Hi Sir or Madam, welcome. I'm acramstr. And I will be assisting you today.no special tools are needed but there are differences in the different years so be sure to get an 03 one . Here is how the radio comes out then just unscrew it and transfer it to the brackets. Here are some links to show you how . Put tape around the hole in the dash so the bracket doesn't scratch it

Could you please, help me to understand the paragraph to remove the cover ( plood) in the first link: (http://www.mdxers.org/forums/19-audio-electronics/14043-my-ipod-blitzsafe-install.html)


 


The instructions from the link:


------------------------


The first thing to do was remove the plood from around the head unit. I used the coat hanger trick mentioned by Mjaime in another thread. (Scroll down a few posts.) It worked fine. Just stick the coat hanger in your vent (about 2 or 3 inches in) and carefully/gently pull the plood out. See Mjaime's instructions for more details if you need them. The red circle shows the hook I made at the end of the hanger. Once you get it started, just work the plood out by hand.


------------------------


 


When I tried to click from the above paragraph the "Mjaime in another thread" the link doesn't show anything, so I have trouble to understand how I can remove the cover...


 


Thanks,


Willy

What he is trying to say is make a hook and slide it through the vent and hook onto the rear of the vent and pull it out (about 3 inches back) . The whole wood grain piece just clips in.
