Head Unit Backplate
Im having issues getting my head unit to sit right in my dash seems there isnt enough room for the harness with the back plate there, should i remove the stereo back plate? or am i just not getting everything to sit right? ANY and all help would be appreciated

I had to cut the back plate trim inside the dash out to fit my head unit as well. Did it 2 years ago, and have noticed no ill effect.

did u cut the whole thing out or just enough to allow the harness?

I removed almost all of the rear portion of the compartment. My single din head unit was too long to fit as well, so I had to remove a large portion of the compartment to allow the face of my head unit to fit flush. If I remember right, there was a metal brace at the rear of the compartment that I had to remove as well.
