HI again Fozzy

The Sony system does not POP OUT!

Its bolted into a cage which in turn has 4 bolts into the bulkhead as a security measure. The only way to remove it is to remove the dash surround.

Start with the gear surround plastic, the end nearest the rear of the car lifts up....then just work your way upwards, removing Climate control and finally audio surround / cubby hole unit.

Most screws and bolts are obviously placed ...just start from the bottom.

Re the wheels.....most peeps on Cel;ic-club are running 18 and this still leaves huge gaps in the arches until lowered. Some people have 19's so dont worry re the fit. Just ensure the corrent fit....PCD 100, 5 stud, et I think is 35 to 38.

The only issue you need to worry about relates to your earlier thread on kits. Some kits like the veilside are very low and with lowering springs...life becomes tougher still!

I am currently fiiting a pc and audio system to my G7. The PC will have sat nav using a voice software based on autoroute 2004....£29!!!!!!!!!!! Bargain

Hope this piccy helps.....


Many of your questions have been answered a thousand times on celica-club......without plugging it too much...pay it a visit as well as this site, like I do. The meets are great also! Many of our members are members on here too! Clubs need to support each other.

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
