    Question for you...

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I just came across the incredible computer installation you;ve done on your 06 Matrix...that's pretty unbelievable. Compared to what you have doe I have an incredible simple task but have no real experience and would love some advice.. I'm trying to hook up an ipod to the factory stereo and have ordered the required part (PIE: TOY03-AUX) but have no interest in paying the quoted $100 labour cost the audio places are chargin for the install. I'm almost positive I can do it myself but I have no experience removing factory face plates and rewiring car stereos. Undoubtedly you would have had to go through these steps to ge tthe stereo exposed. Is this something I can do without buggering up my system? Any help you could give me would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks again.

    Normally Toyota's have a spare jack to match the other in case for accessory input (AUX) which is what you are wanting. You simply would just plug the cable into the rear of the factory stereo. Pry out the a/c control unit and there's a few screws to remove the cd player.

    The item you're getting shouldn't make you cut any of your wires if it's from the Toyota factory. Most of the things they sell are car friendly so you don't have to go rambling through all of the wires. Also, there should be an instruction booklet that comes with the piece that shows you how to install it.

    If you're afraid to do it yourself, find a friend that knows what they are doing or just pay the money.
