So you had to remove the whole center panel to get your unit to fit? I'd like to know what kind it is too....

I will post the pictures up this afternoon! (soon as i get home from school :)
ya the vent seems to be blocked but not as bad as i thought. the good thing it has a angle control so i can mess with it.

I agree, you should not have to take that part out. Mine was very, very tight, but it went slid in... SOUNDS LIKE A GIRL I KNOW!!!!!!!!!!

Here are some pics of installation.

here are the steps.

you have to get the adapter: Metra 70-9002 Radio/Stereo Wire Wiring Harness Plug ( no cutting just plug)

1.take out the stock radio: (with keys or small knife)
2.unplugged all harnesses (3 usually)
4.connect the wires (using diagram or colors:D) i had 3 extra wires. just tape them for safety reasons. :eek:
5.Test if everything works before placing the unit in dash.

Best of luck to everyone.
