Removing the Honda Pilot stereo

I finally got around to installing the harman/kardon drive+play system in my 2008 Honda Pilot (well at least the display unit). I installed the display up near the driver on the dash to the right of the steering wheel. The cable ran across the console for a few months. I blame my procrastination in large part to not knowing how to take the pilot dash apart. So, after some google searching I found this helpful PDF, detailing all the dash components to remove. As a forewarning, I found it a little unsettling pulling some of these parts off because of the metal clips you really need to give it a little muscle.

After getting the dash paneling off I ran the display cable behind the stereo to the back of the glove box. Next up is running the iPod cable, control cable and power through my center console. I’ll update this post with the completed project… might take me a while…
