Hi all, I've just bought a 1.8 TS 156 and I can say that I'm amazingly pleased! However, I need help replacing the stereo, I've gotten as far as mounting my 6*9's and new front speakers and wiring it with monster cable, I cannot unfortunately take out the old stereo as I'm not quite sure how and don't want to damage it in any way!

Any help would be gratefully accepted! Cheers!!!

EDIT : Figured it out in the end... how simple was that?!? Stick a couple of nails down the two holes in the stereo and it pops right out!!! Wooo!:devil:

I replaced it with a Kenwood KDC-609MP3 or something along those lines, it's an MP3 playing head unit. Absolutely fantastic! I love it! I also replaced the speakers in the front doors with Kenwood speakers, and have disconnected the two back door speakers. Then in the back I've installed two Kenwood 6*9's using mini plasterboard steel raw plugs to adapt the weird holes in the Alfa plastic into something "Boltable!"
I also ran Monster Cable to the 6*9's instead of the normal standard cable and BOYYY what a difference!

Easy with even minor (unsecure) installs on your on hands.
156 is very strange with electronics.
