You should check with Car Toys or Best Buy but you will probably need an adaptor and a wiring harness. If your doing it yourself your going to need to know how to get the stock radio out and the wiring diagram for the Aveo. Sometimes you can find the wiring diagram on Google by searching for it but usually finding diagrams for 2008 vehicles takes a year or two before it becomes available.

If your CD player has a tuner in it already you shouldn't need one. If it doesn't have one, that presents some other options.

    Here is the manual for it:



    http://www.docs.sony.com/release/CDXCA40...



    It does have an AM/FM radio on it according to the book.



    An adaptor is a plastic piece to fit your CD player around. It closes the gaps left from removing factory installed radios. You need to get one for GM 2008 sedan.



    You may need a bracket too to mount it in there to keep it from vibrating of falling out. Usually they come with the adaptor.



    Best Buy and Car Toys has all the stuff you need. Most stores should have it in stock.

I am trying to remove the CDX-CA400 from a Ford f450 chassis--without success. I have used a screw driver in the slot on the left side but it doesn't dislodge. Advice?


You need a radio removal kit which has the two tools to press the buttons on each side which are in the tiny slots and will allow you to slide the radio out.

The optic inside the CD player may be dirty or damp, this is the part that reads the data from the cd, you can try cd cleaning discs or you may have get an engineer to open it and clean it with an alcohol swab. The optic could also be faulty which will be cheaper to buy a new cd player.
