Have just purchased a cde-100 for an mx3. Does the "mounting sleeve" come with the unit? If so, is it attached to the unit as shipped? I am studying the installation instructions. Are there more explicit...


mounting sleeve is on the radio when you buy it in most of my experiences.

reinforcing the HEAD UNIT-(the cd player itself) with metal straps means that the DIN(the hole the radio goes into in your dash, either single or double) dash piece is probably made of a softer material, and you should mount a small metal strap, usually does not come with the unit, to the units mounting sleeve, and then mount it to the inside of the dashboard of the car with some screws or bolts. this will keep the cd player from moving around, bouncing, etc while you drive over bumps and such.

you could probably get some metal mounting straps either from the box the radio comes in (very few come with them) or get a dash install kit from an auto parts store or a walmart for your car that will probably include all of the things you need including the dash piece, any mounting hardware, and metal straps the factory recommends or deems necessary, and even a wiring harness adapter.

How do I attach my garmin to my dash mount?


The Garmin Nuvi 255w comes with a three piece dash mounting kit. A round disk smooth on one side tape on the other to affix to the dash (most dashes ar textured and the suction cup will not hold to textures) a suction cup arm with a ball end, and a bracket with a receiver for the ball. Snap the bracket and arm together, this can take a little effort. mount the disk to your dash in a place that doesn't obstruct your view of the road. then place the arm/bracket on the disk and push the lever down creating suction to hold the mount to the dash.
Another option it the beanbag dash mounts that hold the arm without sticking to your dash.

If this answered your question please check +. If not please elaborate on your queston

What accessories to use for what?


You would use your windshield mount and suction it to the plastic horse shoe mount as a dash mount, and there is tons of other mounting options that you may wish to look at.
You can find many different TomTom mouting solutions such as vent mount, viser mount, cup holder mount, vehicle specific mount, windshield mount along with dash mount options at www.autonavdirect.com or www.autonav2000.com.
Good Luck

Best way to mount on dash


Go to garmins web site; https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=13431&locale=en_EN#accessoryTab
Click on Accessories. From the list click on Portable Friction Mount.
Weather conditions will not affect this friction mount.
You may find the mirrow-mount setup from Ram mounts a better alternative;

How to separate the face plate housing from the player


It sounds like you need a din size extension. Metra and Schosce both have them. It goes behind the can then mount the can to that and your dash. If it is and ISO mount (radio mounted to brackets in the dash) the its in the wrong screw holes.

Last would be to file the dash bezel to allow fitment.

I need to find out the weiring diagrame to install it


Equalizers Like a crossover, the equalizer gets installed between your receiver and your amplifier. The outputs will be preamp connections to your amplifier. You'll find EQs that are designed to be installed in the dash, above or below your receiver. Others are designed to be mounted in a remote location, like the trunk. Either way, the wiring connections required will be the same. To install:
1. Mounting the equalizer:
A remote-mount EQ can be securely mounted with just a few screws. Anywhere between the receiver and the amp is fine. Most people mount the EQ in the trunk near their amp, especially if you have more than one amp. This also makes it easier to add additional amps later. You should mount it where it will be easy to get to so that you can make adjustments without too much trouble. Don't mount your EQ directly on steel — you will invite noise problems. Instead, install it on a non-conductive board and attach the board to the car body (or use rubber grommets under the screws to isolate the crossover).
An in-dash EQ can be mounted above or below your in-dash receiver, assuming that you have space available in the dash. This will require custom installation work. Another option is installation below your dash, in a universal under-dash mounting kit. To install the under-dash mounting kit, attach it to the mounting surface using the supplied self-tapping screws. In most cases, the use of an under-dash kit will require modifications to the kit or to the mounting surface.
3a-xover.jpg Locate the remote turn-on lead behind your radio (usually a blue wire). 3b-xover.jpg Connect the turn-on lead from your amplifier wiring kit to the blue wire. You can wrap the bare wire ends together and cover with electrical tape, or use solder. 2. Making the power connections:Your EQ will require 12-volt power, ground, and turn-on signal connections.
  • To obtain 12-volt power: Cut a length of small-gauge cable (16 gauge is typically sufficient) long enough to reach from the EQ location to your vehicle's fuse panel. Strip one end of the wire, and attach it to the EQ's power input. This may require a crimp-on connector, or bare wire might be sufficient, depending on the equipment you're installing. Route the wire from the EQ location to your car's fuse panel. Using a fuse tap, connect the wire to a source of switched 12V power.
  • To ground the EQ: Remove a bolt near the EQ mounting location. Crimp a ring terminal to one end of a length of small-gauge wire, and then bolt the terminal tightly to the vehicle's metal chassis. Scrape away any paint and clean the bolt location thoroughly. If you can't find a convenient ground screw or bolt, drill a hole for one — be careful not to drill into the gas tank or a gas or brake line.
  • Making the turn-on connection: In most cases, you can tap into your in-dash receiver's amp turn-on lead to get a turn-on signal for your EQ. Remove the receiver from the dash to access the turn-on wire (usually a blue wire). For step-by-step instructions on removing your vehicle's radio, see your vehicle-specific Crutchfield MasterSheet™, or read our In-Dash Receiver Installation Guide. Strip the insulation off a small section of this wire coming from the radio. Strip the insulation off another small-gauge cable that's long enough to reach from the in-dash receiver to the EQ, then connect the two with crimp caps or solder. Wrap the solder or crimp connection with electrical tape to guard against a short. Using wire ties to secure the wire, route the turn-on lead behind your dash all the way to the EQ mounting location.
3. Making the signal connections:
In most cases, you'll be routing RCA cables from your in-dash receiver's preamp outputs to the inputs of your EQ. While your receiver is out of the dash to access the turn on lead, connect a set of RCA patch cables (long enough to reach your crossover in its mounting location) to these outputs, taping them together so they won't come apart. Route the patch cables (again using wire ties) behind the dash, and to the crossover mounting location.

Everytime i put it on my dash it on the dash it comes loose and falls off my dash . no matter how carfully we mount it


Try using a friction mount. Its basically a bean bag mount with rubber grips on the bottom to prevent it from sliding on the dash. Much easier to remove than a window mount. Try looking on eBay for "friction mount" and also typing in the model of your GPS.
