Default Stock Radio Fit

Would a radio out of a 00-04 Bonneville/Aztek/Grand Am physically fit in a 95 Bonneville. I know the wiring harness may differ but I was mainly thinking of the fit.

Thanks.

This style:

The radio seems to be 2 din, I think you can put it in but you will have to cut the trim piece and the plastic in the dash.

You would be better off with a 7 band cd than that one. Wouldn't have to go butchering up the dash

CD w/ 7 band EQ

Or this one

CD w/ 7 band EQ

Stock and looks better than the one you're looking at

There'* the easy way and the creative way.

Easy is slip in like Dbeast and others mention.

Creative is putting in a double din.... it'll take cutting and fabbing.. been done before.

I've got one of the stock CD Players with 7 band EQ. I just thought it would be cool to get one of the newer monsoon players that have the extra info song playing stuff and anything else they put in the newer units.

I'd prefer not to butcher my dash. Now if I had a spare dash trim piece I might be more inclined to experiment.
