    Does anybody know if radio from 2000 Saturn S-series will fit into my
    1999 Saturn SC-2?
    My radio got stolen (smashed window did cost me much more!), but I see
    lot's of 2000 and up radios on Ebay. It's fine if I need to rewire the
    harness, but first of all I want the radio to have the right size.
    I see a single-CD radio with pocket under it like in this Ebay auction:
    Will this one fit?

    Thanks all.

    What do YOU think?
    I think you have 5 days to find out.
    Actually, No. I dont think you can put a 2000 in a 99. I
    have a 95-99 style radio. It is incompatible apparently with
    everything. IE that model oem stereo component series.
    try checking the crutchfield website and seeing if you can find
    anything that will fit your car, and if so, see if the same thing will
    fit on a 2000.

    Do you know how different 2000 radio is from 1999? Is it wider, or
    higher, or deeper?
    When I bought my current Saturn (1999), it came with a Pioneer radio,
    that later got stolen. Pioneer did fit the width, but I think it was
    thinner than original Saturn Radio, and it was installed with the
    installation kit like this one:
    If 2000 radio is smaller than 1999, I'll give it a chance. However, if
    it is bigger, than there will be a trouble fitting it.

    When I looked in the website, several of the same units
    that fit the 1999 saturn also fit the 2000. I think if anything, the
    difference is the wiring connections.
    BTW - you can also get the wiring and dash fitting bezel for free from
    Crutchfield if you buy a dash unit from them.

    My concern is about the size, not wiring. I used to have a Saturn 92',
    and I still have the original radio from 92'. That radio does not fit
    into 99' car because the radio is physically wider. I don't know why
    would they do that!

    In 1995 the width changed. (The radio I got for my 95 will not fit my
    Apparently the wiring changed in 2000. An OEM 2000 radio might fit in
    your 1999 vehicle, but it wouldnt be fully compatible and the trim
    probably is different.
