I suspect it would not work well to only remove that, but don't know for sure.

That module is super light.

Need to decide where and what to cut, if necessary.

Any ETA on the write up?

Thanks

I just pulled the entire stereo harness and nothing that wasn’t the stereo harness. It’s 100% self contained/separate from the body harness.

So are you constructing an entirely new harness for the Avant3 install?

Thanks

Ah, ok. Thought you were going to use only those components of the stock harness that were necessary, like power, ground, can bus, antenna, speaker cables, etc.

BTW what did you decide for speakers? Thought you posted this somewhere but I cannot seem to find.

Looking forward to the pics and write up.

Thanks

Not easy, no. I took out the entire interior, including the carpet and dash board.

Both sides IIRC.

No, I got hung up waiting on my new battery cable working its way through customs.

(my project is much more involved than the stereo harness delete alone)
