Default Re: anyboby want to know how to install headrest tv monitors made easy (Jonathan_EH)

ok folks finally found the article and it is a long but worth process. NOTE: This using the OEM Double-DIN Bracket.

Step 1: In the regular kit you get a second headrest(Tv already flushed into it) A/V controller,and a set of wires is all it's missing. SSP will install the VizualLogic VL 5500 DVD Player as a source for the screen.

Step 2: Then get a deck that has an auxiliary so u can route it thru the auxiliary instead of the FM Modulator.

Step 3: Take out old HeadRests

Step 4: If the Clear plastic Protector around the A/V connector is too big take a heat gun or hair dryer and shrink it down.

Step 5: The A/V connector is fed thru the post hole

Step 6: Then down through the seat back and out the bottom of the seat.

Step 7: Then the new HeadRest with Flushed in Monitor is put in place.

Step 8: Run the A/V connector lines under the center console, so it comes out next.(This tray pops right out after being pried out with a standard screwdriver.)

Step 9: With the tray gone you should be able to access the two screws that hold the console down.

Step 10: Two screws at either end and on opposite sides of the console are the last fasteners to come out before it is completely free.

Step 11: (If you have a manual transmission) Unscrew the shift **** and then pull the center console up and move it out of the way for right then.

Step 12: Lines coming from the monitors are run beneath the seats and along this bundle under the console. ZipTie the wires to the bundle.

Step 13: Then, 12V power connectors are routed to the A/V controllers, but no power is running thru the lines yet.

Step 14: Both control units are mounted under the console near the dash with double-sidded tape. NOTE: The RCA video cable going from one box into the other instead of splitting the video out from the DVD player to the two monitor controllers so video need only go to one unit.

Step 15: The lead comming form the monitor is hooked up to an intermediate connector.

Step 16: The intermediate connector gets plugged into the A/V controller.

Step 17: Crawl up into the dash now to hook up the power and swap out the old deck. First, unsnap the bezel that fits around the center console.

Step 18: Next, remove the two 8mm retaining bolts underneath that secure the head unit/climate control assembly to the dash.

Step 19: With the two retaining bolts gone, the head unit/climate control pod should pull right out.

Step 20: Before you pull it completely out disconnect the antenna lead and any connectors that are attached to the stereo and climate controls.

Step 21: Instead of using a aftermarket install kit use the stock provisions for install to mount the new deck. This means total access to the head unit retaining screws on either side of the OEM Bracket. You have to remove the climate control cluster. It's held in with three screws. Pull off the ***** in the front first before trying to remove the cluster.

Step 22: The old deck is taken out and replaced with the new deck. The bottom half of the Double- DIN opening will be occupied by the VizuaLogic DVD player.

Step 23: An AfterMarket trim bezel is test-fit to see if everything will gel together.

Step 24: Reattach the Climate Control Clutser to the instrument pod.

Step 25: The DVD player's audio out cable is hooked up to the new deck's auxiliary jacks.

Step 26: Attach a new wire harness to the new deck using butt connectors.

Step 27: Then take the new deck to the dash and connect the harness to the factory connector. Additionally , power is routed to the DVD player, the pre-amp outputs are hooked up to the amp RCAs , and then the video lead going to the A/V controller is plugged in.

Step 28: the assembly is pushed back and re-secured from underneath. the bezel and center console are also returned.

Step 29: Sit back and watch a DVD.

That really doesn't say how to do anything except the wiring, which most people should already know.

You're not installing the monitor into the headrest; just running the wiring using a custom headrest. A monkey can do that Click the image to open in full size.
