Hello,

I have just purchased my c3, I would like to know how I could have a double din touch screen in my car. I have seen this video
They have moved the Air con unit and I would like to know if anyone can assist me with a guide or an alternative. Thank you.
Moved the AC unit to allow room for double din screen.

Its sounds like a lot of work, a simpler solution could be the Double DIN Screen in Single DIN unit on ebay.

And this one fitted on an earlier C3 to preserve the original factory stereo which is required to access the clock settings

Thank you for the quick replies, where could I buy that complete kit from?

I did think of a single din screen but this would cover the air con buttons when the screen is out.

Yes, the screen does seem to get in the way when extended :(

I couldn't find a supplier for the parts, it looks like they are still in development as there is no price mentioned and the probable manufacturer has no mention on their website https://autoprost.com/.

I found the picture here https://minkara.carview.co.jp/en/partsre ... 34&mo=8823

Hey all! Sorry for bringing up an old thread, but was there any infomation on how to get the single din stereo to work, I have been rakeing my brain on how to do it but I cannot come up with a way, I need to keep my factory radio for the same reasons, Clock (Changing from MPH to KMH as i drive abroad alot). Halfords refuse to even attempt it.

You keep the original factory radio and add an aftermarket,

Some put it under the passenger seat, others in the space in the dash, like this one:
