I am desperately trying to find some help on replacing my factory mylink touchscreen with a kenwood double din. I have the double din but I cannot figure out which bezel and wiring kit to buy? It's a 2014 cruze diesel, but all of the kits I see are for cruzes without the touchscreen. If anyone can point me in the right directions I'd really appreciate it!!!!!

If anyone is curious the system details are:

2 12" SQ HDC3s
box will be 4.8 cubes before displacement tuned to 33 hz sealed from trunk
sundown 3k at .5 ohm
1 xs d3100 in rear and 1 xs d3400 up front
JP 240 amp alt
2 runs of + and - 1/0 sky high wire

Everything should sound pretty good, just need to figure out the double din first!

Old post but I put a 7" Double din flat screen where my monochrome screen was, it was pretty easy. I used a MyLink screen bracket and used screen brackets. I had to adjust back of radio a bit but it's pretty simple upgrade that looks stock, having a CANBUS box I was surprised when I decided to plug the faceplate of the OEM radio in that my buttons and volume knob worked, I programed each button from the headunit in correspondence to the function I wanted. Pretty happy with results.

It’s fairly simple. I’m sorry for late reply; I’m not a big forum person. I’ve been using the Binzine Android 7” with built in DSP, 32gig, etc. It is a decent headunit, sounds great as well. As for the Canbus, I’ve been getting the one on eBay that is identical to the harness that come with Tesla screens.

I will get some links and go from there, like I said it’s fairly simple.👍🏼

Mylink Screen Bracket, eBay is where I’ve been getting mine.

Android Headunit or whatever you prefer but the backing must be made so you can use the Mylink bracket. I prefer Binzine as their customer service is top notch. If you give them a good rating on Amazon they give you 25.00 and an additional 30.00 if you do a video review. You also need a CANBUS wiring harness. I found them on eBay.

1. Take metal brackets off your MyLink Bracket; You may have to cut the brackets to give you adjustment (Up and Down); once you get screen where you want it, get the smallest, self-tapping screws you can get and screw brackets into button of screen. You’ve got to be very careful so you do not hit your board or a ribbon cable inside. I always get radio wired up so I can get a good perspective to where I want to put my headunit on bracket. It all depends on the backing of the headunit is made. On my headunit I had to get my Dremel and cut each side bracket of the side Mylink brackets. Once you get that done you may want to get Gorilla Glue two-faced clear tape and put on top of headunit to bracket. It’s personal preference.

I highly recommend this Binzine Headunit, it’s got wireless CarPlay and Android Auto but for Android Auto you have to use a USB. It also has a built in DSP that is killer. I’m not into booming bass as I listen to rock music; I actually no longer needed my Amp that I was running with my Tesla radio. I know these Chinese Headunits are hit and miss but these Binzine units are great. I’ve had every brand out there and this is by far the best headunit I’ve purchased. It’s as good as my Harman Kardon factory setup in my new Subaru Forester Sport.
