Quick2000: My toyota echo is very similar. I pulled all the dash parts apart, then the screws holding stereo in, but the plastic housing is still attached to the head unit and I can't see any way to get it off. No screws anywhere and I don't know what is holding the unit inside the plastic housing. HELP
louigi600: Damm it: you forgot to mention that there are 2 retention screws under the knobs and that there are also 2 retention screws on the radio head .... I broke stuff because you forgot to mention
Nathan Morris: Dear video recording chap. There are 4.8 million screws we had to take out when doing a friends Yaris that weren't mentioned. I feel this should be included in your walkthrough for future references.
sunshine blue: the question is how to put a new autoradio cauz no one want to use the old one from toyota
Mohammed Girach: Can you add an aux cable from the back of the standard cd stereo or do you have to put a new stereo in with an aux fitting?
Aforembs: Ok. Just a quick comment Guys!
In general the video is not that bad... But for the future if you are advising someone how to remove something from his or her car you should be more precise...
- 1-st of all the upper panel which contains the factory radio is ATTACHED! to the dashboard by two screws located behind the two knobs - the fan direction flow knob (first on the left hand side) and hot - cold regulator knob (first one from the right hand side). There may be also additional screw located on the left hand side of the dash on the top of left oval storage on the passenger side (the one without any covers). Without removing those screws you won't be able to lift the panel up. And if you force it you will probably brake it!!! SO WELL DONE for showing it and telling about it on your video!!! :-( :-( :-(
- 2-nd thing the lower panel is also hold by 4! SCREWS! Two on the top of original factory made radio (only visible when the upper panel is removed) and another two or sometimes 1 behind the existing ashtray (you have to remove the ashtray to be able to unscrew them). Fail to do so may result in additional panel/console damages!
All the screws and attachments are made to prevent the dashboard from unwanted noise like cracking or squeaking when driving. So ATTACHING THEM BACK ONLY WITHOUT THE SCREWS (LIKE SHOWED ON YOUR VIDEO)! Will result that the whole dash will make a lot of unwanted noises. And also some of the buttons may not work properly.
So please correct the mistakes in your video and be more precise in the future ones!
You have to remember that the material you are posting on the web is not for a mechanic (he already knows how to do it or has the factory manual/training), but for a "normal" guy who is just willing to prove himself and save some money on a simple job like that.
Chris Cerra:+TechTuners I have a 2001 Yaris, and I'm pretty keen to use my ipod or phone to play music, I noticed you've used a phono lead, but also noticed its plugged into your aftermarket system, can you remember if the stock system had phono-in or not? Only I don't fancy taking my dash apart only to be disappointed... be great if you could let me know :)
George Ward: hi would this be the same for a yaris with a cassette player ? it has the tray but we want to put a cd player in

Le Cat: I'm not exactly sure what happened here.. you have the original cd-player and the aftermarket one.. but how does that even work? Can you switch between the 2 whilst driving? Any commenet would be greatly appreciated
Sarfraz Ahmad: Excellent tutorial
mhairiba1: Thank you and them fa..ets.
Cyril Cressier: Quelles sont les dimention de l auto radio (LargeurXlongeurXProfondeur)?
Paolo Marletta: nice accent! east London?
mohd salim Yunus: Thank you very much.
bolka777: This video is flawed, in a 2002 yaris, lower plastic facia can't be removed because it is screwed from the inside. You have to unscrew 2 screws behind the ashtray and 2 next to the climate control system. After that you can remove both original and aftermarket radios/CD players together with the plastic fascia (if you want, you can now remove the fascia itself, as the screws are easily accesible).
therealsistercrow: Just bought a 2001 Yaris with an *omg* standard tape deck. Great video - will be referencing back to it very soon! Much appreciated.
Baba Ali: this video should be reversed
