    09 aftermarket stereo install

    I am thinking about replacing the stock head unit in my WRX. Is the stereo hard to get out? Are there any tutorials showing how to do this?

    Thanks in advance

    just pop off the plastic piece surrounding the HU and AC vents, and you will see its quite simple. im pretty sure its just a few screws and some wires that need to be unplugged. you will probably need a dashkit and wiring harness also (you can get them for really cheap at crutchfield).

    If you can get your fingernails under the edge, just do it that way. If not, try using the plastic end of a metal nail file, that's what did it for me.

    Basically, anything thin and SOFTER than the plastic of the trim so you don't scratch it.

    yea i just used my hands, try starting on one of the corners, it does take a good bit of force but if it looks like somethings about to break, then stop cuz it probably is.
