Mattias,

You need:

Metra Model: 95-2009 double din dash kit

This is the correct double DIN kit for the Fleetwood, and a bunch of other cars...

Metra 70-2001 Radio Wiring Harness for GM 94-04

Wiring kit for aftermarket radio TO factory radio connector plug. You will wire as the guide with the kit AND your radio's wiring dictates. I STRONGLY suggest you get the Posi-Loc connectors I have spoken of before, eliminating soldering and tape. Your choice of abuse however.

Look up prices on Amazon US and here is the Metra 2014 Catalog link: http://metraonline.com/files/catalog...R_COMPLETE.pdf

For my car I had to make my own brackets and wiring harness which isn't as much work as it sounds like.

The brackets are just rectangular pieces of metal bent back with some holes drilled in, just be sure to measure correctly.

The harness is pretty easy, just clip the pigtail off of the back of the factory radio and solder the wires to your after market radios harness. The hardest part will be to find the diagram to get the wires right, I have a the factory service manual but I'm sure it's also available online somewhere.

I think there was one wire that doesn't need to connect to anything, just tape it off.

If I can find my pictures when I get home I'll post them.

Amazon seems to have all I need incl the posi-loc. I have never seen them over here. Now the hunt to the stereo starts...
