Options available on aftermarket car stereos have increased over the years. Rather than settle for basic features such as a CD player and AM/FM receiver, car owners can now opt for stereos containing features such as MP3 players, DVD players, Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity and navigation aids. Porsche owners can install an aftermarket stereo in their vehicles using a special removal tool and wire adaptors.

Skill level:

  1. 1

    Insert the Porsche radio removal keys into the slots on the edges on the radio. Push the keys in until they click into place. Hooking your fingers into the rings on the end of the keys, pull the radio out of the housing in the dashboard. Unclip the wire harness by pushing the tab on the side and pulling the connection apart. Unplug the black radio antenna cable from the radio antenna port on the radio. Place the old radio to one side.

  2. 2

    Attach the radio installation sleeve to the face plate adaptor. Clip it into the slots on the face plate adaptor. Slide the new radio unit into the radio installation sleeve.

  3. 3

    Connect the wiring. Attach the wire harness adaptor to the wire harness of the Porsche. Push the connections together until they click into place. Repeat this process on the connection between the other end of the wire harness adaptor and the wire harness on the new stereo. Plug the black radio antenna cable into the radio antenna port on the rear of the aftermarket stereo.

  4. 4

    Slide the new stereo unit into the dashboard housing until the faceplate clicks into the slots to hold the stereo in place. Turn on the stereo to test the installation.
