I am tryin to remove the factory radio from a 2000 Nissan Altima and install an aftermarket radio. but i cant seem to figure out a way to get the trim panel around the radio and HVAC module out. And i can...


  • disconnect the negative battery cable from the Altima's battery.

    Pry up the trim panel surrounding the gear stick. The trip panel is held in place by plastic clips that will disengage when the panel is pried up. Use a flat-head screwdriver to pry up the panel. The panel doesn't need to be completely removed, just pried up enough to reveal two Phillips screws along the bottom of the radio trim panel.

  • 3

    Remove the two Phillips screws along the bottom edge of the radio trim panel, just above the gear stick. Remove the two Phillips screws from above the radio. Remove the ashtray.

  • 4

    Pry the radio trim panel loose with your fingers or a flat-head screwdriver and remove it.

  • 5

    Remove the four Phillips screws holding the radio in place. Set the screws aside for use later. Slide the radio forward and disconnect the wires from the back of the device.

  • 6

    Slide the cage included with your new stereo into your dash adapter. Slide the stereo into the cage and dash adapter.

  • 7

    Connect the wires from the dash to the back of your new stereo. All stereos have slightly different connections methods, so refer to the owner's manual accompanying your new stereo for the proper connection procedure.

  • 8

    Slide the stereo and dash adapter into the dashboard. Use the previously removed Phillips screws to mount the stereo in place. Replace the radio trim panel and gear stick trim panel. Reconnect your battery.

  • If you are putting a aftermarket stero make sure you buy a stero harness that plugs into the cars harness, on the back side of the harness you just installed will have open wires to conet to your new stero. If you cut the wires from your car to try to splice it to the new raido it can cause problems with the electrical system includeing making the transmission shift or act funny. you can pick the harness at wall-mart, car auido, best buy, or any car auido place.

    You need to get the code from the dealer to unlock the stereo. right now it 'thinks' it has been stolen (happens when the power supply is removed from the stereo).

    I need help with a wiring layout for a stereo.


    Forget it...go to a car stereo installation shop and buy a wiring harness for your car ($20-40) and you're done!
    Good Luck
    P.S. might as well buy a dash kit ($30) to make installing the radio simpler as well...if you DON'T have a car stereo shop nearby, order parts from crutchfield.com

    Could someone please give me a simple (I'm auto mechanically challenged) step by step instruction on how to install a new radio in my Ford Windstar. It is a 1996 and the stero I am putting in is a Naxa NX...


    Typaclly if you purchased the faceplate install kit, and harness kit, the install will be very easy. You will also get a set of instructions for each kit.
    The first hurtle you will have to leap will be removing the old radio, this requires a set of removal tools that fit into the four holes in the face plate of the stock radio. This set may include 2 to 4 tools to put into the holes to unlock the unit, once you have it out, install your harness kit, faceplate and stereo.

    Hope this is of some help.

    Chanmge the factory stero


    There is  a strip of wood trim that needs to be removed so that you can get to the screws that attach the black dashboard plastic to the back of the dashboard.  You will need a hex head screwdriver.  There are also screws inside the air vents.  Once you have removed all the screws the black dash panel will slip off easily.  If it does not slip off easy, then you missed a screw.  Now that your radio is now exposed, use a socket wrench to undo the three mounting bolts, they are on the face of the radio.  Then after you have that out, install a radio mounting plate that you will have to buy extra with your aftermarket stereo.  Ten slip in your new radio and re-attach all of the bits you took off in reverse order.
