I want to remove the fitted Saab radio to put in a different system.
Tough job for a do-it-yourselfer ?
Is it easier/better to add a CD Stacker to the Saab CD/radio system? Is it costly to then get the stacker fitted ?
Any advice would be appreciated.
Cheers all!

Hi Andy, removing the radio is a fairly simple job, but you will need a conversion kit as the wiring harness on the c900 is different than an aftermarket CD head unit. Once you have that taken care of, installing your new unit is fairly simple. Matt Faulks has written a very good how-to for this site, which you can read here.

P.S. If your car is still fitted with the factory Clarion radio, you will need to remove the cage to access the wiring. Just grab a screwdriver and start bending tabs until it comes loose, then you can unplug the cage from the connector and you might be ready to go. The stock unit is designed to be removed and carried around as an anti-theft measure, and the connectors at the back of the cage will not connect to anything besides the stock radio. If you plan on selling the Clarion, you need to save the cage, so be careful when you are removing it as it is near impossible to bend it back to the proper shape.

You must gat a Saab CD changer if you keep the Saab head unit. I would get a used one. Saakradio. com or classifieds Should be a good source

Weigh that against a complete aftermarket system. The prices have come down significantly on car stereo -you'll get a good system for less than $200 US.
