I don't want to buy those DIN keys 'cause I've seen several people on here criticize them greatly.
I've also seen people say that it's possible to take them out by laying down on the driver and passenger sides and reaching up and releasing the stereo by hand, but I can't figure it out by myself.
D:
Can someone help with general instructions?

The things is, you really can't get a feel for it until you get it out with the DIN keys the first time. At least it was that way for me. You just have to feel for them, then you you push the clip IN TOWARDS the radio, then push that side out a little, not all the way. Then the same to the other side and push it out then.

Ah, that's what I feared.
I'll try to locate the clips by just feeling for them.
Worse case scenario, I can't do it and just buy the DIN keys.
:p
How much do they cost, on average?

Ah, nevermind!
I did it!
:D
But does anyone know if it's possible to connect an RCA cable to the radio?
'Cause I have a 3.5mm audio jack that changes into those red and white plugs.

Honestly... You can bend some coat hangers and it should work just fine

Here's how to install an aux input (instructions are for a '96-'99, but 2000-2007 is the same):

Or you can get a cheap amp and install that inline with the factory amp. Or if you want to spend some money and do it right you can buy a device that plugs into the factory CD changer port.
