2-Din Question Need Help Fast!!!

Hey Guys,

My girlfriend has a 2005 Mercury Mariner with the Mach stereo package. I came across the Pioneer AVH-P3200BT 2 din dvd player on amazon for $300 on sale. Both Amazon and Crutchfield say this will not fit the vehicle. I called Crutchfield who said the Mariner only has 3 9/16th inch height and the Pioneer deck needs 3.9 inches so I'm about a half inch off. Has anyone install a Pioneer 2din in there vehicle or can confirm there is no way it will fit? I haven't had the bezel off or radio out of her car so I don't know what is behind it.

I also then came across this Scosche 2 din mounting kit. It looks like it has the deck out a little bit from the dash. If the deck won't fit on its own do you think I would be able to purchase this then cut the plastic kit on top or botton on the mounting kit if need be to install the deck? I'd like to figure out if I can make this work while it is still on sale. Thanks Guys! ... pd_sim_e_4

I haven't done it either but everyone that's installed a double DIN in the earlier Escapes has had to cut the opening as shown in the photo you posted. Most people use a dremmel. At least one person used a utility knife. He felt it made a cleaner cut. Good luck and please post a picture of the final product. :peace:
