Default How to remove your dash (video)

Here's a video that I did on how to remove your dash. Allowing you to get to your deck, HVAC, dimmer switch and gauge cluster. I also show what screws are needed to remove those.

Thank you so much. Need to replace hazard relay and was not sure about it. You made it a less stressful decision.

Thanks guys.

Hope this helps lots of people, it's not too hard after you do it once, it's just all about knowing what to do the first time.

Any questions feel free to post them here/pm me/message me on youtube/comment on the video.

after watching the video for 1:20 minutes i got dizzy cuz of too much camera movement lol. i notice in the video you have a grand pee shift **** with high performance shift button is the button wired? i think the grand pee shift **** is too big and goofy looking. the regal shifter is little smaller and prob better looking...all in all imo the monte shifter is sportier and better looking than the grand pee and regal i think. i have couple of regal shifter ***** if you change your mind and plenty more for the grand pee.

i love the grand prix ****, i dont think it will look as big when i turn it black, now i think it looks huge because it stands out being grey but we'll see, i was a little shaky but not really during the key parts where you had to see what to do lol

sure:

I have the kenwood DDX-514, and it's connected with the Axxess GMOS-04 and an antenna adapter for the radio:

antenna adapter:

Also, for my headunit i needed a double din mounting kit, but you will also need it for a single din headunit:

double din:

http://www.crutchfield.com/p_003GMK4...t.html?tp=3121

Single din:

http://www.crutchfield.com/p_1209920...t.html?tp=3121

Also, have the Kenwood KCA-BT200, for the bluetooth interface with my phone.

Lastly as far as actual sounds go, I have two amps, (1) Alpine MRP-M500 for my Alpine Type-R 10", and (1) Alpine MRP-F300 for my two kicker DS650.2 components in the front doors. I also have a 1.5k Farad Capacitator, but that was more just for looks.

The Alpine Type-R is in a box built to specs and I have no rear speakers, so the rear speaker holes are acting as ports.

Hope this helps, if you check more of my vids on that account you can see most of the stuff I just listed.

i may make a video on how to run the wires for a sub, but there wont be a speakers video unless i need to pull the door panels off again. i do have a video on how to remove the rear deck lid to get back to the rear speakers on my youtube page if your curious
