    Question Best place to mount touchscreen in 1996 clio?

    Hello everyone,

    I have a 1996 Clio and was thinking of getting a 'carputer' in there with a touchscreen however, I have a problem where to mount the screen as there doesnt seem to be an appropriate place, I thought of a motorized indash touch screen, but after measuring, this wont fit either, it only has a 2cm clearance from the actual place, which isn't really enough for a 1996 clio as it will fold up to hit the dash leaving the screen like: \_ << that. I have included pics of my dash and any comments are appreciated,

    Thanks!

    where is your current stereo?

    how deep is that pocket/stereo cover/ashtray thingy beneath your heating controls?

    urgh, my Ex used to have one of them - it is a very minimalist. If you want stealth you could put an indash xenarc behind the vents habd heve them flip up and the screen pop out

    other than that just mold it in next to the dial cluster above those switches and the vents.

    stereo is behind that gray cover below the vents,

    YOu could just take that cover off and put the screen there.

    It's about 20cm deep, and would house a motorized dash nicely except for when you eject it, it would just hit the bit below the heater control, The bit above the buttons isn't big at all, And would a 7inch touchscreen fit in the area of the stereo (the grey pull down bit) seems it would be too big and have the bottom sticking down Any ideas?
