Talking How to remove and install the stereo amplifier

I have a 2003 SL 500 & my stereo amplifier is out and needs to be replaced. First can it be replaced with any high end amplifier? Second how cumbersome is it to do yourself and it is worth it? If anyone has instructions on how to replace it and what would be the best suitable replacement please let me know! Lastly can the whole navigation/stereo system be upgraded & if so what are the options. Thanks!

Its not a easy job since you have the wires on the amp and you won't know which one is which without a schematic sheet. You for sure replace the factory amp with an after market one.

But a schematic sheet is not a problem. What do you actually mean with the sentence above (bold text)? I mean the factory amp is fibre connected, I don't think there are a lot of after market options for that (some may exist).

Well the Factory amp is going to have speaker wiring coming from the radio and have wiring go to the speakers. Just tap into the wiring before the amp and then reuse the wiring going to the speakers. And you should be able to make it work.
