Default center stack removal

Its the mac,

I'm going to be getting an alpine headunit and I prefer to do the install myself. How do I go about getting the trim panel off the center stack. I've looked at some pix. and it seems the **** will have to come off the shifter also. I know about the install kit and having to have one. Does the panel just pop out like most or what??

Need help

You don't need to take off the shift ****. Just turn the key and put the shifter in 1. Gives plenty of room. Don't forget the parking brake. The trim panel does pop off. You just gotta tug to see where the thing is attached, then pry with a long screwdriver. Remember the trim panel is one piece to the othe side of the steering wheel.

Default cetner stack removal

Thanks for the info.

I just went to carstereo help.com and looked up my year for removal. It says something about "dock and lock" how will that affect the new headunit can I just by a new wiring harness??



Thanks again
Mac

there are 2 pins upbove your steering wheel & gauges. take a small phillips screw driver or something with a point tip and push them up -->http://www.angelfire.com/fl5/itsnitr...album?i=11&*=1


than once you get the panel off and you can see the raido has four clips

inorder for you to keep all of ur things working and to install an aftermaket radio you will need this

Oh, I just noticed you have an 02. I don't actually know how to get that off.
