Head Unit Install

Hey guys, new here! For XMAS I bought my wife a JVC KD-R300 cd player. Along with it I bought the recommended Metra install kit (95-3302). Since the cd-player is single din, and the metra kit is for either a double din OR 2 single dins..how can I use this kit? There is no pocket with it, and we don't have 2 cd players. What am I missing here?

CAR: 2006 Chevy Cobalt LS 4dr.

you can either make a little peice to cover up the bottom part but that would be a p.i.t.a. or just take it back and get the correct single din one

Yep, went to Bestbuy to return the one I bought online and got the right one. Hopefully will be doing the install later tonight!

you have to run your own power wire, fast and best way to do this is go to autozone and buy a "add-a-circuit" and plug it in you fuse box

or you buy the 'real' (but expensive) harness and do it without running your own power wire and save a bit of time and effort and everything will be done right and like stock.

Yes it is worth it to buy the real expensive harness. I did it the other way when I had my double din in and it killed my battery all the time. Thought it was because of the cold weather, but I put my stock radio in and it never died to this day

Go with the good harness. Makes the install easier. It also allows you to retain the warning chimes (with a switch to turn them off if you like.)

Current Mods: Eibach Pro-kit springs and anti-roll kit, KYB Excell-G struts and shocks, Moog sway links, Prothane Front Control Arm Bushings (coming soon)
