Hi guys. I'm going to install the car DVD by myself. I wanna get it done and make it work perfectly. It's so embarrassed to say that I don't have many mechanical experiences. But I have searched some information from the Internet. Some said I don't have to be a professional, and I have to do is to follow the instruction.
I'm looking for some tips to help me with it. And the exact position for the device is the dashboard of the front seats. Is it real complicated to mount it? What about the tools? Hope you guys can provide me some useful information.

You might try the auto forum for help: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/forum...sprune=7&f=160

I did a dashboard radio a few years ago and it was easy. Everything is modular these days. Crutchfield has guides and customer support.

Yeah, it should install similar to a radio. The main thing about DVD players in cars is if they sit where the driver can see it, it has to be connected to the parking brake. By law, you're not supposed to watch videos in cars unless they're parked, so the makers rig the players so they play when the parking brake is set. It can be bypassed, but you'd have to search for the method.

I only know it can be done because I've seen it. But I don't know the details.

Also, if you're caught driving with the video playing, it will earn you a ticket.
