Exclamation 1996 Toyota Camry Install

So I recently bought a 1996 Toyota Camry LE, and it has an after market stereo in it. it appears as though the original Toyota radio was a double din, and now there's a space with some type of storage flap that you can open and put things in, IE change, wallet. I'm planning on installing a Uniden BCD996T semi-permanently (I'll probably sell the car next year, and the scanner isn't gonna go with it, of course). I haven't gotten the 996T yet, but it should be here in about a week so I can do i size comparison. Anyways, anyone done an install like this before? Thanks!

I've got a 96 LE and yes, the compartment will come out and you can mount a single DIN radio in its place (996)

been a while since I swapped out the factory stereo for a nice Kenwood. I believe the factory radio and storage compartment come out together.

The trim ring around the stereo/pocket needs to come out first (the panel with the cig lighter). Pull it from the bottom right corner, it will pop out.

There will be 4 bolts holding in the stereo/pocket assembly bracket. Once those 4 bolts are removed the entire assembly can be pulled from the dash, and the pocket can be removed from the bracket.

You can then ISO mount your scanner to the bracket, and reinstall.

Pics from a pro2066 install are shown below.

okay thanks! and i find it funny that we both have the same JVC stereo. haha. does it matter if it stays on top or not? I think I want the scanner closer to me.

There shouldn't be any problems swapping the order of the units.

That has got to be one of the most clean and professional mobile installs I've ever seen.. It looks factory..

Very well done!

OK, I confess...I have no idea what a "DIN" is. Who wants to educate me.
