CD changer mount

Ive just bought a cd changer for my Stilo Abarth and fitted it in no time. It came with one of these -

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Fiat-Stilo-Glo...QQcmdZViewItem

Which doesnt even remotely fit in my glovebox!!! (so at the moment the changer is wedged in with the owners manual until I come up with a more permanent solution)

Question is......is my Abarth different to other Stilos? My glovebox is only about 12" wide....the adaptor is at least 6" wider than that!

Re: CD changer mount

Mine too, exactly the same................
i assume you're trying to fit it in the top glovebox?

When i fitted mine, i think i had to remove the original mount and replace it with the one you put the link for, fitted perfectly.

Strip out the old liner and i think there is a recess to thread the cable to the back of standard head unit. i had to remove this to attach the cable.

Rest assured, its not just you, I didnt find this top glovebox till a good 2-3 months into owning my Stilo, it just looked like a normal dash, and like a prat I installed my cd changer in the cars boot attached to the back seat. Now I have an empty top glove box, For Fux SAKES...
