Thanks everyone, evntually got round to fit the stereo last weekend (opted for a JVC-KD-G722), didn't need a facia adapter just a PC2-17-4 wiring adapter. I installed it in the upper DIN just like in the picture from dovlagsi. I pretty much followed the instructions in this post by ae111sr and londoners pictures above, so thanks one and all.
Hi Everyone, I am considering removing the factory fitted stereo / radio cassette from my 2001 Corolla (old shape - E11?) and am looking for some advice. I have searched the forums and havent found any information. I have had a look around the internet and cant seem to find the correct facia adapter, I have had a look at www.autoleads.co.uk/database/Corolla.html and the fp-11-04 model they are suggesting doesnt look like it will fit, has anyone replaced the stereo and if so which adapter and leads did you buy? Also any hints for removing the stereo from the dash? The dash (click thumbnails for larger picture):
