3.0 out of 5 stars Oh, those stupid fittings!!!, 28 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stereo Surround/Wiring Harness/Aerial Adaptor/Removal Keys for fitting Stereo/CD/Radio to: FORD: FIESTA Mk4 Mk5 (Oct 95 onwards) , ESCORT MK5 (Jan 95 onwards)
I read all of the reviews on this product before buying and many of them mentioned the tabs that hold the surround in place ("too brittle, break easily.") However, I needed the part for my wife's Mk4 Fiesta so I decided to go with it...

I hadn't even tried to mount the surround!! I was only slotting the stereo casing through the surround and BOOM, - 1 clip gone. Grrrr. I was deliberately not heavy handed as I had been warned.

So down to 3 clips, even more delicate now... the stereo case was now through the surround so time to slot it - ever... so... gently... into... the... BOOM! clip 2 gone, nooooooo!

I am not overexaggerating. These things would break if breathed on...

Anyhow it's in - The 2 bottom/top clips are not bad, it's the side ones that are brittle, so with a bit of cunning and the use of the unused tabs in the stereo mounting case, I got the thing home and somewhat secure. I guess that a reasonable car thief would laugh at the last comment!

The removal tools, loom adapter and aerial connector are all top notch so my only gripe is the surround and it's stupid little tabs.

I've given it 3 because it is only 1 item out of the bag...
