The radio is really easy and would be pretty difficult to screw up. I've got to head off to work for a little while this afternoon (my boss said something about actually working for my paycheque ) but I'll post some information later today so you know exactly what you're looking for.

To get the radio out, you need to remove the trim panel that surrounds it, and the intrument cluster. So as not to re-invent the wheel, below is a link to a most excellent post by Hawkjet that shows the removal of the trim piece. Look at pictures 1 - 7 specifically.

http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=84354

Once the trim is off, the radio is very easy to remove. There are four tabs (two on each side of the radio). Simply press all four inwards to unlock them and the radio will slide right out. Reinstalling is equally easy by sliding the radio in until all four clips snap into place.

With the radio out, look at the large connector in the back of the radio bay. This is a 32 cavity Dock-N-Lock connector (16 top, 16 bottom). Row 'B' is across the top and row 'A' is on the underside. Pin 1 is to the very right, while pin 16 is closest to the steering wheel.

You are looking to see if there are gold-plated terminals in positions A9, A10 and A11. Below is a picture of the connector, similar to what you should see. You'll notice that position A5 on my connector doesn't have a terminal. This will give you reference to what a vacant cavity looks like. Let me know what you find

a few things: First of all, that was amazingly simple! from the time I started until the time I finished, really only took me about 20 mins! and that was because I was going exceedingly slow to be sure I did not mark up any of the surfaces!

secondly, pics A9, A10,+ A11 are missing, along with A5 :(

I'm assuming this is not a good sign!

Also, since I now know how to remove this large piece of dash/trim, anyone know the part number to get a new one? My car came with a large distortion just to the right of the radio that is esthetically damaging!

Thanks again for the quick responses and all the help!

As I mentioned before, those terminals missing is not the end of the world. It'* more important to know ahead of time to formulate the best attack plan.

I would start by checking out the other components (changer, bracket, magazine, trim panel, etc).

As for the trim, there should be an 8 digit part number somewhere on the part. If not, you may want to check with your dealer. Apparently there have been some (particularly GXP) that seemed to be a different shade. The dealer can look up a specific part for your car based on the VIN number.
