MX5 stock / OEM radio into 626?

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone

 

I was wondering if anyone ever tried to install the OEM / original / default / factory radio, of a 2nd generation Miate / MX5 into the DIN slot of a 5th generation Mazda 626 (1992 - 1997).

 

Both looks like it has space for a Double DIN radio. The one in the MX5 sure looks like one, and I was thinking of installing a MX5 radio into my Doube DIN slot of my 626 (Ford Telstar TX5 version).

 

:unsure: Anyone tried this yet?

Its not visible with both the head unit and DIN pocket installed (or head unit and CD player), but there's a divider thats a part of the dash that splits the space into two single DIN slots. However you can probably dremel it off, after which it should fit. You will need the plug for the stereo however - late 90's onwards Mazdas used a different plug. You can get one off any 97 onwards 323, 626, etc.

Honestly though, for around $100 (here in Australia anyway) you can get a brand new head unit with an AUX input, USB, bluetooth, etc that will be infinitely better than one of these, that with around $40 or so of harnesses will be plug and play with the 626 and avoid having to hack up the 626's loom.
