Hello guys and welcome to my DIY for the USA spec PA15-INF. I was tired of waiting for my favorite songs to come on the radio and hate lugging around cd's so I did my research and found this item on Cruthfeild for 149.99. It will charge my Iphone- allow direct control of music on the ipod itself or through any of the controls on the radio or steering wheel. I ordered it on Monday, it came on Tuesday, and I put in on Wednesday. This was a very easy install but time consuming because I took it slow. All in all it took me 2 hours. So make sure you have plenty of daylight to burn. Ive never done a tutorial before so if I'm not as in depth as you would like just ask me any questions you have directly.
So..... LETS GET STARTED!!!
Flat-head Screw driver
Phillips Screw Driver
Copper wire clothes hanger
zipties or anything to bind the excess chord
First thing first as with any install is to disconnect the negative(black) battery terminal- but before that unlock all your doors, open your trunk and move your font seats as far up as possible to maximize room in the back seat. Disconnecting the battery will prevent damage to the head unit or electrical shock while touching wire so you can like to mod another day.
Now go to your trunk empty it out and start removing all the clips holding up all the trim pieces for the upper deck and side panels. Once all the clips are out pull down gently on the panel that is now held up by double sided tape to expose the stock sub and amp. The clips circled in red are what support the weight for entire upper panel.
Remove the clips on both sides of the trunk access door and remove the grommet that lines the interior of the trunk access door.
