How do you remove the Stock radio in a 2005 Dodge Magnum SXT?

== == == == ALTHOUGH THE RADIO IS ELECTRONICALLY REGISTERED TO THE SPECIFIC VEHICLE IT IS INSTALLED IN, AND THEORETICALLY CANNOT BE USED IN ANY OTHER VEHICLE, EVEN ANOTHER MAGNUM, WITHOUT SOME FACTORY OR DEALER RE-PROGRAMMING, REMOVING IT SHOULD NOT BE A PROBLEM.

INSTALLING A NEW RADIO MAY OR MAY NOT BE A DIFFICULT TASK.

THE ONLY WAY I KNOW THIS IS THAT MY SUPPOSEDLY UNSTEALABLE '05 R/T WAS RECENTLY STOLEN, AND WAS RECOVERED TODAY, SANS RADIO. IT STILL STARTS AND APPARENTLY RUNS, ALTHOUGH I AM HAVING IT TOWED TO THE DEALER (THEY STOLE THE PLATE, TOO).

FYI, THEY STOLE THE CAR BY BURGLARIZING MY HOME AND TAKING THE KEY, PROBABLY THE WAVE OF THE FUTURE FOR CARS WITH TRANSPONDER KEYS.

THEY APPARENTLY REMOVED OR UNSCREWED A FRONT BEZEL, WHEREUPON THE RADIO/HEATER PANEL SWINGS OUT FROM THE BOTTOM. THEY THEN REMOVED THE RADIO FROM THE ASSEMBLY -- THE HVAC CONTROLS ARE STILL THERE. I HAD THE BOSTON ACOUSTIC W/SIRIUS SYSTEM. THE SPEAKERS APPEAR TO BE INTACT.
