I have an alpine double din stereo I am replacing. I have seen all kinds of threads covering the removal of the stock stereo units, and I have done that and it is pretty simple. I have also seen all kinds of posts that start with "How do I remove my dash?" and I have yet to see just how to do that in the area surrounding the stereo. The comments that follow often say, "You don't have to take the dash apart to do that..."
The only reference to the removal of an aftermarket double din stereo I have seen basically said yank on it. Well, here is what I have. The trim ring came off really easily, I just don't know what to do next.
I realize that the removal will depend more on the install kit used before than the unit itself.
How do I remove this thing?
If I need to break parts, I am okay with that, I just do not want to do any real damage to what is left, plus I would like to give the radio to my daughter if I can.
If you could tell me exactly what to break, cut, bend, clip, spread, pry, tug, pull, jiggle and or dremel to remove this thing I would appreciate it very much.
Also If someone would like to describe how to remove the dash around this area I would not mind that either. Please give me details.
Thanks a Ton!
