I recently purchased a Metra 99-7505 install kit for my '03 Protege5 from CircuitCity. The guys there assured me it was the correct kit and this forum said it was the correct model. I opened the bag it came in and it had screw tabs on the sides of the face. After I got the factory radio out, I realized there was nowhere to attach these tabs. After being reassured that this was the correct kit, I decided that the tabs had to be optional so I broke them off. After I broke the tabs off it crossed my mind that I may have gotten the wrong kit in the wrong bag. I held the kit up to the opening and it was too wide.
I'm afraid that I have just lost my money because this kit is not going to fit.
