the first thing you'll need to do is to pry up the shiter display, disconnect the light and the ETS button. Apply praking brake, key in the ignition, foot on brake, move shifter into 1st gear. Gently lift shifter up and to the left. It will get caught on the radio trim, but will move with some gentle persuasion.

the radio trim has several clips that hold it in place. Start at the bottom and gently pull on the trim. you may have to gently rock it side to side as you pull.

Once the trim is free you will have to disconnect the heat/AC controls. if you choose not to disconnect them, turn the trim on it's side.

The radio will have 3 bolts holding it in. Does your radio have the THEFTLOCK system? If so, look in your manual for instructions on what to do.

The system prevents your radio from being installed in another car. If it is the display will say LOCKED!

The mitsubishi eclipse has never had a bose stereo your 01 gs came with an infinity stereo, if your car does have one it is because it is aftermarket. To remove it you simply take the 2 screws at the bottom of the face plate that covers the heating and radio then remove the 2 or four depending how big your stereo is and pull it out.
