Removing MyLink radio

Just thought I'd share how to remove the radio.



1. Open door at top of radio bezel.



2. Insert plastic tool at bottom of radio bezel and pop first clip.



3. Work your way up.





4. You can then pop the 2 clips either side at the top.





5. Bezel removed



6. Remove four 7mm screws that hold radio in place.



7. Four connectors are in the back all held in place by a push tab.



8. Here is the main connector.



Stay tuned I will be replacing this radio with an aftermarket soon.
GMtec and 63dart like this.

Got my new Trax radio today and the technician packed the wrong harness in the box after testing it. Tested the radio on a KIA.



He felt bad, but I make mistakes too. Proper harness has been sent.

Stay tuned, this will come together...

Yeah this upgrade aside from the larger screen has NAV, Torque on board diagnostic even possibility of TPMS for vehicles that didn't come with it like 2013 models. You can also get DVD player and a whole bunch of other stuff I didn't particularly need. It comes with Android 8.0 plus regular bluetooth and WiFi.

Harness is being held at customs in Richmond BC for unknown reasons. It's a N/C item so what gives?, our government at work!!!

To be honest I was waiting for a successful install to divulge Model because I didn't want to suggest an untried radio on forum. I will PM you... Once customs releases the harness that they are keeping for whatever reason I will install this radio. If it turns out great I will publish all the details if it's a total failure well I'm the only loser. Guaranty either way I will post back.

Can't believe it! Canada customs returned the package back to seller... I'm jinxed. Seller has now resent the harness with proof it was a N/C item. Hopefully it gets here before I get too old and forget what it's for.

I don't know if it was a miscommunication on my part or the seller misunderstood but I received only the power harness in the mail this morning.



This means an other delay because I'm missing the 2 antenna adaptors and the USB mini adaptor which are different than the ones that came with the KIA kit.
