    The "RAH" Chrysler radio can play mp3s written to a CD.
    I bought an "rah" radio from a Pacifica thinking that it would fit in my
    2006 Grand Caravan.

    The connectors fit, but the front panel is shaped different so that it
    doesn't fit through the opening in the dash. Does anyone have an idea where
    I could get a different style front panel? The panel does come off, but
    can't be swapped with the existing radio because the buttons and openings
    are different.

    Hi foo...

    I'm deep into a radio muddle, too - though not similar problems as you.

    However, what I did learn as a result of mine is that Wallmart has a
    selection of adapters available. Think they were about 15 dollars
    canadian, large packages hanging near the car radios. Several versions
    were marked Dodge/Chrysler.

    Wonder if one of them might not help to solve your problem.

    Take care.

    Ken

    No, those adaptors are for putting standard DIN-sized stereos into
    Chrysler products, which from the factory have taller 1.5DIN units.

    an adapter would work well if the radio were *smaller* than the
    whole,sound like a little hacksaw action is in order :)
