Dice w/radio interface installation issue

I am installing my Dice Silverline Pro w/ radio interface and can't seem to fit the radio back in after connecting the new harness, etc. 2003 325iT w/ Business CD radio. Is there a "trick" as to where to stuff wires and still have room to slide radio back in? Thanks for any help!

Same thing happened to me. It took me forever to figure out what to do. I ended up taking out the whole bracket that holds the radio and ac controls out. To do this you remove the top two screws above the screws that hold in the radio. Then you take out the ac controls. To do this you push it from behind when the radio is out. Then you see two screws at the bottem of the bracket. Take those out too. Next remove the air vents by pulling UP and OUT. Mine were really hard to pull out. I have been told to be careful when doing this. Now put the harness out side of the bracket to the left of the air vent. (it will make sense when you have it all out). Also, make sure no wires are in the way of the big pointy thing at the back of the radio and the hole it fits into. I hope this helps. Let me know if you get it. Good luck!

P.S. This would be a good time to route the ipod cable to the sunglass single din holder if you want it there.

kurtnhl,
Tom at EAS emailed the installation supplement covering this issue. Wish I had had it before I started installation. But, everything fit fine in the space above radio hole, just like you did. And I did route ipod cable to the sunglass holder after drilling a hole to fit small end of cable through.
Dice works great so far! Much better than Grom I'm sending back.
Thanks for your help.
Phil

Anytime. Unfortunantly you are enjoying yours before mine. I had to get a replacement because mine started malfunctioning after the first use. haha. Oh well, I am glad I could help.
