Hello everyone,
Just recently I bought a new deck to replace the factory stereo, as
well and all the neccessary stuff (i.e. harness and mounting plate). I
tried to follow the instructions I found online for removing the panel
but got stuck right in the beginning...

I managed to remove safely the front plate (trim) on the AC control
panel as well as the trim of the stereo. I ended up with clear view of
the stereo and the 4 bolts that need to be removed. However I cannot
remove the actual AC controls (the 3 knobs). It appears to me they need
to be removed in order to get access the the two lower bolts that hold
the brackets with the stereo.

Could someone give me some idea how I can remove the AC panel (with the
knobs) without screwing up something??? I would really greatly
appreciate any directions as to how to do that... Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

Alan D.

Not positive on your model but most knobs just pull straight off. Try using
a rag over knob so you don't scratch it and grab with pliers then pull
straight out.

That lower panel will the three knobs comes right off. Yank the bastard
out. Wrap a rad around a flat head and work it out from the corners. Easy
as pie.
