Not quite clear is it. Maybe he means the head unit of his stereo.

I'm assuming you mean the stereo head unit.

The following is how to replace the stereo head unit in the Isuzu Trooper (or Holden Jackaroo). The Rodeo probably won't be too different.

However, the Eurovox head units installed in Australia are pretty good but let down by lousy speakers. Have you thought about upgrading the speakers first?

if it's the new model, from memory there is a screw or two at the base of the trim (sorry, i pulled mine about 4 months ago) and 4 or 6 spring clips around the trim section. Remove the screws and pull the trim straight out rearwards, then the head unit is a piece of cake, watch the air ducting is in the correct place when re-fitting and the spring clips are fitted to the trim correctly.

A word of advice, don't use the factory ground wire for your head unit , as the new model is experiencing a lot of trouble with loose groundings in the loom under the dash. the central lock / immobiliser grounds back through the ciggy lighter / power outlet loom ( not real smart i would have thought ) as well as having trouble with the immobiliser relays . mine is waiting on a replacement loom section and relay from holden as it regularly strands me when the immobiliser goes into lockout mode.

Run a seperate ground wire to a solid piece of body work - not sub dash structure, and you will avoid any hassles, as well as cut down on possible interference trouble. Sorry mate no piccies for you though....

Cheers Brad.Moo... everyone knows what a Jackaroo looks like :-)
