I just bought a JVC 12-Disc changer and it required that I have to get behind the radio(of course). How do I get off the panel that surrouns the stereo, heat, etc. I have a 1994 SSEI. It looks like it will pull off but I dont want to break anything.

OK you have 4 clips in the middle were the air controls and the radio are.Just wigel and pull at the same.Also tilt your steering wheel down.It goes all the way across.Just be careful with it.GOOD LUCK.

if you just need a motorola male and female for a RF modulator....look for the large black antenna wire going to the radio, follow it under the glove box, and there should be a connection there. This saves you from buying all the GM delco adapters, and from removing your radio, just pull the power from the fuse panel, and your set.

I drilled a 1/2" hole in the plastic where the wiring harness goes through the firewall on the passenger side.

Not the best place, but i dont like drilling metal, when i cant see behind.

I threw together a page a while back on putting a sub in my 92 bonneville. It'* got a pic of where the clips are on the trim piece. Check it out at

That'* an excellent writeup. I basically did the same thing on my 1992 SE, except I ran the power wire through the passenger side door.

How powerful is that amp? I havea Perfect 12 running off a bridged Punch 250a2. There'* some pictures of my setup here.

i just went through one of the big rubber grommets on the driver side, worked fine for me. one thing you should NEVER do is run it through your door.
i.e. the wire moves just a little bit from where you put it, gets caught in the hinge, hinge breaks the plastic, cuts the wire, car on fire. very bad thing!!!
