Wink DIY: Whole navigation System!

****This is time consuming****

It took me the whole weekend to do if you are attempting to do this fined a nice big space to work on your car doors are going to be OPEN all the time.

Am just getting right to it, the Shop manual or the one that I have did not Show Some of the stuff that I needed to take a part to install the whole thing I did take some Pix but since it was too much work to take Pix I will use the PDF format Pix that I have.
Tools & the parts that you NEED!

1- OEM navigation system harnesses
2- The DVD player + the DVD CD
3- The motorized 7” screen
4- Center consol for the navigation controller ( you can modify your original one if you want to)
5- GPS ANTANA
6- Philips screw driver. You will use it a lot.
7- Smallest FLAT head you can find. You will use this To Unplug the Weirs it makes life a lot EASYER, or any thing that will do the job
8- A wrench + Extensions and size’s ((10m to 17m)) I can’t remember what sizes I used but I know I used the ones that are in that RANGE.
9- Get a Box to Put the Screws and BOLTS in so you DON’T lose them!

If I missed something out I will add it Later on.

OK Now the Manuel did not say how to take the steering wheel their are ( 4 ) bolts HOLDING the steering wheel. you only NEED to take them 4 bolts of to get the whole thing Out of the way when you take off the Dash Bored.

Mark How the steering shaft/wheel alignment was before taking it out because you can Adjust it by moving it Up and DOWN that is the shaft is what am referring to.

be very careful when taking the bolts of it is heavy and u don’t want to hurt your self.
