Forester stereo install help
Posted 26 March 2004 - 10:46 AM
I'm looking for something to replace my factory stereo. I have found the unit I want (sony). The store has "free" installation for $36.00? They say it's for adapters an connectors. Seems like a heck of a price for a plastic connector and a metal bracket.
When I had one installed in my Camry, they had it installed in 5 minutes!
My question is how easy is it to install one in a Forester? I have replaced my dash with the "wood grain", so I'm familiar with disassembly to gain access to the general area of the stereo.
82 Beast, that now runs!
01 Forester, needs a working clock and a better stereo:mad:

There might have been a couple of screws in the cover over the stereo but I am not sure now. I did not have to pull the cupholder and the cover popped off easily.
On mine the stereo is held in by a couple of screws once you get the cover off.
Since stereos usually come with dierctions it should be fairly easy.
If you buy from Crutchfield they come with good directions.

The adapter is easier for sure and would make putting the old one back to sell it simple.
