    Some questions about stereo install

    So i just got my 2004 STi 2 days ago. It didn't have a stereo in it at all, in fact it never came with one. I used to install car audio systems at bestbuy years ago, so im not new to stereo installs.

    First question is: what does the factory antenna plug look like? There where a few open plugs in there when i put the head unit in. Does anyone have any pics of what it looks like or links to an adapter for this?

    Second, what do the factory speaker plugs look like? I could just run new wire to all the speakers, but i would rather use the factory wiring, simply cause its easier. Again,pics and or links for an adapter here would be much appreciated.

    Third, I saw the sticky on stereo installs and it mentioned to get the door panel off i would need to pry off the door handle. There has to be a better way or some speacial tool to do it cause i scrached the hell outa my handle, and nearly broke it.

    thanks again

    You don't need to pry the door handle off. You just need to pry the piece off that surounds the door handle.
