Replacing 2018 S radio?

Sat Aug 11, 2018 5:40 pm

I've seen the guide for the 13-17 Leaf, and the post regarding the 2018 SL, but I'm trying to figure out how to replace the radio in my 2018 S.

I looks like I can use the mounting bracket for a Versa Note https://www.amazon.com/Metra-95-7621-Installation-2014-Nissan/dp/B00OX57CGS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1534030852&sr=8-1&keywords=metra+95-7621 and it *looks* like the steering controls are the same as the 2018 Rogue.

I've got a quote from an AV installer of ~$500 (w/o the head unit) but I'm interested in trying it myself.

Does anyone know:
* does the Axxess ASWC-1 work in my car?
* another adapters needed for the steering wheel controls
* anything needed for the dash display (show's what's playing via BT)
* is there a specific wiring harness that would work?

Thanks for any and all assistance.

I've not looked at an S, but the radio comes out pretty easily. I would guess that it's a standard Nissan harness, with your biggest hurdle going to be the dash. I would expect an ASWC would work, though you'll be programming it on your own, at least at first. I would look into a PAC or iDatalink piece (I just have always seem to have issues with Metra products) for steering wheel controls. If iDatalink is working on a solution, they would be the best option for integrating into the OEM cluster, but then you're looking into one of the RR pieces. I've done a few iDatalink pieces lately and they seem to be on the ball in terms of programming/integration.

You'll have to pull the radio to figure out what harness you need, then after that it's gonna be some work to make all of the controls to work.
