Support the unit in one hand to remove tension from the wiring harness. Pinch the multi-wire connector and pull away from the unit to disconnect. Note the location and orientation of your RCA cables to aid in re-installation.  It is usually most useful to take a picture of the cables in place before removal.

That does not look like the dash on my 2007 Ram 1500 SLT Quad Cab.

nor does it look like the dash of a 2008 RAM 1500 SLT Quad Cab either

Don - Reply

This should be listed for Ram 1500 2002-2005 years. The 2500/3500 kept this dash longer, until 2006.

It looks exactly like my 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Quad Cab 4.7 Liter V8.
