How to get to my Aftermarket double din head unit

I bought the truck used off some guy who has a 7'' double din Alpine head unit with GPS

I want to put a single 10'' under the rear seats I got everything I need all the wires but I have no clue how to take out the deck so I can plug in the RCA and remote wires to the back of it,

is there a guide on here that I can follow so I know what I need to do to get to the back of my aftermarket deck to plug in the cables for the amp

Re: How to get to my Aftermarket double din head unit

Ridgeline dash is super easy to remove. Use a pry tool, I prefer the composite type, to start popping the dash face off, start under the steering wheel, pop it free of all the push-in fasterners, lower the tilt wheel all the way, use the steering column release to put the tranny into 1st, reach behind the dash and disco all the electrical connectors, there are several. Then just lift the dash face out. There are 5 screws that hold the audio unit in.
Install is the reverse just be sure to reconnect all the wiring connectors...

Re: How to get to my Aftermarket double din head unit

Ok Thanks

here is the alpine that came with the car
I hope it has subwoofer pre outputs on the back so I can run rca's for the amp

I know some decks made by alpine make you buy all kinds of extras to do things that other dacks have stock



the model is IVA-w505

if anyone know if it has amp outputs so I dont waste my time getting to the back just to find out I need to buy a piece to have RCAs hooked up "_+
