Radio Installation Tools required One short length #2 Phillips screwdriver One medium length #2 Phillips screwdriver One long length #2 Phillips screwdriver (must be magnetic) (I use a magnetic screwdriver extension on my medium screwdriver) Helpful tool: 1/4 inch ratchet driver with 1/4″ socket to accept a 1/4″ #2 Phillips screwdriver bit. Allows for more torque than the short #2 Phillips screwdriver. Step 1: disconnect negative battery cable and wait 10 minutes. Why do this? Because we will be working directly over the airbag control module, one static discharge could inflate an airbag. In practice I have never heard of an incidental airbag inflation, but it is better to be safe than sorry. Step 2: disconnect the climate control cable from the heater duct. ???? Climate control models ???? Below the passenger’s side of the dash a cable from the temperature dial is connected to the heating duct. If this cable is not disconnected it is more difficult to pull the radio which is attached to a bracket which also holds the climate control dials. Damage to the cable (kinks) may also result if this step is skipped. Audio System Installation Guide

Safety precautions Always cut the current to the headlamps before replacing the lamps. Do not touch the high and low beam stalk during work due to the high voltage and risk of explosion. Remove the keys and lock the car. Allow the lamp to cool. Use protective goggles and gloves when replacing the lamp. The glass body of the Bi-Xenon-lamp is filled with different gases and metal vapors which are under pressure. Never touch the glass body of the lamp. Only touch the lamp at the socket. Remove any finger prints from the glass using a cloth and alcohol. The lamp must only be used in enclosed headlamps. The replaced Bi-Xenon lamp must be treated as hazardous waste and must be sent for recycling.
