Question about 2005 Subaru Forester
I need to get to the back of the Kenwood/Subaru badged unit to plug in a changer lead/ Ipod conversion, how do I get the head unit out? or is it easier to get at it from the footwells by removing some trim?
Hello, I will share a little tech tip with you... These instructions tell you to disconnect the HVAC (Heating,Ventalation,Air Conditioning) cables, they are a pain. All I do is, when you get to the point where you WOULD disconnect them, just take out the screws on either side of the HVAC control head and just bend the brackets out enough to remove the stereo, and when your going back together with it, just put one of the screws in one of the holes for the HVAC control head and put the screw driver on the screw and push the bracket with the screw driver to line up the holes and screw it in. Do the same with the other side and it's good as new. You really don't have to bend them out hardly at all. I hope this info helps...
Install in the reverse order of removal.
