hello everyone im new to cars and that got given the family old vs commodore. First thing i did was put a new head unit in but have had heaps of troubles along the way but this one im stuck. I have 3 rca cables running from the back of the hu but they are too long and wont fit. I have loooked at 90 degree angles but there is a heat sink thing on the back of it that stops me from fitting them any ideas on what to do? I got the rca from jaycar

It is a tight fit back there. I managed to run 4 rca's behind a DVD deck in my statesman. can't remember how we managed it but its doable.

i have 6 rca's running behind mine, very tight.

only thing i can suggest is remove the full center surround which removes the sides so you can see and move wires as your sliding it back into position

lol, years ago when DVD players were first making themselves popular, I had to take to a brand new VS with a hot air gun on the heater box behind it...

Lol there has been a few items that have had to be persuasively massaged to fit

Usual response when one of my boys tries to tell me something won't fit.
