It is real easy did it twice in about 3 and a half hours. The first unit the CD player was messed up. Anyway pick out your new head unit. (Remember its a tracker not an escalade) Remove the old unit the trim ring around the old one removes from the top careful around the vents. Then 2 skrews on the face plate of the old radio. Remove the ashtray and the Phillips head skrew in the top edge this should allow the radio to slide forward. There is a curved piece of metal that acts as a brace for the radio remove this also unplug it and slide it the rest of the way out. Follow instructions on mounting the new unit. Get an adapter plug at best buy or Wall-Mart, Take new unit solder it to the adapter following the diagram provided with adapter, plug in to new unit and to wireing harness set the clock and go.

it is not practical to change the head unit on a RX8 The above answer is correct. There are many ways to make an after market head unit "fit" into the RX8, but you will probably lose the steering wheel stereo controls. You can connect aftermarket amplifiers to the stock head units speaker output and use aftermarket speakers. Get the MP3/CDROM addition for the stock CDROM head unit from a Mazda dealer.
Buy a Chilton's repair manual. It has step buy step instructions.
radio = head unit same thing, different names
Replace it , meaning the cracked head or the gasket . Neither can be repaired . The head can be repaired if its only warped from overheating by having it surfaced . It is best on the 8 valve or the 16 valve engines to replace with new parts.
Replacing the head gasket on any vehicle is a long and complicated process, however if you wish to see basic step-by-step instructions go to the related question on the right side of the page "How do you replace a head gasket?"

There is no way possible to remove the stereo and replace it with an aftermarket stereo. I have talked to 15 Nissan Dealers and Nissan head technical office. They all state that it can not be done. --+Skifo How Much

Yes, replace the head bolts with new ones.

It was because of the tracker jacker stings
Yes, but in some cases you would have to install an aftermarket head unit.
In short you have to take the head off, replace the gasket/s and replace the head. You best bring it to a pro.
Good question for sure!I could not find a fuse specifically in the fuse box at the dash (driver side) for it either?So I would guess you have a aftermarket radio in the truck and it definitely does a have a inline fuse that will be behind the radio head itself!Mine does and the easiest way to see it is removing the four screws that hold the head unit mount and pull it forward towards the gear shift auto,or manual and there will be a fuse.The only other fuse that would maybe be radio in the standard fuse box to me would be the room fuse unless I am overthinking the problem.Simple fix since most people do have aftermarket radios in there trucks and they always have a inline fuse.Hope this helps,I have owned my truck 23 years never had to replace the fuse for the stock or now aftermarket head unit.It is a easy fix regardless.
Remove head change gasket and replace head, pretty simple.
I replaced the stock radio in my 04 with another stock radio. I'm not sure about the 03, but my 04 has the "anti-theft" system on it...or whatever they call it. I bought a stock radio from a salvage yard and swapped it out. But I had to take it to the dealership and pay them $40 to hook up their computer to it and program the "anti-theft" code into the new radio. The radio isn't hard to swap out, pop the plastic trim unit off the front and four screws ( or 8mm bolts...can't remember which right now) and the radio slides out. Just unplug the power cable and antenna and plug them into the new ones. If you go in with an aftermarket, head to a car stereo shop or Best Buy and buy the plug that fits from the aftermarket radio to GMC. It saves from needing to do any rewiring.
replace head gasket
There are several companies that repair Jaguar radios for a flat rate. Just 'Google' Jaguar radio repair. If you want to keep the stock unit, or just replace the head with an aftermarket, you can get all the facias. What I want to find is a reasonable LCD clock repair for that car. Some 'highwaymen' in England will do this for $200, which is rediculous for a $5 part.
yes you need to replace head bolts
