aTm Beaner yeah, this must have been the easiest AUX adapter install. I just installed an iPhone/iPod RCA adapter made by Soundgate.

it works great and I was able to get it for around $70 via HiFiSoundConnection.

that's what i always do. you can get the bottom half un-clipped by just pushing it with your fingers, then i take a flat head wrapped in tape and pry the top two corners out very carefully.

2005 Stock HU Removal

Sorry if this is old news, but I went to the How-To section and couldn't find anything on removing a 2005 stock head unit, so i googled around and found this picture. Would this be pretty accurate?
