    Removing radio from '01 sts

    I want to install my Sirius direct FM antenna and to do so I have to get to the back of the radio where the antenna plugs in. So, how do I remove the radio? Does anyone have a "how to" link?

    This is something Id read a while back from Dadillac. It is for an 01 STS......But it was a reply he gave to someone to try to find a rattling sound.
    I think it does apply though seein as it ends with removing the stereo.

The trim plate has four press type clips that will release when the plate is pried upward. Put the shifter in a low gear, slide the trim plate backward, disconnect the electrical wiring, and remove the shifter trim plate. Pry off the sterreo trim plate that is above the stereo. There are two clips that will release when the trim plate is pried rearward. The stereo and climate control is removed and installed as a single unit. You will find two screws at the bottom, and one at the top. Remove those, disconnect the wiring, remove the unit. .........................................

    Here you go:

    http://www.pro-fit-intl.com/Adobe/CD-55-98.pdf

    It's instructions on how to add on a phone mount to the car that this company makes, but it gives you step by step how to get the radio out....

    Hope this helps,

    George

    Hey, this info worked! I have the direct FM plugged into the back of the radio and it is now static-free!

    Thanks for the help!
