Today I tried test mounting a 780 radio frame into my 945 (model year 1991) just to see how it fits. I noticed two things:
a) The lower part of the 780 frame hits two of the relais on the front row (= closest to me) on the right. That would mean that I have to remove part of the plastic on the bottom of the frame. I can't remember ever reading about it. Did I do something wrong while putting the frame into the space above the relais?
b) The space where the 780 frame goes seems to be very tight. I had to use a little force to get it in. I tried a taxi-frame too, it too barely fits, on the lower half of the frame. The top just fits fine. Is that normal?
The 780 frame has three mounting holes for screws. The top two are no problem (except on my 780 frame. Someone gave it to me for testing. It's missing some pieces. Like the two top mounting holes
). But does the lower screw use the same hole in the dashboard that the cigaret lighter frame uses in my 940?
And what holds the ashtray in its place when the 780 frame is mounted inside the 940?
