Is it even possible to replace with aftermarket radio ? considering the surrounding panel is also used for HVAC controls..I just wish i could listen to all the music that's on my MP3 in my new Scoob..

 

If not,guess i'll have to burn a few CDs then..  :huh:

I found the kit on Crutchfield before.  I haven't used it yet but I have seen a few that had it done and it turned out ok.

nipper has a thread on this subject, there is a mod that will give you room to put a radio in without trashing your hvac controls.

it does involve cutting the circuit board and doing some fine soldering

I have seen replacement surrounds that let you mount DIN radios, they look fine.

 

If you go FM transmitter, consider using an in-line type. More time to install but better sound quality.

 

You could also look for someone selling a newer OE radio, they added an aux in maybe in 07?

 

Lastly, I thought someone had made an adapter that would plug into the SAT or changer input or something to give you an AUX in without hacking wires/etc..
