In the two pictures to the left:

  • Top picture shows a loose center dust cover.
  • Bottom picture shows a flopping center dust cover.

Usually a slight tug upwards near the four corners where the screws mount the Bose speaker frame to the rear deck uncovers this problem.Removing the screw from the area that is loose and finding a longer screw along with a large washer works to hold this plastic trim down.

DO NOT CUT FACTORY WIRE HARNESS
   
Aftermarket stereo installation? Why purchase the aftermarket wire harness? Installation is easier, no guess work with wire color codes and a Headache Saver! Factory wire colors codes are not universal. See Aftermarket Videos above.
We discourage cutting the factory wire harness.
This section aids in troubleshooting and determining wire color codes, phasing for speaker hook up, locating power wires for installing external devices and add-ons.
