly, then no, the shelf cannot be switched. Because of the design of the car's dash/console area, everything can only be installed in the assigned position.
[ JUAN  Jan 18, 2019 ]
A
No, not without significant modding. The shelf is meant to take the place of that orange LCD Display that shows the temperature and time, and that shelf will not fit any other way. The same goes for the radio, it will only fit the way it is pictured. The only way around that is to do significant mods and custom work.
[ Austin  Jan 18, 2019 ]
Q
Will my steering wheel controls still work if I replace the stereo?
[ CristianR  Jul 04, 2018 ]
3 answers
A
You will probably need to add the steering wheel control adapter for your car. It works fine on my car and the steering wheel controls work the same as they used to.
[ Richard  Jul 05, 2018 ]
A
If you purchase the necessary adapter wiring harness you can still maintain the steering wheel controls with an aftermarket stereo.
[ Thomas  Jul 04, 2018 ]
A
Hi Cristian, You have to purchase an adapter if you want your steering wheel controls to work with an aftermarket head unit. I did not , so my steering wheel controls don't work. It doesn't bother me though. I'm usually controlling everything through my iPhone anyway, and the volume knob is easy enough to grab on most head units.
[ Garrett  Jul 04, 2018 ]
Q
Can you mount the LCD onto this?
[ Lloyd  Jan 20, 2015 ]
4 answers
A
you can remove the lcd from from the stock unit
[ NATHAN  Jan 20, 2015 ]
A
Yes. i have the Appradio 2 in mine.
[ NATHAN  Jan 20, 2015 ]
A
I chose not to mount the LCD since the data for the LCD came from the factory radio itself - it would effectively only show the clock and the outside temperature. Since the radio I installed has a clock on it, I didn't see a need for mounting the LCD. With that said, with some modification, you can mount the LCD inside the pocket piece that goes above the trim ring, or leave the pocket piece out entirely. There are several blog posts on how to do this, as well as some useful YouTube videos. I hope this helps!
[ KEVIN L  Jan 20, 2015 ]
A
No, sadly. The LCD is removed, leaving a black, shallow tray in its place.
[ NICHOLAS  Jan 20, 2015 ]
