Figured I would do a quick write-up on changing out the radios on the new 06's since i just changed mine out to today.

Step 1:

Pry off the radio surround. You can do this by sticking a flathead in between the radio and the radio surround((red arrows)radio MAY get scratched IF YOU ARE NOT CAREFUL.....SO BE CAREFUL, but better the radio your replacing then the dash if your not careful and something does get scratched). Once you have this loose DO NOT pull hard(there are 2 hidden screws). Pull out the shifter surround by gently pulling on it, don't forget that the cigarette lighter is attached to that surround.

Step 2:

Now you should see the two "hidden" screws(red arrows). Remove these two screws. Now the radio surround should ease right out.

Step 3:

Now you can see the six screws holding the radio in place. Remove these screws and the radio assembly will slide right out. Remove the connectors and antenna.

Installation is the reversal of these instructions.

I have received the pics & thank you. I found out that it's easier to pop out the shifter surround first w/ flathead & then pull out the shifter surround. Then go to your step 2. I'm able to pull out the radio surround half way, but the top part of it is still stucked to the dash. Do I just keep pulling the surround up until it pop off? Sorry for double posting this on another thread: http://www.clubwrx.net/forums/showthread.php?t=124406&highlight=remove+head

The harness you got for your head unit (hopefully you got one so you don't have to cut factory wiring!) will be the same color wires as on your aftermarket head unit. So you just match color for color.

Steps 1 and 2 are backward

Hey guys. kinda to address the issue of scratching stuff.

If you remove the shift trim then unscrew the screws securing the radio trim, you can remove the radio trim with no chance of damaging it. unless you are a big brute maybe.

hope this prevents anyone scratchin their trim

Maybe you should add in somewhere in the title that this is a TR. My car is an 06, with a 6 disk, so these wont work with mine. If you have any pics of this on a 6 disk, that would be great!:thumbup:
