Surely your hand can reach up the inside from the bottom then?

Just screwed in as normal with some pilot holes. Worked perfectly as the plastic is much thicker than I thought.

What type of saw should I use to cut the hole for the radio in the dash?

Thanks.

If you have a template, mark the cut line where you want it (check behind the console to make sure there's enough room in the rear) use a drill to drill the corners on the inside of the cut line & cut between the corner holes with a jigsaw/padsaw/disc cutter. It's worth covering the area that you are going to be cutting with masking tape to protect against scratches.

It's polyolefin so silicone won't bond properly. It is also relatively soft so don't worry it won't crack the way people have suggested.

in that case, ignore the bit in my last post about using a disc cutter. Use a coarse (ish) saw, if you use a jigsaw, set it to the lowest speed poss.
