Replacing stock deck - photo tutorial

Hi people, while I was replacing my deck / door speakers I snapped a few photos with my phone. Might be useful to the more timid folks out there who don't like reefing on panels until you find the right one.

getting the stock deck out is as easy as 1-2-3.

1. Start with the center panel trims on the left and right of the stack. Pull at the bottom of each one, and follow it all the way up. Once you have them detached, you can either lay them on the dash, or disconnect them and set them aside. I let them dangle because I am lazy.


2. Starting at the top of the trim on the speedometer window, pull the trim so it detaches, and keep pulling evenly on both sides until the who thing comes off to the environmental controls. It is two pieces, but is easier to remove as one piece.

3. There are 4 easily accessible screws holding the deck in, just unscrew 'em and yank the deck out!


Putting a new stock deck in is NOT as easy as 1-2-3! I bought an echo mounting kit as mentioned by someone else on the board, and while the kit was useful to provide something of a "face", it wasn't very useful to actually mount a stereo. Here is what I ended up having to do.

1. Detach mounting brackets from the stock deck.
2. Widen holes in side of deck if required. I did this with a drill, but more out of frustration...
3. Mount stock brackets onto new deck.
4. Hook toyota wiring harness on onto new deck's wiring harness. (Saves you having to chop up the wires in your dash...ask if you dont know what this is about)
5. Plug everything in and test stereo out to ensure connections are good.
6. Mount the deck with the 4 screws.
7. NOW....use the toyota echo mounting kit....all I could do was to chop off the extra tabs, and then place it in "around" the new deck. It fits in there snugly.
8. replace all the dash parts, and you have a new stock deck that works! The only drawback is that the faceplate of the mounting kit does not COMPLETELY fill the hole in the dash. It is pretty close, and doesn't look TOO bad....but I will for sure be buying the proper mounting kit once it is available.

Hope this helps someone. Pulling off doors tutorial with pics coming soon.

You left out the finale. Where's the money shot? We don't get to see the end result

Hey man. Great post. I was hoping to see what things looked like with the stock stereo pulled out. After what you said about the Echo dash kit, that makes me all the more wanting to wait for the proper Yaris dash kit. Aparewntly Metra keeps saying "2 more weeks". I dont understand what is taking so long. ;p

Sure, go nuts with the tutorial! Glad people actually find it useful. I actually just replaced the speakers this weekend, and tho I did take pictures I just need to throw them up here. I'll do that in the next day or so.

I hope I'm not stepping on your thread here, but I just installed mine and figured it made sense to put these here rather than having two threads.


These sure help. I have them as pdf files. If anyone can host them, I'll email them to you.



(don't remove the gauges - step 5)

(don't remove a/c control panel)




Before you start, disconnect the battery ground.


Remove left side trim (start and bottom and work up):



Same for the right:



Unplug both and set aside:



Remove instrument gauge trim:



This is what the clips look like:



Remove the ventilation trim (start at top):



Ready to remove stock radio:



Remove 4 screws, pull out stock radio and unplug:



This connector will not be used (for iPod):



I used the metra smart harness (no soldering):



Put new head unit in metra kit:



Plug in new head unit (antenna too):



Install with 4 screws:



Replace gauge and ventilation trim:



Plug in and reinstall left and right trim:



Install head unit face plate:



Reattach battery ground and enjoy!:
