  • Any Ideas on a 91 Suzuki Vitara Dash install?

    Hi again,

    Looking how to fabricate my dash install.

    This is my current dash



    I wasnt to have a Lilliput 7" Touch Screen and a Slimline or Slot loading DVD drive under it, with 2 USB connectors there..

    Any ideas??

    I've got some ideas, but dont know how to carry them out ??

    Remove the vents , put the ac controls down in the din, and the LCD in the AC + vent slots.

      keep the vent, cut out the section seperating the cd player and the ac controls...then move the ac controls up to the headliner and put the head unit in the glove box or something.

          *Noob Alert!!* Whats a headliner??

          I wanted to see about changing the current AC controls, and change it for a nice arrangement, like off a mondeo or something but I wouldnt know if i have the skills to change over the controls... Would i need to change the heating element too, is this a major redesign?

          I dont knwo about cutting out the vents but there is a coin tray about the vents, i could relocate them to on there, and move the AC controls to the DIN.. and then cut out the cigarette section (i dont allow smoking in my car) and fit the head unit in to that gap.

          sound mad?

            put the ac controls where the two lights are on the head liner above the dash (the headliner is the pastic peice on the celling) I'll try to find the link of someone that went that way.

              Wow, that would be mega different, but i gently took my dash apart and my AC seems to be actual wires from the sliders to the control unit behind the dash.... I dont know if i could move them right up there and still have them connected....

                    yeah, thats an idea... how easy would it be to change sliding AC controls for twisty turny dials?

                    Any ideas?

                        many people change the location of the ac controls...usualy people relocate headunits by extending the wires with catV cables. but if you run it too far the current wont be strong enough to power the unit.

                            Not doable. The way its made , is its cable that pull on mechanisms. (imagine a bicycle , when you change gears , you press on a lever and that lever pulls or presses on the cable).

                              Sorry, i didnt explain myself too well... the wires i am talking about are actual steel thick wires, like a coat hanger kind of wire, (not that thick though) not for current but manual moving something in the control unit.?
