So I bought a new drive - 5400 rpm 40 GB Seagate. Then I figured with the temperature around in the 20s and 30s - way below the disk specs - I better wait (I presume the trunc is not really heated). Eventually I remembered yesterday, and now I have it working. I have the satelite display in the ash-tray (perfect fit) and it is completely hidden when you close the door.
Hi, Do you have any pictures of the satellite display mounted in the ashtray? I have the Dension unit and satellite but have not installed it yet. It looks like if I take the ashtray out the display will fit down there, but wanted to find a way to mount it so it did not move around, and was at the best angle. Also, any tipis running the remote display would help (for a car without the rear fold-down seats).
