Head Unit Relocation

This is a 2005 Explorer.

Got a carputer and am planning to install my screen in the stock double-din bezel. I want to keep my 1-din Alpine head unit as the main controller so I need to move it.

I am looking at the spot just above the catch-all tray on the center console (Labeled "Head" in the photo below).

I need help identifying #1 and #2 in the photo. At least one of these are going to have to be moved in order in fit my HU.

I realize I won't have rear heat/air anymore.

I think #1 might be an airbag control.

#2 is a plastic box... Not sure it's exact function.



Any help is much appreciated!

Re: Head Unit Relocation

An easy way to identify the part is to pull the part # off of the unit. Sometimes you can solve this with a search on the internet or take the number to your Ford Dealer for identification. Most likely you will be able to move it- providing that it has a good ground if this is required.

I can't identify #2 by the picture. Sorry.
