I'm not really sure what you're asking, can't you put it where the existing stereo goes or do you need to find somewhere else to put it?

To be more precise, the unit I am fitting has a screen that pops up when switched on. so the unit has to protude out much further than a syandard radio !!
What I am trying to fing is a housing to support this, my other option is to make one myself

Are you sure it will fit? The space behind the radio front is very limited due to the presence of the interior heater equipment. The stock radio has been tilted to quite an angle downwards to avoid bumping into that. The standard after-service facia panel fittings for the 406 (see e.g. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/250827106975? ... rmvSB=true, http://fr.aliexpress.com/item/Free-Ship ... .21.SNBMG3) is shaped such that the radio also tilts downwards.
