  • The radio/vent trim bezel is held in place with 4 spring clips. With a wide flat tool (a 3" plastic spackle tool works great), gently pry on each vertical side and carefully pull the bezel out a little at a time until it is free. The red areas in the center picture are the felt-lined receptacles that the bezel spring clips fit in to, which shows the general area of where to pry when removing the bezel.

  • The radio is secured with four phillips screws, one in each corner.

  • Slide the radio straight out and remove two wire harnesses and antenna connector on the back.

  • Located under the rear passenger-side seat, removal of the Infinity amplifier is pretty much self-explanatory. Four nuts to remove, and two wire harnesses to unplug. The photo at far right shows the simple circuit board of the Amp, the only component inside the unit.

  • With a wide flat tool (3" plastic putty knife or similar, as shown in upper left photo), gently pry the dash trim panel upwards starting at either end. You can then get your fingers under the lip and lift it up, working your way to the opposite end. The trim is held in place by four spring clips. There are no parts or wires attached to the trim cover.

  • The tweeters are held in place by 2 phillips screws. You'll need a very short or angled screwdriver to remove them.
