A X-mas Story
Posted 07 January 2004 - 02:02 PM
Now we get to the fun part of this little story. Growing anxious, and not being the patient type, I decided to pull apart my stereo before the kit arrived. If you listened to some of the local radio stations, you would find this to be rational behavoir I compared the mount brackets from the OEM to my new stereo, and lo and behold, they matched! I was even able to use the bracket screws from the OEM!!
Now came the fun task of wiring. Thinking quickly, I grabbed my Haynes manual and flipped to the electrical schematic section, and, again, I was astonished! They had the complete wiring diagram for the stereo system.
To sum up the story, I didn't even NEED the installation kit! Through curiosity, a little impatience, and some wire nuts, I was able to get my stereo installed a WEEK before that kit arrived, and saved myself $26 too boot! Now who says miracles don't happen on X-mas?
Any other "pleasant surprise" stories out there???

umm.... I installed a new thermostat in no time and the dealer actually had it in stock. Not that common with my dealer.:santa:
Wow, that IS a miracle. It took my local dealer two weeks to get a stupid clutch fork in.

Nowadays I hear they have these things called wiring harness adaptors which was apparently non-existant in 1999 for a 1999 subaru.
