Arrow Question !!!

Hello Everybody,

Thanks Custom 3 for the understanding DIY.

If I want to remove the CD player and replace the climatronic unit instead of the sun-glass unit, will there be any space to install a multimedia unit like this one?

check the link ...

you have to keep checking...ebay doesnt always have the same prices...you can sometimes find them used for $40 and the next day for $250.

I don't think this is foolproof...
Some people going from an older climate control to a newer get a reading of "NC" on the display
