My only suggestion to you and anyone else with the S model who is interested in this "newerstone" unit is to first look at the back of your stock stereo and see how many hookups you have for the stock antenna. I have two, as pictured a few posts back. As this is one of my major qualms about this unit; it only came with one hook up for the antenna which left me with very poor radio reception. And if you have two connections like I do, confirm with the seller prior to purchasing, that they have two antenna hookups supplied with the unit.

To look at the back of the unit is only 6 screws(small torx bit). And can be done in about two minutes (literally).

Pull this tab with your fingers.

Unscrew the two screws underneath and gently pull outward on the bottom of the facia.

Undo one clip^(controls the lock/unlock/hazard and other facia buttons) and the whole facia comes off.

Now (your S model may be a tad different) unscrew these four screws.

Then give the unit a little tug. And you should be able to see the antenna plugs.
