When browsing a new radio for my 2012 Ram 1500, I was concerned by "will require modifications". Thanks to these instructions, I was able to see it wasn't a big deal. Excellent photography, easy to comprehend writing.

Don't wast your money

Crutchfield customer from WARRENTON, VA on 7/23/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Very basic information that can be found on the web. For the price I would expect at least parts list or recommended adaptors. My car had 8 variations of wiring for one year. I paid for with and with out sub and they were expect same master sheet. Do not wast your time or money. Crutchfield this is a failure and just pure lazy documentation.

Pros: None

Cons: Same information provided on there website and what is not there is available on the web.

These instructions made my installation so much easier, and took far less time than it could have. The pictures made it very easy to see exactly what I needed to do. Awesome instruction. I wish I had knew about these sooner. I tried youtube and forums specific to my car, they didn't even come close to what these instructions provided.

2016 Ford Fusion Hybrid

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

I've been buying from Crutchfield for twenty years and eight different cars. Master sheets are so helpful. One minor deficiency with the 2013-present Ford Fusion sheets: normally the door panel photo shows the locations of the snap clips on the inside of the panel. This one did not which is a mistake and should be fixed. Knowing these locations is pretty important to make sure you know where to pry without breaking something. Figure 6 on page 8...

A good start but needs more specifics for my vehicle

Crutchfield customer from Metairie, LA on 5/1/2019

2013 Honda Pilot

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

I will start by saying Crutchfield Master Sheets are very helpful, and I certainly know more about disassembling my car now than I did without it. But the problem with this one (and one other one I got in the past for a different car) is that the range of years/models/trim covered is too broad. This is for 2009 and up Honda Pilots with 10 speaker systems. I have a 2013 Honda Pilot EX-L with Navigation. There are a couple little things on this Master Sheet that don't apply to my car, and there are a couple things in my car that are not on this Master Sheet. I certainly expected more detail from a pdf file for this price. I'm not a beginner at car audio installation, but I still find this information slightly lacking. The other car I once had a master sheet for was a 2006 Volkswagen Passat. Same issue - good for the basics and a start, but not nearly enough to help avoid the need for a pro installation of Crutchfield's gear. I still love Crutchfield and their customer service. These Master Sheet's need some updating to be true DIY instructions.

Pros: A good starter; Detailed at telling you what tools are needed

Cons: Not enough detail for disassembly/fabrication/re-assembly; many items and wires in my car are not covered on the Master Sheet they sent; there are other wiring options available than the 2 they mention in here;

The step by step installation instructions were super easy to follow, I went with a single din receiver as it is my daily driver, and I did not need a navigation, and other bells and whistles. Super happy how it came out and how easy it was to follow and understand the instructions.

Pros: Easy to Follow, Easy to understand.

Steve from Sacramento, CA on 3/9/2019

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

I purchased the instructions in order to determine in advance how difficult it would be to install a navigation unit and speakers in my 2000 Silverado. The instructions had the detail I needed to tell me what I was getting into. At only nine dollars, it was a very reasonable investment that could save hundreds in wasted expense down the road.

Information is generally about removing 2 types of factory radio. On receiver installation page, it is very generic about the radio installation and points to the instructions on the new radio. I wish there was more information about maybe one of the brands of radios to show how it would integrate with all the steering buttons.

Waste of $

Rich from Pittsburgh, PA on 2/10/2019

2012 Honda Accord

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

Waited for one and half hours to be emailed a pdf. Then when I finally after a live chat and 2 phone calls, realized that only the first 4 pages were for radio install. The rest was speaker installation. I thought I was getting 17 pages of RADIO installation which would include harnesses, steering wheel controls etc. To make matters worse the instructions were wrong and/or missing info. One step failed to tell you to remove the screws PRIOR to pushing the knobs. Totally omitted the removal of hazard button. I could go on but in short I feel ripped off at this price.

Pros: None

Cons: See review

Crutchfield response on 2/11/2019
Rich contacted our Customer Support team for help. Purchases from Crutchfield can be returned or exchanged within 60 days.

I feel the installation instructions are very very helpful. It certainly takes the guesswork out of locating all possible attach points. Great documentation along with helpful illustrations with the pictures. I would have liked to see a few more pics illustrating the opening where the radio is installed, also I think the printed version may be a little more helpful. (wouldn't have to run back and forth referring to my desktop) Crutchfield has given great assurance to the DO IT YOURSELF GUY! Thank you for the great service you have provided! Respectfully, David Hendrickson

Lifesaving and DASH SAVING Installation Instructions

Jeremy from Sandy, UT on 11/30/2018

2018 Hyundai Elantra GT

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

I needed instruction on disassembling the dash to access the wiring for the factory head unit in order to connect the speaker-level inputs of a mono subwoofer amplifier. My vehicle is a brand new 2018 and I wasn't keen on the idea of poking, prodding and prying to figure out how the dash comes apart. I feared breaking trim or clips. I love that Crutchfield R&D figures this out and documents it for me! I have received the free installation instructions from Crutchfield in the past when I have purchased products from them, but this time I was installing equipment that I already had. I am glad that they make this same information available for purchase in instances such as this. It was well worth the $10 not to destroy the dash of my new car. Thanks Crutchfield R&D!!

