View Full Version : New Stereo - any pointers

03-21-2008, 01:24 PM
I am going down next week to install a new stereo in my '03 Maristar. I hope it's an easy swap between an XMD1 and CMD4A (just trying to get the extra input for an mp3). Any pointers would be appreciated starting with how do I get the dash off? Anybody done this swap? It looks like the two should be same size but are plugs the same, etc?

Any help would be appreciated as there isn't any place for supplies for miles and I won't have internet access to re-ask you guys with the knowledge any questions.

Thanks in advance.

Maybe you don't need a new head unit after all. Here a link on how to add an aux input to an XMD1:

Yeah I had seen that before but quickly ruled it out after it made my head start to hurt. Typically when I try that stuff it takes twice as long and then ends up not working right. Just not mechanically inclined I guess. Thanks for passing that on though.
