changing standard radio/cassette

Just bought a 2000 punto, and gotta have a CD player.

Following the help on the site here, got the old radio out, got a new sony cd/radio wired in and sounding great. Got a replacement facia, but can I get the new stereo and facia to lock home - NO!

They are sitting about 3mm proud and will not got in any further. It doesn't feel like the wiring in the way, something more solid. I've even tried knocking out the plastic support at the back of the radio hole to no avail.

All suggestions appreciated - I'm a very frustrated installer!

I dont know what the problem is mate but a word of advise if you havent already destroyed the bit of plastic at the back of the stereo leave it as this hold the system securly in place and stops the CD fron skipping over bumps.

Sensible mods go far
