Sorry everyone - another question on my iminent Double Din Stereo install( 1999 C4 Cab UK)....Im trying to get all my bits together before the big install.....do you know anything about a metal support bracket that sits right at the back of the double din gap???

Its metal and double din-sized and I think provides rear support for the unit when in place. On my 1999 car it would appear that such a part does not exist although other install threads say its important - my OPC can find the bracket for cars 2002 onwards part 996 552 673 03)but the OPC say it wont fit my car - only 2002 onwards-and anyway they cant get it in for a while! Ive already order the new PCM compatible "frame" from them but that's made from plastic (and £80!!!) not metal.....

When I removed the CC panel there was the top top half there (which I removed) but not a whole frame???? The last stero int he car was also an after market one but it had been put in the top slot of the lower centre console.....Can you help or am I worrying over nothing?

The bit I need (i think ) is attached - found on another post - hope that is OK -

Oh and btw - anyone got any bright idea of how to route a cable through to the centre consol (by the handbrake) once I've got it into the cab storage area from the engine bay as per Lorens amazing instructions as usual......(see recent post!!)

I'd be surprised if the bracked didn't fit into your car as well. It is possible but I would not think that Porsche would have spent the money to redesign/configure the dash for the facelift cars. It may be that the part fits but just wasn't put into the pre-facelift cars. I'd suggest you look at www.6speedonline.com There are at least a couple threads on this, one of which is by a guy that did the complete facelift dash upgrade to get the 'new' cupholders.
