The radio mounts from the back side of the kit using ISO mount screws. You cannot mount the radio using the metal sleeve as with most other installations. The instructions that came with the Scosche kit illustrate this method.
I just replaced the factory stereo in my vehicle yesterday, and found at the local parts store a mounting kit, and a wire harness kit, which made it a 45 minute install, and it looks professional. I spent less than $30 dollars on both pieces, and everything was explained in detail, and no wires were cut, keeping the factory harness intact!
u should have 4 holes in the facia of the cureent radio. use a pair of thin wire type rods in the holes this will release the radio , pull out and diconnect the lead which should be ISO and disconect the aerial and fitt the new unit no problems, if aerial is a black small connector you will need and adaptor, if not great. use the cage that comes with the kenwood or you may not get it out later. if the hole on your model is larger than the kenwood you need a facia plate to sort ths.
If this is a self installed system, make sure you mount the little strip of metal they provide, to the back of the stereo. This can sometimes be a daunting task, but if the back is not secure, the cd player will jump violently when you hit a bump.
never done one before but if like all other vauxhalls there is 4 grub screws. you need allen key to take out. New vauxhall has wider pin holes than old type so you'll need to cut wire coat hanger into to U shaped bits insert into each side from were you removed the grub screws. slighlty push the wire away from each other and try and grab a slot or something on the face of the radio to pull out. When you have done this look into the cage of the radio and in the back there should be a screw or bolt normally 8mm to remove. Cage should come out then. Disconect plugs from cage and ready fro new radio.
Shouldn't need to take out *too* much. I've changed the stereo in my last two Commodores.
Usually, you'd unclip the shifter-surround, which then exposes more screws for the DIN units. Undo those, and take out the ash-tray if it's nearby... eventually you'll get to the DIN mounting-bracket and be able to unscrew and unplug the existing headunit. Wiring and crimping the new unit into the existing wiring loom is fiddly, but you can buy adapters from Strathfield Car Radio to convert most popular brands to Commodore's/Falcons/etc.
A full guide with pictures is a bit much for this response, but that's the general jist!
