You need a wiring kit and a faceplate kit. If those can be had your in the clear as far as it WILL fit. When pulling out the radio pay attention to the mounts and wiring pigtails(bundle) including the plugs. If you can find matching plugs and decent mounting hardware and face plate your good to go. If the body of the Bose is bigger than space it has to mount into your in trouble. If you must cut the dash that is a whole other ballgame. Hope that helps..
You need a tool like this. Insert the keys in the holes on the right and left sides of the radio. I believe you have to pull outward on them slightly and the radio will slide right out. You can also try with a cut up wire hanger that's bent in a u-shape. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.
i [iece of Plexiglas, use a piece of card board to measure out the area and cut it to size. install and mare the area the radio will fit in. cut that out. now you have a template in your hands. take this to the shop your getting the Plexiglas from and have them cut it for you to shape. and put a piese of tint on the back (black works great or titanium". now remove the radio, remove the dash shield, install the plexi, hot glue will do or drill a few holes and screw it in. install the radio and dash shield. There you go a fully customized system.
if it is not a factory fitted radio ther should be 2 holes in eatch side of the face of it. you can normaly buy the tool from any moter shop but if not get a wire coat hanger cut 4 lenghs the size of your finger push them in each of the holes then pull it out.
i have a 2002 ford escape and i bought a double din radio and it did not fit and found out it is actually a din and 3/4 with out serious mods (cutting a bigger hole in dash) double din wont fit i bought a single din stereo and a din a 3/4 dash kit works fine
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.
I solved my own problem.1 I removed radio face 2 I removed back cover of radio face to expose USB solder joints.3 I drilled a hole in the back cover of radio face over solder joints 4 I drilled a hole in front cover of radio behind face plate and lined it up with hole in back cover of face plate.5 I cut the male plug off of a USB extension cord and ran it through factory notch on the back of radio,through drilled hole on front panel of radio, thruogh drilled hole on back cover of radio face and soldered wires to back side of USB plug in. Wire colors from top to bottom are Red, White, Green, Black. Solder sheild to any of the three larger solder joints next to these connections. Make sure wires are not touching any other connections. Put radio back together and add screw that locks face to radio. Face can no longer be removed with this wire added. Now I can plug in my 8gb memory stick,hide it under the dash and have a clean looking installation.
