Different dash.

Post by flat out 90 » Tue May 04, 2021 6:21 am

So I have a 2005 caddy. What are my options dash wise. When I had a company van a few years ago i really liked that and that was a mk4 caddy. What are my options and pictures would help.

I do believe the MK4 caddy will fit but it’s really hard work and not straight forward. I’ve just fitted the Touran dash which is a straight fit and easy to do. You also gain a glovebox as opposed to the cheap plastic one you can buy which always breaks.

I do like that style to be fair. What clocks did you use. And what age did the dash come from. I’m still lurking in the caddy front

The dash came from a 2009 although the chrome
Vents came from a MK2 which was 2013 I think.
The cluster is a Touran premium colour one.

Added the top dash compartment today because when using the Mk2 vent housing the Mk1 compartment doesn’t fit.

This looks wicked cabbs, is this a straight forward job? I don’t like the idea of playing around with the airbags ect. Would love to do this as a future project! Also I’m not sure how to tag people so not sure if you’ll see this lol 😂

Easy mate. There not much to a caddy dash. There’s a video on You tube too by Dan Chambers. Go
Watch it mate. As long as you get everything you need you’ll be fine including brackets and the vent ducts at the back. It’s cost me just over £100 for everything mate. Remove your earth on the battery before disconnecting the airbag and it won’t give you an error light.
