Here’s a picture of a Toyota Land Cruiser stereo. As you see, the radio is surrounding by trim panel. If you want to upgrade the radio, you have to remove the trim panel which is covering it first. The upgrade steps are a little complicated. You’d better ask a professional car stereo upgrade staff to do the upgrade.
If you insist to do it yourself, please make sure you know how to do it well. The following steps are for your reference. Please remove negative cable on the battery before the upgrade.
The trim panel should be removed from the bottom to the top. Let’s begin.
Step1: use your hands to remove the left part of the trim panel which is next to the gear shifter from the bottom. It’s long. So, you should take it out carefully to avoid breaking it.
Step2: remove the right part of the trim panel which is next to the great shifter from the bottom, too.
Step3: remove the screws which are fixing top parts of the trim panel. The screws can be seen after step 1 and 2. They are at the bottom of the top parts of the trim panel.
Step4: remove the left top part of the trim panel with your hands. Hold it from the bottom and loosen it gently until it can be taken out of the dashboard. Remove the right top part of the trim panel as the same.
Step5: remove the screws which are fixing the radio. They are at the four corners of the radio. After removing, take the radio out of the dash with cradle.
Step6: remove the screws on the cradle and release the radio from it.
Now, you have removed a Toyota Land Cruiser stereo completely.
Then, connect your new unit to the car. There are many wires for the head unit. Please connect them correctly. If you have a wiring diagram, it would be great. If you don’t have one, and you don’t know how to connect them, please ask for help. You dealer may help you in a way.
After installation, you can test the new unit to see whether it works well. If it’s good, you have to fix the new unit in the dashboard and install all the trim panel back to its place.
