  1. Sorry if I'm duplicating here but - Hi everybody, request for a bit more help please, when I googled the size of double din it says 180 x 100.3 mm. when I've measured the built in unit in the (2007) forester it comes to about 174 x 100 mm, definitely under 180 by at least 5mm, is that the difference in a bezel ? will a double din fit in place of the built in unit ? don't want to be trying to trim the dash panel ! Thanks Brian.

  3. Thanks Jay, hopefully take the unit out this weekend, can't see anything jammed in the cd slot, display just keeps flashing eject on cd 1 but nothing happens, no noise or anything. Will post when I've sorted it.
  4. Hi Tidgy thanks, It is certainly nicer to drive, more comfortable, quieter and warmer however it will never tow 3.5 tonne and won't plough through **** and ruts like a defender in low box will otherwise all good, thanks Brian. Have found a vid on youtube re taking the head unit out, would still like to know how, what , whether anyone has fitted aftermarket unit and got the steering wheel controls to work.
  5. Hi, just joined and introduced myself, have just acquired a 2007 forester with what I believe is a Kenwood SG5 or GX806EF2 CD / Radio 6 CD changer in double din. The Cd doesn't work as I think it has a disc jammed in. 2 questions, does anyone know how to remove the unit from the car as I expect it will need to be out to repair it and does anyone know a fix or how to get the cd out. Also just thought of a third, if I need to replace with an after market unit , any suggestions on steering wheel control compatible ones, thanks Brian.
  6. Hi, just bought a 2007 forester , need 4wheel drive (a good one I hope) while I rebuild my defender 90. It's in really good condition only 2 previous owners and 55k miles with full service history, so far so good. Only one issue with the cd player, I'll post question in the relevant forum. I need one working, especially now it's a car I can actually hear it in !
