I bought the whole upgrade kit from Dynamic Sounds, this came with absolutely everything needed to act as a straight swap and still keep the steering controls.

Everything went straight forward until the end when I noticed mine also didn't fit flush. This is simply the dashboard itself on the Civic. I had to take a thin knife and trim away some of the dashboard exo away which then allowed it to pop straight in and fit flush.

The part you cut out can not be seen at all as it is inside the dash.

I am removing mine this weekend as I will be selling the car but I will then sell the Dab unit/ Honda upgrade kit etc separately so I will take pictures of where I have cut and post them to hopefully help make more sense.
I will also take pictures of how it is currently sitting before I remove it, that way you can see it does sit flush all round.
Hi, did you take the photos? I'm also struggling to get mine flush. Ta

Hi mate, still not taken it out. It's this weeks job!
In fact, I will do it tonight and then I can get the photos. Nice enough day for it




Kind Regards

Hi Guys

Shot in the dark with all the knowledge on here!

Sony XAV-AX3005DB fitted on Saturday at Halfords, only to find out there is ZERO sound output.

I've a Nov 2016 Civic 1.6 diesel - they've said my model is "amplified" and they are going to contact Connect2 about the kit this week as only one kit is listed for my model but it doesn't work with the sound system on my model unless there is a different connection they need to get???

I had a choice of put the original Honda unit back in but I chose to have the new Sony unit as I've found I can use my Airpods to at least hear my music, podcasts and use Siri!

Hopefully I'll hear from them today/tomorrow - just wondered if one of you who've already fitted something similar can think of something being missed here or why it won't work. Seems strange this amplified/non-amplified issue.

Hoping they can sort it easily.

I presume there is no way at all to get the Honda reversing camera on my model to hook up as apart from the sound that's the only other thing not working.

Thanks!

Hi all. Apologies it’s taken so long to reply but finally got round to posting this up!!
I have removed my apple car play double din, simply as I may be selling the car so will be selling this on separately as only fitted it in January!

Below are pics of the dash I cut out to allow a nice flush fit. It didn’t harm anything and the fascia and radio still clipped in securely.

Also pics attached of it fitted showing it is a flush fit

Hope this helps some people

Kind Regards
Jason
