Over 10,000 car stereo and speaker removal instructions posted!

I downloaded your instructions for removing the door speaker from my 2005 Chrysler Crossfire.  The dealer wanted $250.00 to swap out just the one speaker.  You have a great service. Kevin Denver, CO.

Thank you for posting removal instructions at your site. I was able to quickly and easily uninstall the stereo in my 2000 Honda Civic and I have never done any type of work like that on my car! Shirley Portland, ME.

I just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for the great car stereo removal guide. I just purchased your guide for my car and the straight-forward simple steps helped me remove the stereo in about 20 minutes - and all without annihilating my dash and stereo. Justin Columbia, MO.

Hey, just wanted to say thanks alot.  Stinkin' Best Buy wanted over $70 to install some speakers, then kept me waiting over 2 hours till I walked.  I followed your instructions and they worked perfectly. Steven Victorville, CA.
