Removing Is200 Stock Head Unit

Recommended Posts

I have a Year 2000 model IS200 Sportz Lux

Ok i'm about to take it out to install a GROM Audio Aux/Ipod adaptor. (http://www.gromaudio.com/)

1) IS there a security on the Headunit? WHen i unplug it & then replug, will it ask me for a security code? I checked the manual there doesnt seem to be one?

2)& how do i take out the head unit? can i pro around the area of the head unit to get the front dash panel off or do i need to undo screws?

Hi playa69,

removing the IS stock headunit and fitting the Grom is very easy. Hando from the lexusownerclub UK wrote a fantastic walkthrough with pics. Please refer to the following link (register for free to see the pics)

Regarding you other question I can say, that the stock headunit has no security code. That means, you won't need a code afte unplugging the batttery. For intalling the Grom it is not nescessary to unplug the battery or remove the headunit complete. You only have to loosen the 4 relevant bolts and lift the stereo a little bit. Than grap behind and plug in the Grom connector in the relevant 12 pin harness. Thats it!!

Cheers from Berlin
