Car: 1998 V70<p>Goal: remove SC-813 and install aftermarket single-DIN unit<p>Question 1: Is this the correct wire harness adapter?<br><A HREF="http://www.crutchfield.com/S-JXLx2g2TWkx/cgi-bin/ProdView.asp?I=120709220" TARGET="_blank">http://www.crutchfield.com/S-J...09220</A><p>Question 2: Is this the correct dash pocket?<br><A HREF="http://www.crutchfield.com/S-JXLx2g2TWkx/cgi-bin/ProdView.asp?I=120889000" TARGET="_blank">http://www.crutchfield.com/S-J...89000</A><p>Question 3: Are the better quality/fit dash kits for this model + year? Reviews aren't stellar, and I seem to remember seeing someone here order one through their dealer?<p>Bonus Question: I will look it up again on this forum, but anyone want to give me a freebie and walk me through sequence of disconnecting battery, removing old unit, etc. etc.?<p>PS - Crutchfield wont ship to Canada, so other retailers have been located for the adapter....but the dash fit kit is being a real bear. Also located..<p>from <A HREF="http://bestkits.com/MetraXRef2.pdf" TARGET="_blank">http://bestkits.com/MetraXRef2.pdf</A><br>Metra 98-9999 Best BKUPK750 Volvo pocket<br>Metra 88-00-9000 Best BKUPK750 For/Mazda/Nissan/Toyota/Volvo pocket<p>Opinions, suggestions......Thanks!

Here's a link with lots of great info:<br><A HREF="http://volvospeed.com/vs_forum/index.php?showtopic=7420" TARGET="_blank">http://volvospeed.com/vs_forum...=7420</A><p>I also used a Metra single pocket to fill space when I had an aftermarket unit in my dash. It looked ok but not terrific. There is a Volvo pocket as well that you can get at the Dealer. I can't find the part number at the moment but they can look that up for you. It might look better.<p>As for harness adapters, that's the right one.

Fantastic, and thanks!<br>Just to be clear, that awesome guide appears to be for a 850; same steps apply?<p>This the pocket you were refering to?<br><A HREF="http://volvospeed.com/vs_forum/index.php?showtopic=19882&hl" TARGET="_blank">http://volvospeed.com/vs_forum...82&hl</A>=<br>If so, I am starting to gather that <B>some</B> parts that "fit" (i.e. look good/ match well) with the 850's also carried over to the S/V 70s...<BR><BR>

someone can chime in if I'm wrong but 98 V70s are pretty much the same as 850s in many respects including this one I believe. I know mine looked this way and certainly all Volvo HUs require the same process from this generation to remove (very easy) so it should be the same wiring behind it.<p>As for the pocket. Yes, that's the thread I was looking for. Keep in mind that 850s have a dark black color trim inside vs V70s which are slightly grayer so there in lies the problem but you'll run into the same thing w/ the Metras b/c they are dark black.
