I have just installed a new CD player, but it just wont sit flush with the dash.

It's sitting pround about 1/4 inch.

I have been on about an hour, trying to re-route cables etc. There is a black metal bracket inside the dash, which may be stopping it going fully home. Before I take a mallet to it, has anyone experienced similar, and how do you get around it?

Yes.

Exactly the same problem. Took the spindle off the back of the stereo but still a couple of mm out. I had an in dash dvd player that had a ton of cables. Took forever to fit...

Hours of knuckle skinning fun for you ahead!

I found that you can take the grey vent cover out in the centre console then take the black vent out, you can then lie on your back from the passenger footwell and look right up to the back of the stereo, you can then make sure all the wires are routed out of the way.
