Fitting roof mounted dvd player?

Hi All,

I have a roof mounted dvd player I'd like to fit but I don't see a way of doing it without damaging the headling... In my D3 I had I mounted in place of the rear map light unit..

Anyone got any tips/photos of one fitted? Cheers Paul

Have a look at my gallery - I had one fitted a couple of yeras ago. It's an absolute winner with the kids!!

Got a guy I know called Maximillion Pitts to do it.

Thanks Jonathan..

That's just what I was looking for Thumbs Up I was however thinking of fitting it behind the alarm sensor rather than in front..

Does it distract you at all when driving? Cheers Paul

Not really. There is some restriction to rear view with it down but you can still see through the rear view mirror. I think it's been a great addition to the car and money well spent. For some reason Max moved the alarm sensor - although he's an expert in the wiring looms for range rovers to seemed to know the best place. Apparently the unit is bonded to the roof!

Good luck with yours - if you are getting it for the kids they will love it. MY 2012 Range Rover Sport TDV6 Autobiography in Fujian White....Mmmmmmm

Fitted mine today... I've put it in the same place as you did Jonathan - just got to re-mount the alarm sensor tomorrow and I'm finished.

I'll post some photos when done Thumbs Up Cheers Paul

LR do an adaptor kit which integrates the sensors IIRC - removes that smoke alarm look Rolling Eyes

Does the alarm sensor have to be anywhere specific on can it be moved anywhere on the roof ? Cheers
