    Default 2007 Camry Factory Radio Removal

    Just purchased a 2007 Camry SE. I am going to replace the factory radio with an aftermarket Alpine system. Currently there are no radio kits available but I am told by my local car radio supplier that it should not be much longer.

    My question is regarding the removal of the factory radio. Has anyone had the opportunity to remove there radio? If so, I would appreciate any tips that you may offer on the removal process.

    I just pulled the JBL head unit from my 07 Hybrid to add the XM satellite radio. Procedure is pretty straight forward:

    1. Remove the top center air vent assembly. It comes straight out but there are clips along the top and bottom seams. Disconnect harness.
    2. Remove shift knob and the shift console cover by gently pulling up to release clips. Take your time so you don't break any of the plastic pieces.
    3. Remove shift console top cover trim by gently pulling up. Note harness.
    4. Remove the vertical trim columns to the right and left of the storage box (that is below the climate controls) by pulling straight out - again releasing clips.
    5. The space behind the vertical trim columns will reveal screws that hold down the storage box. Remove the screws and partially pull out the box. Note harness.
    6. (Steps 2 thru 5 are necessary to gain access to two bottom bolts securing the bottom of the head unit/climate control assembly) Remove the two bottom bolts.
    7. (Step 1 gains access to two top bolts securing the top of the head unit/climate control assembly) Remove the two top bolts.
    8. Slide head unit/climate control assembly out. Disconnect harnesses.

    Before you start - disconnect the negative battery terminal and set your shifter as far back as possible. Good luck.

    Did your HYBRID have the nav unit or the base unit

    I am getting ready to do the exact same thing. Where did you put the XM antenna?

    Would any modification/personal installation to upgrade speakers or head unit void the warranty of the car? Does anyone know?

    Never. Unless you damaged something in the install and it can be proved that your work did the damage. Even then only the item you damaged would not have the coverage.
