Need Input On Swapping Factory Radio
I just picked up a factory 6-cd changer/tape deck. RAK. Any tips/advice on pulling the bezel and swapping radios?

I had tutorial online on how to remove everything, but my old site got hacked. I'll try to remember to get it back online when I get home from work today, and reply here to let you know the link.

There's a tool set I used that consisted of several plastic wedged pieces. Worked great and prevented any scratching of the dash pieces. That too I'll have to remind myself what it's called. lol

That would be awesome, thanks.

Looks like I can't keep this promise! I'll be busy with other work that's come up for the next while. Sorry for the tease. Hopefully Gramps' links can help you out.

No problem, I might try and tackle it tonight if it shows up today.

The mailman is my friend. :)

It's here.

I hope this isn't "too little too late", but I have that tutorial back online.

Sorry I couldn't get to it sooner! If you've already installed your new deck, I hope all went well with it. :)

Nope, this is great. Thanks!

AWESOME write-up bro. I just did the swap. 15 minutes and done. Thanks.

No problem. Glad my efforts helped out someone. :)
