Default Installing aftermarket stereo in '01 S40?

Also posted in the S40 sub-forum but I'm just looking for an answer.

Hi everyone, I just joined so I could figure this out, I am trying to install an aftermarket single DIN stereo in my girlfriend's S40. It previously had the factory double din tape/cd/radio setup. I have the wiring harness, antenna adapter, and a single DIN pocket installed correctly, but I cannot for the life of me find a way to install the actual stereo. I talked to a guy at best buy and he said to re-use the factory brackets, but the factory stereo only had the little spring loaded pull tabs and the black plastic guide rails and neither will fit an aftermarket radio. All I can find online is universal pocket kits and nothing to actually mount the stereo. Any thoughts here, personal experience or otherwise i'd really appreciate it. Thanks!
