Barry, once you have the dash cover off you push in plastic tabs on each
side of the radio and it slides right out. Unplug it and your done, so
simple. If you put in a regular size replacement radio all you need is a
instillation kit and a wiring adapter. Walmart sells both and they make
instillation a breeze.
www.bought4less.com is the place to buy that new stereo
You unsnapped the dash bezel trim?
there are clips on either side of the radio.
press them down and jiggle the radio loose.
now buy that new stereo at www.bought4less.com and the new stereo will be
just as easy to install. Plug in and snap it in.
: I want to install a better radio. Once I remove the dashboard cover
: what will I need and how do I remove the original radio ?
: I have a 1995 CK extended cab 4x4.
: thanks for any help.
boy isn't this a bit of bull!!! there are only a handful of 1.5DIN radios
out there, and they're not popular...the vast majority of aftermarket head
units are single din units, so they require a dash kit to make them fit in
the dash of that truck (which is 1.5DIN)
The same goes for the wiring...you /can/ get prewired harnesses for specific
radios and vehicles (I sell them), but in the vast majority of cases, the
user will be soldering the radios' harness to an aftermarket harness.
In lots of cases, pro shops will not use harnesses unless instructed to by
the owner (and pays for the parts). we cut and solder the deck harness to
the vehciles harness...doesn't allow for stock replacement after, but its
also $20 cheaper!!
please don't tell people that you "just slide the new one in and...." that
is so far from the truth in 99% of cases, its not even funny....