Unfortunately I thought this master sheet was the answer to everything regarding DIY car stereos.

Big disappointment I still had to take it somewhere to get it installed.

Wow. Trying to replace the factory head unit is a maze of spaghetti. These instructions, while minimal, were almost perfect and fairly complete. So happy they included them. The wiring adapter is very complex with nav/mics/audio/and camera's. Old school DIY person. The posi-twist connectors were much needed as well even though I didn't think I needed them! (have heat shrink and soldering iron) I actually wired the metra in my living room before install Thanks for the help!

Pros: Wouldn't attempt this w/o them had most of what I needed

Cons: Print is small and kind of light. I am old so yeah needed my glasses

I did not realize that this did not include any factory radio wiring diagrams or wiring codes.

Pros: It was instructions of how to remove your radio....wow! I knew that already.

Cons: No wiring information or color codes.

Has only Generic Instructions. I had a variant with a subwoofer and a factory amp, and this document does not have any information on them - just a bunch of generic instructions on how to remove speakers and head units with Images from a civic

Pros: The level of information in this document is for absolute newbies

Cons: Nothing about the specific issues that need to be addressed in what is supposedly a car specific document

About 98% of anything you need to do any changes or upgrades to the factory sound system. It gives you all the color codes of the wiring but falls short by not giving locations and cable routing harnesses or where the various factory components. Other than that it is great.

The great part about these instructions is that they are easy to follow, and have clear pictures. I've purchased a few of these for different cars, and one thing I've noticed is that they've added text to the pictures and more clearly show you where and how to pry up panels. This is really helpful, so that you don't accidentally pry up the wrong spot and create a scratch or dent inadvertently.

Great Product Except One Thing...

John from Farmington, UT on 5/14/2018

1997 Toyota Camry LE

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

This should have been a 5 star review except for one thing. In the instruction for the 99 Toyota 4runner, it does not explain that you need to take out the amp located behind the stereo in order to connect your wiring harness (the wiring harness does not connect to the cables behind the stereo, it connects to the wires behind the amp). Other than that, this has been a fantastic product that I would recommend to everyone. I also purchased this sheet for a 97 camry and the instructions were very clear and helpful.

Pros: Helpful and clear Worth the cost

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

Instructions are pretty straight forward, the pictures/diagrams are the biggest help. The step by step was right on track, however some of the screw size descriptions were not correct, but as long as you have your nut-driver or socket set close at hand you'll be fine. There is really no reason for the auto makers to use 5-6 different size and style screws to put together a bunch of plastic. So with this being said, Crutchfield has done an excellent job with their instructions. My install was a first time DIY in a 2015 Jeep Wrangler.

Pros: clear, precise pictures and great step by step

Cons: No cons for me....I had my tools readily available.

Instructions tell you to file a notch in the speaker mounts so you can get the wires to the back of the speaker. However, there's hole in the inner door face right next to the lower wire guide. I poked my finger through; you could make a much smaller hole and seal it with tape if you're concerned about maintaining the vapor barrier. In any event, it's a lot easier than filing a notch in the speaker mount.

Pros: Instructions are mostly good, if succinct: "Remove x by using y." That doesn't BEGIN to tell you what it will actually be like.

Cons: Bad advice in one instruction

Very generic installation instructions. I did some research on youtube beforehand but purchased these instructions just to be safe, kind of regret the money I spent. It in no way goes into detail of how to wire up the new speakers in my door or A column, and is extremely vague on how to install an aftermarket tweeter in my 2012 Civic. If you need generic directions on how to remove your door panel, and various things you can find on youtube for free go ahead and purchase this.

Pros: Helpful in the most generic way possible.

The guide for my vehicle gave useful information about disassembling the dashboard and accessing speakers, but it did not help to identify the backup wire, Vehicle Speed Sensor wire or parking brake wire - all of which are required for GPS head unit installation. You won't find this information in the wiring harness instructions either, so you will need to search internet forums or vehicle service manuals or just start testing everything with a multimeter until you find the information you need.

Do Not Pay For These Instructions, installation instructions are generic and trim removal directions are easily searchable on the web and if you are going to attempt a DIY stereo install, you probably already know how to remove the trim pieces from your car. I thought this was going to be a comprehensive installation guide which includes how to do the wiring since the site asks for a lot of specifics about your car, down to the exact stereo spec. I only bought this because this was the guide that was included with the stereo bundle with the PAC and it would be a specific installation from receiver to PAC to vehicle.

