    Hi,

    Just installed a JVC AVX740 double DIN video head unit in my 98 XLT. Everything looks and works great. Since the stock 6 disc changer is no longer connected (or required) I think that it should go to make more room in the console. How difficult is it to remove?

    Thanks,

    RMH

    Scucci,

    You'd be doing me huge favor if you'd embellish the removal process. I'm missing something.
