The MUD Td5 Double DIN Console replaces the factory-fit 2002-2007 Td5 Defender radio fascia with our own exclusive one-piece design that allows you to easily upgrade the original single DIN radio set-up to a Double DIN head unit.The original Land Rover radio fascia fitted to 2002-2006 Td5 Defenders is a fragile unit prone to breakage thanks to a flimsy and poorly designed two-piece assembly that can barely support the weight of the single DIN head unit. Typically, the separate centre panel containing the head unit/radio will break loose from the main console.The MUD Td5 Double DIN Console is a simple DIY upgrade that uses the factory fixings and requires no cutting, drilling or modifications to be made to your dashboard. Simply remove your old console, replace with the MUD Double DIN Console and enjoy the benefits and features of the larger screens found on modern Double DIN head units such as Apple CarPlay & Android Auto screen mirroring as featured on our JVC KW-M565DBT and the new JVC KW-M785DBW with wireless Apple CarPlay & Android auto.The MUD Td5 Double DIN Console was engineered using CAD 3D scanning technology and uses an injection moulded manufacturing process for a factory fit appearance and a perfect fit every time.Another design detail we’ve incorporated is to increase the diameter of the recess that houses the standard cigar lighter style 12v socket. This increase in the recess diameter has been made to accommodate the popular Blue Sea marine grade power sockets. Blue Sea sockets have a slightly larger external diameter than the factory 12v socket. By increasing the diameter of this recess, this allows the Blue Sea socket housing to sit flush within the console fascia and present a much neater appearance to your power socket upgrade. Blue Sea sockets are available as a 12v socket or a USB socket as pictured below.The MUD Td5 Double DIN replacement console is equivalent to the Land Rover part numbers FWJ000110PMA (Black) & FWJ000110LQV (Brunel Silver), both of which are now obsolete and no longer available to buy from Land Rover Genuine Parts.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I paint my console?
Yes! We supply the console in a Matt black finish to match as closely as possible the original dash. You can paint the dash any colour you'd like, either Brunel silver to match the XS dashboard, or the same colour as the exterior of your Defender. We always recommend you have your parts professionally painted to get the best possible finish.
Will my X,Y,Z head-unit fit the MUD Td5 Console?
When creating the MUD Td5 Console we discovered that there are variations in the size of Double DIN Head units. Whilst single DIN is an industry standard, double DIN is a general term for head units which are 'roughly' double in size. We therefore made the hole slightly smaller than the majority of double DIN head units in order for our console to accommodate as many head units as possible. We advise you take note of the measurements below before purchasing to ensure the console will fit your head unit. The hole can be trimmed in order to fit slightly larger head units. The dimensions of the hole in the MUD Td5 Console are 108mm x 180mm.
Do you offer a Single DIN option of this product?
Yes we do. Click here.
Can I fit extra switches into the MUD TD5 Double DIN Console?
The MUD Td5 Double DIN Console has no space for extra switches beyond the factory offering. You can however use the MUD Carling DIN switch mount to create room for up to six extra Carling Technologies switches when fitted with a Single DIN head unit. We recommend mounting the Single DIN head unit in the lower position when fitted with the MUD Carling DIN switch mount. Click on the image below for more information on the MUD Carling DIN Switch Mount.Will the Td5 MUD Double DIN Console fit the pre-2002 Defender models?
No. The 2002-2007 dashboard differs from the pre-2002 model of Defender by using a one-piece dashboard tray/vent panel moulding that the radio console attaches to. Without this (now obsolete) dashboard moulding there is nothing in the earlier Defender to attach the MUD Td5 Double DIN Console to. The top row of switches in the 2002-onwards model uses a switch retainer housing (YUD000310PMA) that you need to transfer over to the new console from the old console. Without this switch retainer housing the switches have nothing to locate them. The switch retainer is available to buy from MUD UK, but start to add in the cost of the expensive Td5 factory switches and the cost of the conversion can easily get out of control!My original Td5 Console doesn’t have a radio fitted but instead has a large pocket where the radio would go. Can I remove this pocket and fit a Double DIN head unit into the space?
No. The hole in the factory console is not a Double DIN size.
What's in the box?
The MUD Td5 Defender Console comes complete with full colour instructions (see 'Resources' tab below). Note you will need to re-use the factory fixings and your existing switch retainer.
