How to remove the stereo step by step:
Prise off the silver trim above the stereo. This is on pressure clips and also remove the air vents which just pop out.
We found it easier if you work left to right.
You can now gain access to 2 Philips screws. Undo these.
You may need to use the trim tool to prise the heater controls and silver trim at the bottom forward. Once this section of the console is removed you will see the actual stereo behind it. (Notice how the volume knob pokes through the trim!)
It requires 2 Philips screws to remove the stereo.
Remove radio and disconnect aerial and ISO wiring plugs from back.
