P.*.

After that you'll need either a nutdriver or a philips. Either will work. 2 screws for the stereo.

I have two of the 92-93 cassette stereos with the 5-band EQ sitting on the shelf. One of them has a broken volume ****, the other is mint. I have heard of a few with the broken volume **** now, must be a common problem.

Although the 92-93 is the only one that is a direct fit, the 94-99 stereos will work (see my picture above, I did it...)

But you guys need to check out my Techinfo procedure. In short, the left side of the brackets are different. You will need to drill holes. You will have to add a bracket to the rear of the stereo. Take the one off the old stereo and saw the top piece off. And if I remember correctly the wiring harnesses that you have in your car will not fit into the 94-99 stereo without either filing down a few of the tabs or replacing the harness with a direct fit one (you can buy them at stores, UNLESS you have steering wheel controls, then you must go to the junkyard).

That said, the modifications I described are relatively easy. Let us know how you come out.

fuddyduddy121, Thanks for replying. I think I will do as wilwren suggested by pulling out my unit and comparing it to the 99GA unit I saw last week. I looked at my RPO code and it says a UM6. There were a number of other Delco radios that I didn't look at. Maybe I will get lucky.

fuddyduddy121, Here are some pics of the unit I took out this afternoon. I want to take it with me when I compare it with the 99 GA unit. Mine does have the bracket for the bottom mount. I did notice the peg on the left side that you were talking about.

Don, It appears that all I have to do is drill a hole in the left mounting bracket of the GA unit so it can rest on the peg. I will find out in the next day or two.

I also had to drill a hole into the dashboard to reposition a screw on the left side.

Compare the wiring plugs on the back - You may see that yours has more of those L-shaped tabs.

fuddyduddy121, Took my unit and compared it to the 99GA this morning. I see what you mean by having to saw off the top of the bracket on the 99. He let me take it to my car so I could check it out. The Theft Loc must of been disabled because the radio played and the CD player worked. I got two of the connectors to plug in but one of them wouldn't. the one that didn't plug in probably provides power to the rear speakers because I could only hear the two front speakers. I will stay with my stock unit for now but I am still searching for a CD player. Thanks for your help.
