Default 2007 Aura XR - Radio Wood Grain Trim

Hi All

I'm pretty sure I killed my radio when jump starting the car a few weeks ago (then replaced the battery).

I am considering getting another stock radio to swap in.

This XR has the wood grain trim. Does the trim come off of the face of the radio easily? Is it glued? I'd like to take it off and put it on the replacement if possible.

Thanks

I'll submit a photo shortly

I think this should be a close tutorial...

Be aware that if you want to retain signal light and chime sounds you will need a module as those are supplied through the stock head unit.
There are lots of threads you can search for more info.

Thanks for the quick reply and the video.
It doesn't really address the wood grain face plate - but when I pull the radio I'll gently see if it simply comes off the radio.

I think the wood grain on the XR radio is glued to or permanently attached to the radio.
Maybe just get a head unit with a screen that fills the full radio cavity maybe something that supports carplay or android auto.
You could get some good ideas from Crutchfield.

Wood grain was a no cost option. Most won’t have it. Have to program radio to vin
