  • Has anyone done such a thing???

    Hello all,

    I have a 2003 VW Golf and I've been searching for ideas and I can't find anything regarding something that I'm thinking of doing.

    After installing a touchscreen, most of the VW's I see have either:
    a) no headunit
    b) headunit in glove box, relocated, etc...

    Has anyone been able to keep the headunit behind the screen???

    I was thinking of having a 7" screen nicely fit in the dash and make it swivel down somehow to have headunit access that is directly behind the screen.

    I saw a pic of a stock Corvette where the screen pulls down a bit to have access to the cd drive.

    Anyone done this on any car? not just vw....

    I really hate the idea of having my headunit in the glove box or have no headunit at all.

    I had done a fabrication to my previous car (Nissan Maxima) but have sold this car and the vw's don't have as much room as my maxima had.

    thats doable... but its going to be a really big hassle, and you may have to use a smaller screen in order to fit the hardware on the sides in such a small area

      Thank you for replying.

      I keep thinking of different options and the new plan is to put the headunit at an angle where the ashtray is. It will probably be easier and i did some first fitments and it looks pretty good.

      I saw a thread where a guy from Germany i think moved the climate control in a passat - the output was very nice but too much hassle for me

          or have some sort of hinge behind the screen itself where it just does a BASIC drop down and have the radio directly behind it... the only problem is there usually is a space constraint behind the screen and you only have an inch or so of play, so having to squeeze the radio and wires and whatnot behind a screen might be a little more difficult...
