Is there anyway to remove the factory radio without buying some specialized tool? I just need to pop it out so I can get to the wiring thats behind it for the JHP guages.

Thanks,

Paul

Basically if you can put something slightly smaller than the hole into the holes about 2-3" or so you should be able to release the clips on the side of the factory radio. I used some roofing nails I had laying around and with a little wiggling the radio slid out.

Coat hanger rods bent into a "U" so you can put one in each side and pop em both at the same time works well.

Cheap "DIN" tools.

What I ended up doing is buying one from Walmart. It was like 3 bucks... It was for a little radio so I just cut them in two... stuck em in the holes and pulled on the trim and the radio popped right out.
