Re: remove radio dash for 2005 tacoma

Well, I have a rough idea however I have not exactly done it myself yet. What you need to do is first pop out the controls for the air conditioner located under the dash with a flat head screwdriver or whatever you have. Then, if I remember right, you can get at some screws which are located above where the air was.... Don't quote me, but this is what I kind of remembered from the guy at the stereo install place when I got my Sirius installed.... I will ask around and double check. What you installing?

Get a spatula or like a putty knife or something and slide it under the AC controls. Pull that panel off. Once you have that out of the way there will be 4 10mm bolts in back of where the control panel was. Remove those bolts, then pull the CD player out. Then disconnect all the clips on the back of the CD player, and the clock/airbag light.

It was just for the door panels though, for speaker replacement.

lol, I start my new job tomorrow. Out of highschool I got a job wrenching on cars, then moved up to be a service writer. From there I got a job selling Hondas/Acura's at Norm Reeves Honda/Acura in Temecula. I then decided to sell the cars that I love and believe in-Toyota's.

I bought an XRunner the day it came out. Next day I got in touch with Loren at Rotora to let them use my truck to design a big brake kit. After a few months I was asked to take a position in Sales for them. I accepted and after a few months of waiting for them to be ready for me to start working I quit the job at Moreno Valley Toyota(Which is a great dealership with really good people, and I highly rec. them)

With this new job I will finally have livable hours, weekends off(which I haven't had since H.S) and I get to travel to different countries and attend Drift events.

I'm hoping that this turns out to be my dream job and that it's everything I've ever wanted.

So wish me luck


BTW my Name is Robert lol, everyone calls me Cam though (I used to have a SICK camry, I wish I still had it)
