How to remove the stereo step by step:

Start by removing the VOLUME KNOB off the left hand side of the stereo.
This should reveal a flat blade screw which you need to turn to release some catches holding the stereo in place.
You need to turn the screw and pull with your fingers on the stereo at the same time to get the lower half out.

NOTE: This screw doesn’t come all the way out and should only turn 90 degrees each way.



Once the lower half of the stereo is out, there are 2 allen key screws holding the top half in place on each side of the top stereo.



Remove radio and disconnect aerial and ISO wiring plugs from back.
