Hey guys!!

First of all I'll just say hi. I'm new here, this is my first post. I just bought a black 98 legacy 2.5 GT. My mom has had a 97 legacy 2.5 GT wagon for the last 6 years, I loved it so i decided to buy my own. I previously drove a 92 mazda mx-3 GS, which is for sale right now. This is a website of my last car. http://members.sound...com/polskis_mx3

Ok heres my question. How do u take the stock radio out? and also the stock radios look kinda narrow, is it the normal size? will my aftermarket deck fit in?

thx alot guys, i appreciate ur help

Subaru's use DIN or Double DIN standard size radio's. If you have the larger double DIN factory radio you will need to get a DIN radio sized storage compartment (dealer/scrapyard/Crutchfield) to fill the extra space when installing the smaller aftermarket radio.

Most GT's have a single DIN radio so you can just drop in most aftermarket radios. You should get a Subaru wiring harness to avoid having to splice the factory wiring harness. Subaru antenna connections are standard.

Here is my radio/speaker installation guide for the 00-04 Legacy/Outback. The earlier models are different but very similar, so most of whats in this guide will apply including the wiring harness part numbers.
