Radio removal serious problem...

So I borrowed DIN keys from a local audio shop real quick in the parking lot to get my stock radio out of the truck I bought today...

Well the right side clip is apparently broken... So the radio is not coming out...


I want to put my aftermarket CD player in there. I dont give two ****s about the stock one, its a tape player/radio.

So what do I do?

pull the dash face off completely and check the clips make sure they are engaging sometimes you can wiggle the tools just right and they come out

Make sure the clips are all the way in. You should here a clicking noise when they are fully seated. I know mine were a little hard to push in.

Also once you hear the click stop right there if you go past the click the clips disengage again

Yea, i was a little disappointed when i couldnt put a box under my seat. I hate shallow mount subs, but thats what i had to get. I have 3 Rockford P3's behind my back seat powered by an Alpine MRP-1000 amp.




heres the deck


you can kinda see the speakers here. I really like them, polk MOMO coaxials that wired up like components. so you can put an amp to them, or run them off the deck power like i did.

When you put the keys in, after you feel them go into position, push them outwards and pull towards you, that in turn pushes the clips inward to let them come past the dash piece.

they dont make anything for under the seat. You gotta get a box that goes behind the back seat and run shallow 10" or 12" subs. its kinda retarded lol, youd think there would be more room in these CC trucks. but i know for the extended cab you can get a box uner the seat.
