How do you get the dash panel off to remove the radio... i found a set of screws by the cluster and a set in the ashtray but tat doesnt seem to be enough to hold this all in place...... i am afraid of breaking it......
Yup, what he said dan,...
Remarkably, There are only 4 screws
Pull from the lower right first (ashtray area) then make your way to the upper left, by the vent.

Oh yeah, becareful when you take the tweater cover off. We have not yet been successful in taking it off without breaking it.
And we were <b>REAL</b> careful!
Just some warning,...

Yeah, be careful. Full stereo installs SUCK on this car. I've had to do it twice now and have a third coming next weekend. Running the wires in the stock looms suck. You have to take the WHOLE damn back of the car apart to get the rear speakers in. Then you have to take the whole damn sides off to run the wires. Then you have to squeeze you hand in a very little space to take off the cover to run the wires through the firewall in the stock location. It took me 10 hours to do the first install in my own car. Then it took me 6 hours with her helping me the second time for her car. Of course I broke some clips on both installs on the rear deck and side panels No biggy though since it was only a couple.
Crutchfield has a Panasonic in dash DVD/CD player for only $600. I'm pissed. I just bought all new stuff a month ago for my new GLS and would have definatley paid the extra $200 for that deck over my Kenwood Exceleron CD player.
you think you got it bad i have already done it your hardest problem well be getting that four guage in the car and you cant use the hole behind the dash (to small) anyways i have a pioneer head unit, pionner in dash eq right below my head unit (looks sweet) pioneers in the door and in the back window, legacy 450x4 running the speakers,mounted on the back of the seat, with a rf bd1000.1 running 2 jl12w3d4 in the trunk, oh you will need a cap altnator is not strong enough , i have two 1 fareds,and xm radio to , its a wiring nightmare but it will be all worth it . if you have any questions email me @ [email protected]
E-GLSRalph... A "farad" is a measurement of the capacitance level of a capacitor. A "1-farad capacitor" is said to be for an audio system up to 1000 watts. A capacitor delivers quick energy to the DC -to- DC converter section of your audio amplifier. Your amp need this energy to accurately reproduce music. It also lessens/smooths out the current pull from your battery. Not all systems need one, but my old system performed a lot better with one. Can't hurt ya know?
Got it! Thanks man. I've heard of "lightning caps", I believe these are the type things you're talking about, correct? They store the energy for stereo amp and big system output- I'm learnin' <img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>
