So far the Toyota Prius was one of the most widely sold hybrid vehicles on the market. The original Toyota Prius Radio is low-grade. When you find the need to install a new aftermarket unit instead of your factory stereo, you can trust the replacement duties to an audio technician at an aftermarket retailer or you can swap the old stereo for a new one yourself and save the cost of labor. If your car have the same dashboard with this car, you can follow the instructions bellow.
Tools you’ll need
1）Trim panel removal tool
4）10-millimeter socket wrench
5）Wiring harness adapter
