#1: 2000-2002 SL2 Stereo install

Posted on 2006-07-21 17:53:29 by johndpeterson

I searched and I searched and found no useful tips on how to do this,
so I just decided to do it and hope for the best. Here is what I did
(and the stereo works and no loose bits hanging out).

What you will need:
1. a well lit area or a friend with a bright flashlight
2. Mini socket set (or full size with the mini adapter). Specific
sockets needed: 6.5mm, 7.5mm (I think - somewhere between 6 and 7.5mm -
two different sizes).
3. new single DIN radio with fit kit of your choice and adapter

How to:
PULL FUSES first. These are located behind a door that is on the
passenger side of the console - see user manual for location if you
can't find it. Pull any and all fuses for radio and clock. Wait til
clock turns off to begin taking off the dash.

Open Driver's door. In the side of the dash that you can see two
circular holes about an inch across each. In each of these holes is a
7.5mm socket style screw. Remove. Pop off the section that these two
screws hold on (there is a visible split in the dash immediately to the
left of the gas gauge).

Remove all the screws that are under the steering column. There are
two that are sunken in tubelike things that hold the top cover of the
column on. One is on the righthand side and the other is only
reachable when you fold the height lever down. Release the pressure
clips on the top piece by pulling vertically up. All screws on this
housing are smaller, 6.5mm headed screws.

All that remains is to pull at the dash until all the pressure
fasteners release.

Unscrew the existing radio, unplug it, and plug in your new radio.
replace dash. replace fuses. done.

Thanx johnpeter,

I reciently got an ipod and was wondering about changing my stereo so I
could plug it in directly for best sound, but owing to the rash of B&amp;Es
downstairs, I'll have to leave that for some time in a better future.

Something I found out about by accident.
If you go to the Crutchfield site and register your car &quot;What fits my car&quot;
and buy an air filter, you get the full stereo replacement instructions for
free...or at least I did.
BTW they did not have K&amp;N filters in any auto parts store in my area....
