As of May 2012, I'm the reasonably-proud owner of a 2001 Honda Stream 2.0 SE. The radio that the car came with didn't have a line input, so my first job was to replace it with one that did...
The original Honda radio had the same kind of connector as the rest of the car's electrical systems, rather than standard ISO 10487 connectors. Adaptors are readily available on eBay.
Dashboard Center Panel Removal/Installation section describes
how to dismantle the dashboard — in theory.
Here's what I actually did:
- Put the transmission in neutral, otherwise the gearstick will get in the way later. (The manual doesn't mention this.)
- Open the glove box.
- Unclip the stops from either side of the glove box; this will let you tip it all the way forward, and give you access to the back of the dashboard.
- The manual says to unclip the gearstick surround from the dashboard
by pushing from the back with
a wrench wrapped with shop towel. I tried this with no success. However, you can easily reach the back of the cigarette lighter socket, and unplugging it will give you a convenient hole from which you can pull the surround forwards to unclip it.
- Undo the screws at the bottom of the centre panel and tilt it forwards.
- Unplug the climate control panel's connectors. I only needed to do one of these to get at the radio.
- Change the radio.
- Reassemble the dashboard by doing all the above steps in reverse.