Pros: trim removal description is vehicle specific but that is easily found on the web

Cons: generic installation instructions, doesn't even show sample wiring instructions

This helped with the replacement of the factory head unit and door speakers...but not the rear speakers! The Roadster (convertible) doesn't have the same enclosure as the coupe. You only have instructions for the coupe which doesn't help me at all. I'm searching everywhere and can't find instructions for removing rear panel to get to the rear speakers in the Roadster! I have a pro audio guy from here in Pittsburgh doing the install but he's never had a convertible 350Z model.

2009 Nissan Versa

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

This review is for the 2009 Nissan Versa MasterSheet instructions. Everything about the stereo is pretty straight forward but the speakers are a different story. The instructions say that you need to drill 1/8th inch mounting hole. After examining it with the speakers attached to the speaker brackets I couldn't find anyplace where a new mounting hole was required. The bracket lined up perfectly with the factory speaker holes. I did have to drill a new hole though to re-route the speaker wires using a 3/4th drill bit, I went this big so I could get the speaker wire plug through it. The speaker connection for the factory speaker was in the front of the speaker, the connection on the aftermarket speaker was on the back of the speaker, out of the way so there was no where for the wire to connect to the new speaker. I wish these instructions were more specific for this car. I had to do a bunch of guessing. I hope Crutchfield re-examines these instructions and makes corrections to them.

Pros:

Cons:

Almost perfect! Everything is accurate when trying to remove door panels and speakers. Only problem I had was trying to install tweets in the dash. Instructions were not clear enough to install them. Pictures on the MasterSheet had 2 wires showing when my toyota rav4 had 4 wires, there was also a mention of connecting the positive wires together but no color distinction was mention though I can't find any info on that in many site and forums so i guess its fine? Called support got a solution but holding off until I get the rest of my build.

I was hoping for installation help for the radio I bought. The instructions did not have any wiring help or diagrams. It said to consult the manual for the radio. I wasted my money. I was able to use the internet to figure out how to wire the radio. This will be helpful if I ever decide to upgrade the speakers in the door.

Pros: It is helpful for removing speakers and your stock radio. It looks like it is helpful for installing new speakers.

Cons: No help wiring the radio during installation. No schematics or wiring diagram. A waste of money. I found the information I needed on the internet.

2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

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

I have been using and referring others to Crutchfield for years. Perhaps I got to rely too much on the accuracy and complete nature of the Master Sheets over time but I was disappointed by my most recent version for the 2014-17 Sierra/Silverado. As expected, the directions were spot on for dash and console disassembly and even access to speaker locations in the door panels BUT there were no wire ID schedules to guide navigating the factory wiring harnesses forcing me to search on vehicle model forums for info; even more unforgivable are the door panel assembly directions which are as follows: 10. "Test speaker operation and reassemble by reversing disassembly steps." The problem here is they left out small but vital steps to re-assemble the doors without causing damage to the vehicle. I ended up having to go online and watch a YouTube video on the topic after struggling for an hour and bending locking rods and door panel clips.

Pros: Handy to have out in the driveway with half the car taken appart

Cons: Save your time and money just watch a YouTube video for your specific vehicle.

Incredible Guide

Ryan from Woodinville, WA on 9/27/2016

2006 Dodge Ram 1500

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

All of the information I find with Crutchfield is fantastic - and this guide is no exception. It is clear, concise, and ACCURATE! The only thing that could be added is someone here to actually turn the screwdriver. The photos are relevant and the easy step-by-step instructions gave me the confidence to do the install and know it was done correctly. Whenever I need audio installation or tutorials, I turn to Crutchfield first, and I have yet to not be able to find something to help or explain what I need. I just cant say enough how impressed I am with the level of detail and knowledge that is provided in an easy to understand format for people of all (or like me low) levels of skill and experience. Thanks Crutch!

Pros: Easy to read Excellent photos Accurate

Cons: I cannot think of any!

I purchased these instructions to help me get through installing a new stereo and speakers in my 2000 beetle I've never done it before and this provided key details that I didn't find anywhere else online.

Oh for negative stars.. I would NOT buy this product, and if you get it free with your order, DO NOT USE IT. The mastersheet is completely and totally wrong for my vehicle. It's recommendations has created damage to my vehicle. Do yourself a favor, and search out your car's service manual online.

Pros: None.

Jensen NAV RECEIVER

Gary J from Juneau, AK on 3/31/2016

2011 Ford F-350

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

The Crutchfield company built their reputation on selling to do it yourselfers. This implys that the company will supply detailed installation instructions that clearly explain how everything goes together. In this case, the detailed instructions were first of all, not detailed and second, very poor. There is no overall schematic showing how all the parts go together and some of the tools needed to do the job were not provided. I am still working on doing the install. Not a pleasant experience.

Pros: Jensen is a well known name & hopefully their unit will work well when I get it installed.

Cons: Install is a major pain when you are working with very poor instructions and don't have needed tools.
