So last week my deck got stolen out of my locked car :(
The thieves left my wiring so that is good. I still had my OEM deck from before. I just needed to get new mounting brackets. I had Subaru order me some and they got here today. I am trying to install these into my car and I cant get it to fit for the life of me. Can you tell me if they are the right brackets and if they are on correctly? Before the flaming begins, please keep in mind that I admit I have no idea how to do stereo stuff. I am trying to learn and get back on the road with some tunes:banana:
Thanks
Mark

I think you have the brackets upside down. The tabs that are on the bottom of the stereo should be at the top. The tabs on the side suppose to be closest to the front of the stereo so you can just slide it into the spot like a lego.

I have a feeling these may be Outback ones and not Impreza/Outback Sport brackets. The holes are just not lining up!

Are you in an L? because I thought your stereo was different. You should post a pic so I can see.
