I have a 2005 Frontier Extended Cab. How do you remove the stock stereo and door panels? I am a pretty handy guy but I dont want to butcher my new car
Thanks,
Darrell

To remove the headunit, start pulling where the two oulets are the bottom right corner. The panel will pop out and there are 4 or 6 screws holding in the headunit. All the door panels are the same start by taking off the small silver piece next to the door handle then take out the piece that is behind the door handle. If you use a small flat screw driver you'll be ok. This will expose one of three screws you will have to remove. The other two are behind the arm rest. To remove the arm rest simply pull it up. Its on there pretty tight but trust me pull up. Then you'll see the two remaining screws. Remove the three screws and pop the panel off. If you have power windows you will have to disconnect the harness to completely remove the panel. If you don't have power windows I am not sure how you would take the handle off. there may be a clip behind it. Hope this helps :)

Thanks, I should be getting my new HU tomorrow and this will help me out. I already got the speakers in with no problems. I'm thinking I may wire it up for an amp while I'm at it so I don't have to remove it again later when I decide to add a sub...

Chicknde: Did you run your amp wire through the firewall from the battery? If so is it hard to find where to run it through? Any tips on that? What guage did you use?...

Well I got it all done. It sounds really good. I got the RF punch 4 way 6x9's in the front doors, Infinity reference 6.5's in the rear, A/D/S tweets in the dash, and I built a box that fits under the rear passenger seat with a 10" sub. I had to remove the storage tray that was under the seat. I am running the RF sub with an old school 275 watt MTX Thunder amp. It's just enough bass to satisfy my needs... 8) The Crutchfield harness and adapter sure made things alot easier...

Where'd you get your RF 6x9's? I've been looking on crutchfield and they only have 2 - 6x9's that they say will fit the front door?

That's what I'm planning to do next...but so far I can tell you:

1. The top seat belt latch has a plastic cover and a button you pull to move the seat belt up and down. Pull on the button and lift inside rear of the button up and it'll slip out. The plastic around the button is just clipped on, so you can just pull on that.

2. The bottom part of the belt just has a plastic cover, I think you only need to remove the driver's side cover, because the passenger's side has a slip on the bottom of the panel so you don't need to remove it. It has some type of sensor on it.

I haven't done this part yet, but I'm assuming the bolts that hold the seat belt in need to be removed. It's sure is a b*tch to get em out though, cuz they're bolted in tight. Anyone have ideas on this? Thanks.

I ended up getting some metric ratcheting wrenches, 14mm to be exact, and went to town taking the seatbelt bolts off. The panels actually came off better than I thought they would...those polk audio db6500 sound good now.
