How to Remove the in Dash Receiver in a Toyota Camry

The Camry comes equipped with a factory radio and speakers. Many audio enthusiasts, however, prefer to replace the existing factory radio with a high-performance aftermarket receiver. Removing the factory in-dash receiver from your Camry is the essential first step in this process.

  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Small flathead screwdriver
  • 10 mm socket wrench with extension

      Take any media, like CDs or cassettes out of the Camry's in-dash receiver. Turn off the car's ignition and set the parking brake.

      Unscrew the gear shift knob (turn to the left) and remove the knob. Open the door of the storage compartment in the lower dash, then pull up the trim panel around the shifter and remove it. Start from the back of the panel.
