fitting service available.
1. Remove the console fitting kit from inside the console.
Place the pod on the dashboard sitting as close to the instrument binnacle as
the mounting bracket will allow. The mounting brackets should be sitting on the
metal part of the dashboard in front of the crash pad. If positioned
the pod will follow the contours of the dashboard and will allow enough space
for the passenger's quarter
window to demist and operate effectively.
Step 3. Using a marker pen or pencil, trace onto the dashboard the shape
of the hole on the inside of the mounting bracket.
Step 4. Drill two
9/64" holes in the dashboard on the extreme
outside edge of the marks
you have made on the dashboard.
- the holes should be positioned as close
to the outside of the
mounting brackets as possible to allow enough space
screw head and snap caps. (If the pod is removed at a later date,
the screws and snap caps provided in the "console fitting kit" can be
used to cover these holes).
Step 5. Fit your radio(s) and accessories
to the pod - see the "instructions on installing a radio into a console"
and the "radio fitting kit" supplied with the console.
How to run your wiring or antenna leads to the pod:
- for vehicles with a genuine pod fitted when the vehicle was
All wiring can be run through the hole in the dash board for
the genuine pod's wiring loom. The power and earth wires for the genuine pod can
also be utilised for your radio(s) or accessories.
- for vehicles that did not have a genuine pod fitted when manufactured.
There is no need to drill a hole through the dashboard to run your wiring or antenna
leads. Wiring can be fed through the gaps at either end of the dashboard. Or,
for a neater appearance the wiring can be positioned between the plastic demister
vent and the hole in the dashboard for the demister vent. You will need to cut
a notch out of the front of the pod (the windscreen side of the pod) for your
wiring, to allow the pod to sit flush with the dashboard.
7. Connect the wiring to your radio(s) and accessories. Coil up any excess
wiring inside the pod. Place the pod onto the dashboard ensuring that the mounting
brackets line up with the holes that you have drilled.
Step 8. Open
the "console fitting kit". Place the snap cap washers under the heads
of each self tapping screw.
Step 9. Screw both mounting brackets onto
the dashboard. Press the snap caps onto the snap cap washers for a neat appearance.
