    • Remove all of the wires that are connected to both the circuit board and the underside of the top of the radio by pulling them where they are connected

    • This should include three sets of red and white wires, one set of white wires, one set of black wires, and two ribbon wires. Some cannot be disconnected from the top piece of the radio. Disconnect these plugs from the circuit board.
