Hello my landmate and welcome on TOC! Nice to see some more finns on the forum :)

This is a known issue and is described in this topic. But so that you wouldn't need to scroll through all of the 13 pages I can tell you straight away that you need to sand the black frame in order to fit it inside the fascia. This is what I did to mine aswell.

BTW was your fascia painted from the shop or did you custom paint it afterwards? If you bought it that way, where did you get it from?

Would be also nice to hear some more about you and your car!

Good luck with your project :)

Okay, I've to do that. Do you have pictures of your trim plate? I'd like to check first that I have understood correctly :)

My fascia color was black and local painter painted that on correct color. I didn't find anywhere through fascia with correct color.

Would be also nice to hear some more about you and your car!

I will tell more when my "hifi project" is going forward. I think that updating my music system is only what I will do on my car (...perhaps :))

Don't have any clear pics of mine, but here's an explanation of the process with pictures to clarify.

Ok I had same issue with my fascia, had to match the colour and custom paint it. Not a 100% match though so I'd like a colour coded fascia if I could find one somewhere.

Nice, will be waiting for the updates. Hope there will be more than you're planning ;)

Now it's installed. Everything goes well and I'm very satisfied the result. Second step is update speakers and add amp/subwoofer.

Btw. The steering wheel controls didn't works as I wanted. When I press vol+ HU change radio frequency up and same happens with vol-. Up arrow button change volume down. Mode button is only what's worked fine. Very weird :o

Does anybody have a working steering wheel controls on Pioneer HU?

I placed an order for new stalk adapter from Pioneer. Adapter is Auris compatible but still same problem. I think it´s just plug n play adapter and don´t need any programming, am I right?

Any good ideas for solving this problem? :g:

    • Replacing the media system in '13 Auris
      By Rafal P.
      Hey guys!
      I felt a desire, to upgrade some features in my 3yo Auris. I've got a '13 Icon edition and I was hoping to install one of the Pioneer's toys in it, replacing the default media system.
      Not being a mechanic nor the enthusiast about cars, I went to my local Toyota dealer, asking them, if they could fit one in for me. In the response, I got very simple and straight "No". Asking why, they've said "It's part of the dashboard. Why don't you get a new car instead?".
      Now, I would like to hear some voice of reason, from real enthusiasts not the sales people.
      So, quickly few questions:
      Did anybody replace the system in their car? Do I need to do it on my own, not knowing anything about it? Does it break anything in the car, as "part of the dashboard" disappears?
      Thanks in advance.
    • Live Wire From Iso Connector?
      By mk1yaris10
      I have used an ISO adapter which came with my fascia (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Toyota-Yaris-2003-2006-Radio-Stereo-Facia-Fascia-Fitting-Kit-Adaptor-/171185407294?hash=item27db72053e). Does anybody know what colour the live feed is on the ISO connector?
      Thanks!
    • Fascia For Double Din Headunit In 7Th Gen Celica
      By Ryder23
      Hi,
      Just hoping for some advice regarding a fascia for a double din headunit.
      I have just bought a Pioneer AVH-X2600BT headunit for my 2006 Celica T Sport.
      I have got the unit in and working great, but there is a gap on either side of the unit, as well a small gap on the top and bottom (see pic below)

      After some research it seems most people use the fascia from the original Sony unit - however, my car had the Toyota unit, not Sony, which has no fascia that I can use.
      I've had a look online for fascia kit but have been unable to find anything suitable, just the side inserts like this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CT24TY09-Toyota-Celica-2000-2006-Car-Stereo-Radio-Double-Din-Facia-Fascia-Panel-/251593503746?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item3a94243402
      Does anyone know where I can find a suitable fascia?
      Thanks
