ok it shoudl be the same as ont he 00/01 buicks we do.. the white plastic clip that the end plugs in to actully needs to be broken out (CAREFULLY) so that the whole peice can sit back in the dash farther

how far should it be able to go back after the plastic piece comes out and does it come out pretty easy and cleanly

in refernce to your other post.. it SHOULD be able to back up in there far enough to flush it.. ALSO check your actull dash kit where the metal cage goes in.. if you pop that cage out there might be a little plastic peice on the inside lip of the actual dash kit that you can remove... its a spacer designed to push your radio out a litle more.. that white peice might come ou t kinda hard but there should be clips either at the top or bottom that you can break with outworrying too much about damaging anything... there IS a white plastic peice that surrounds where your antenna connection is, right? so you dont go breakin somethin weird

There is no white plastic behind the radio on the Bonneville. You'll need to cut out the back wall that houses the lock and dock/ant connections. After you do that, you can cram small animals back there.... or at least I've been able to tuck away most of my stereo add ons.

yup, all one piece in the dash, a dremel or something of sorts works well to cut out the back wall in the radio cavity
