In the Army you are out in a field with a radio, a copper wire, a metal stake, and you pitch a tent. Its a radio similar to Cb radio 2 ways. You can run a wire 34 feet across between two trees about 15 feet up. make sure you tie the wire at both ends with Nylon rope(plastic) to the trees. Take the 4 to 6 feet metal rod drive into earth(ground). Attach center coax piece to wire strung between trees at one end. Attach shield to Ground Rod. Another way is to nail a board about 15 feet up, attach a copper wire 34 feet going out one way and another 34 feet the other side. It will form a Pyramid. Tie to two stakes in ground at both ends with nylon rope. It will make do for a fast Cb radio emergency camp radio. It may get stations 15 to 30 miles away. Try camping on a Mountain top with a portable 12 volt battery,Mobile CB, Copper wire, Metal stakes,plastic rope, Square plastic piece 14 inches long or a board piece.
Almost all aftermarket radios come out through the front. The radios come with two pieces of, best described, about 6 inch long pieces of flat metal about a half inch heigh. After removing the face plate one piece is pushed in on each side. This pushes the clip that holds the radio aside and you can pull the radio out of its housing forward and out. If you can get under the dash unhook and wiring to the radio first, and don't forget the antenna. Instead of the factory tool you may be able to use two flat dinner knives.
first thing you should unhook your battery just to be safe. you have to take out the bracket that holds everything. the cover. it is a clip on and clip off. use a flat head screw driver and pry it off. one corner at a time and then eventually it should come right off. under that there are brackets holding the radio in place. unscrew the screws that bind the two. un plug anything that is connected to the radio. they should easily come off they are clip connected. after you removed all wires going from and too the radio and the screws have been taken out. it should slide right out. if you are buying a after market radio or navigation screen you will have to buy the correct casing that holds the radio. as there might be a gap between the radio and the plastic. just repeat backwards to reinstall everything. be carefull not to break or crack the plastic when removing it with a flat head. hope I could help.
Remove the ashtray. Pop the plastic bezel that sits around the shifter. under that you will see two screws on the left and right of the shifter. remove those. lift and roll that upward, as you do disconnect the DC power socket, and you should be able to continue rolling that up till it pops out and get it out of your way. you will then see 4 screws that hold the radio mount in place remove those and then remove the bolts that hold the radio in place on the side of the bracket. then install new kit and complete the process in reverse.
Locate and remove two (2) phillips screws that secure the top of the plastic panel that surrounds the radio. The plastic dash panel will pull off once the screws are removed as shown in the photo above. The front of the radio is held in with two (2) 7mm bolt screws at the top of the radio. Remove the 2 bolt screws. There is a hidden radio that secures the rear of the radio and is located under the radio. Pull the ashtray to its extended position. You will need to lay on your back or side and look behind the ashtray, up to the bottom of the radio. Once the ashtray has been pull to its extended position, you should be able to locate and remove one (1) 7mm bolt screw as seen in the photo above. Once all screws have been removed, the radio can then be removed. Pull firmly on the radio to remove it from the dash. The radio will most likely resist pulling from the dash. The antenna cable which plugs into the rear of the radio is very short and gives the radio resistance when trying to pull the radio out of the dash. Continue to pull firmly and the antenna cable will unplug itself as the radio is pulled from the dash. Unplug (1) blue, (1) white, and (1) black wire harness connector(s) from the rear of the radio. There will also be wires extending from the rear of the radio with a plastic connector attached to the wires about 4 inches from the rear of the radio. Unplug this small connector. The radio can now be completely removed from the dash. Set it aside. You will need to remove the plastic brackets attached to the top and bottom of the GM radio. This will be shown in detail in the "Mount New Radio" section.
Start by pulling off the heating/ventilation lever tabs. Next, use a flathead screwdriver to insert under the edges and pry loose the radio/hvac dash panel - this is the panel that surrounds the radio and the heating controls. Then, with the panel off, remove the screws holding the radio bracket to the dash, and pull out the radio and bracket as a unit. Unplug the harness from the back of the radio. Then unscrew the radio from the bracket.
Open the glove box door. Let it drop all the way down by
flexing the small plastic that stops it from falling to the side.
To the left side of the glove box front, you will find a screw (or two) which holds the molding around the radio together. Remove these screws, then pull off the molding.
Once you have removed the molding, you will find a screw on opposite sides of the radio. These hold the
radio bracket to the dash board. Take these out and slide the radio forward. There will be a connector
which needs carefully removed from the rear of the radio. The antenna then should be
unplugged as well. After wards, the radio will slide right out. You will install a new radio from the reverse.
