Stereo access how-to

Here are some very simple steps on how to get to your stereo for whatever reason you want. I was connecting a high level to low level converter to add an amplifier to power my aura bass shakers mounted in the seats.

Here is the too that I used to remove the center panel. I got it at Pep boys for less than 10 dollars.

I used the tool to pry the console off, there are clips in each corner that are held in place by tension, don't worry, they won't break, just work your way around one corner at a time.

Once you have them loose, the console should just pull away, there is ample slack on all the cables to pull it to the side without disconnecting anything. If you wanted to disconnect them, they are all quick plug'n'play connectors so feel free. Just make sure you reconnect them all when you are done. The stereo is easily removed by taking out the 4 bolts that hold it in (I think they were 9/32 or something odd like that, a regular tool set should have the right socket or nut driver.) There are two plugs on the radio, and now you can do whatever you like, there is tons of room inside to install just about anything you want.

Great pix! I like that tool. Does the little panel under that main come off in the same fashion?

As a matter of fact yes, I put a rocker switch for my amp there, but I have seen others put LEDs there to light up that little tray and drink holders. It pops off, but a little stiffer, I recommend taking the main console cover off first and then taking the little one off. If you drill holes, make sure you test fit first to make sure the installed item has clearance behind it, I had to drill an additional hole through the bracket, luckily not visible, but poor planning on my part (I am an engineer, so its kind of embarassing to make a mistake like that)
