I have tried to pull the bezzel around the shifter off with my fingers, yet it wont unsnap. The only thing i could find that is remotley close to instructions for removing the bezel is from a mounting kit site (http://www.metraonline.com/_assets/manuals/INST99-6507.pdf) these instructions indicate that it just snaps out, if it does they sure use good snaps. :shock:
hey guys. I'm new here but my girlfriend does have a compass. I know this thread is a little old but if u want to know how to get the bezel etc off then i'll try to help. i installed an alpine double din for her and all the bells and whistles. This is all from memory but im gonna try. For automatic trannys you just need to pull really hard on the shift knob and it will come off. then you want to grab the inside of the shifter track and pull up. it will come off. I believe after that the next little trim where you pull the last piece up either has visible bolts or it just pulls up like the prior. after that we move to the main radio bezel frame. i think there are bolts on the bottom piece of it. get those out and then remove the flat piece above the whole radio hvac column that is flat. it's right above the vents. this piece hides more bolts you need to remove to get the bezel off. ounce you get that off the whole bezel unclips out with a little force but dont forget you have all the connections to the hvac controls etc. behind there.
do you still have the factory radio unit and if not does anyone know the factory measuments of the radio? Im trying to find a doubled in dvd player but everywhere i look they say this will not fit your vehicle
Going through the same thing. I bought an HD radio car connect kit that allows any radio to get the HD signal. I for the life of me can't get the panel around the radio to come off. Just to be clear. I need to pull the shifter knob off. Remove the shifter track and the casing and that gives me access to the bottom screws of the radio panel correct?
Has anyone removed the stock non BA radio? I need to now if it has RCA inputs or not.
