Two Issues: Remove Glove Box And Handsfree Kit

Recommended Posts

I would like to replace the dashtrim in the car and believe you can do so quite easily if you remove the glove box. How does one do that and what are some of the hidden traps I need to look out for?

Secondly I am in the process of installing a bluetooth handsfree kit and would like to wire it up to the stereo speakers. My car is a MY02 C2 Cab with Bose. I have noticed in some of the threads regarding the power adapter found near the centre console, thats great but unfortunately they don't talk about wiring up the speaker connections and where you need to do this.

Any information on the above issues would be greatly appreciated.

The dash trim pieces are covered in the DIY section. Search for dash trim.

Becker should have what you need as a prewired cable. You might want to check with Becker Australia. Here is a link to a Becker dealer in Australia: SoundLab Group

Here is the US information (for comparison).

We now have a Telephone power cable, 5001.524-276. This allows power/phone mute to the existing car wires without any cutting. The price is $5.00 (list). 

OEM Becker Radio removal keys, BNA-1184.989 ($1.76 set) Plus $5.00 small order handling fee

To add additional amplifiers use low-level audio adapter, 1185.640-276 ($16.60).. 

Speaker/power plug is 1163.736-276 ( $14.00) 

Phone mute/Aux audio-in/Tel audio-in/Removal keys in one kit is, 1319.116-276 ($16.40) 

                                To order please call our parts department at (888) 423-3537 x1209

Thanks for the info on the Becker wiring loom. I must admit I have yet to hit the glove box removal instructions. Plenty instructions on how to destroy the dash trim but nothing on removing the glove box. I will keep searching I am sure I will find it.

Once again you come to the rescue - even in a foreign country

One of our local 2003 Boxster owners just replaced the 3 trim pieces without destroying them. He removed the glove box and was able to get to the T10 screws for the long piece. He removed the steering wheel and the trim plate under the instrument cluster to get to the back of the 2 small pieces.

That is what I am hoping to achieve Tool Pants. I will perform the large piece first and then look at replacing the other 2 smaller pieces. Depending on how adventurous I am feeling I might even do it myself.

Once again thanks to all and their helpful information
