Removing the box cover can perplex the first timer . . . First, unlatch the front cover latch, then use a flat bladed screwdriver to pry the large metal rear latch up. Then pinch/squeeze the large metal rear latch to disengage it from the hinge. Lift and angle the cover forward, towards the engine bay, and you should be able to remove the cover with resorting to a torch and cutting attachments on the dremel . . .Thanks to MTI from 190revolution.net

Stereo wiring
Constant 12v- Red
Switched 12v- Black/Yellow
Illumination- grey/blue
Ground- Brown
antenna- Blue (single female spade connector)

More on Speakers:
Dash ( all years) = 4 inch
Door speakers ( 91+ or whenever they switched to alpine HUs) = 4 inch
rear deck ( pre 90) = 4 inch, but you can enlarge the hole in the deck to fit up to 6 inches easily.
Rear deck (91-93) = 5.25 -6 in, bolts up to the factory speaker pod inplace of teh stock speaker.
in the rear Deck you can fit 6x9s but it may require modification to the metal part of the rear deck.

it is highly recommended that you run independent wiring to each speaker.

When posting stalling/running/starting issues please post a maintenance history on the car and a detailed description of whats going on and when it seems to happen. one liners will get locked. if your post looks like spam it will get deleted.
