Taking out the radio 06

ok, its kinda a hard process and if you mess up then you are going to mess up your ac vents, meaning they will point where ever they want to point.

by the way before you start the radio for a saab does not use a normal antenna like most cars (its actually an optic/runs off light), so an FM mod for a serius radio is useless.

anyways to remove the radio you are going to have to take off the surrounding rubberized plastic (careful because that stuff starts pealing and then its not the ssame) to do this there a clips inside of the ac vents and you have to pull those up and out on the dash at the same time. but BECAREFUL there are some that hold in the a/c vent and if those are removed then your a/c vent is F'ed. Im not really sure on how many there are in each either, so if your near a best buy they have the documents to take out factory radios, try bribbing them because they arent going to give it to you for free.

also if you want to hard wire your power source all you have to do is take out the small rubber flap thing under the outlet and then pull out on the bezel around the gearbox (looks like they put a hole in it to grab on purpose) then just get your meter and find out what wire is your accesory and ground on your ignition and wire it just like that...

ive seen where someone has takin out the facory 6 disc and replaced it with an aftermarket flip out, but you would lose the radio...if you are not concerned with the radio then go for it, looks relatively easy just by taking out the surronding gearbox.
