How To Remove Stock Tundra Stereo??

I just need to know how to get behind the stock stereo unit to be able to plug in an amp. I don't wanna start ripping apart things I don't have to, so any help on how to remove the stereo would save me a ton of time. Also, wondering if the stock systems even have an RCA out for an amp and subs? Any suggestions appreciated...Thanks! --Nate

Welcome to TN Garzee13, hang on a sec, let me see if I can find a site that shows pics of how to remove it.

BTW you will need to use a Line Output Convertor, the stock stereo does not have RCA outputs.....

Garzee, what's your email address? You can PM me if you don't want to post it, I am going to send you a PDF file of the instructions from the factory manual.

For future references in case anyone comes on this thread in a search the basic instructions on how to remove the panel around the Stereo.

1. Pull out the three AC control Knobs. There will be one screw behind where each knob was. Remove those screws.

2. Point vents all the way up. There will be a screw up in the vent area. Remove those screws.

3. Remove the panel by pulling on the panel on the sides of the stereo.

Once you have the panel out, there will be 4 screws holding the CD player in. Remove those screws and the radio will come out.

CAM do you have a write up for removing the 05 taco stock radio. I know I havem seen it somewhere.

I did a search using the keywords "remove stereo tacoma"

One of the threads had this link

http://homepage.mac.com/ebones/PhotoAlbum13.html

Basically just get a spatula, slide it under the AC control panel and pop out the panel. You will then see 4 10MM phillips head bolts. Remove those 4 bolts and then pull out the radio. Really simple.

Here's the wiring color codes from a previous post I made.

Pull it out and you will have access to the wiring.

Front left + is a pink wire
Front left - is a purple wire
Front right + is light green
front right - is blue

Rear left + is black
Rear left - is yellow
Right rear + is red
Right rear - is white

The turn on acc. lead that you can tap into for the amp is a very thin grey wire. There are two of them however. To find the right one i turned the car radio on and snipped the first grey wire, the radio turned off, so I knew it was that one.


On the LOC there will be a color chart that shows which wire of the LOC goes to which speaker, you will have to match it up with the color chart i listed above.

On the LOC there will be 4 individual gain controls. Find out what the max voltage input is on the amp and try to match it with the LOC.
The 12V power supply is a blue wire with yellow strip, the ground is brown.
