Default CD Player Install Kit?



With an install kit like that, which parts will be used? My car right now already has the main piece with the storage pocket installed, with a cd player in too.. but the bottom doesn't snap into the dash, so the cd player kinda leans out, and the storage pocket area sticks out and it kinda rattles/makes it easy to take the whole assembly out (easy to steal too)

I looked at: http://www.installdr.com/InstallDocs...PDF/466037.pdf

And it says the piece that I have just "Snaps" into place, but it's not working.. the bottom isn't snapping into place. I just wanted to check here first before paying $20 plus shipping then it be something my CAR is missing, rather than the kit being broke lol. I was thinking maybe that fork shaped piece on the right somehow screws to a bracket in the dash, and also to the back of the "Storage Pocket"..

any help/tips/pics are appreciated, thanks!

the back piece angle bracket usually connects to the rear of the pocket and supports it from the underside, the piece with the two little holes on either side is for an old school twin **** radio, the other two plastic pieces would help secure it in place I believe, as far as the clips go you may be able to make your current one work (I have the same problem with my car....) just take a little screwdriver and try to wedge it inbetween the current mount kit and the dash bezle and pry the dash piece out a bit and that will push in the mount piece a tad more so that may help it "seat" properly

I tried prying a little, and kept looking.. the little clip pieces off the bottom of the storage pocket just won't seem to latch around anything though I can just take the whole thing out easily, and it looks bad too
