So what if you had a 2013 dash and a 2010 center console, any trimming then?

You still need to trim the 4 pack trim, where you trim you dont see its the front end where it meets the dash first, see you cant raise the 4 pack trim as high as with the old radio face, so it will not go in if you dont trim to fix the trim.


1 more thing to fit it in with an auto car you will need to pull out 1/2 way the 2 parts on the trim, or they will scratch the auto shifter trim.

Yes, that's a tighter fit than when it came out. Took a little pressure since it has to clear the bottom of the traction control button and lighter socket, since the lighter socket was deeper, I swung it to the right to clear it first, then all was good.

Is there any mainstream stores like RadioShack or autozone that carry the pins that are used in the onstar x2 harness because I managed to break the pin connected to the silver wire and need to find another

It's not likely that you'll find them locally. Either get more from GEN5DIY or order the following from your dealer: 13575548 This should be the connector with a lead wire on it. (I think you actually get a pack of 5)

So after watching the video, I actually took the cables out of the packaging and thought through the process, and was able to observe that the cable connectors are now color-correct for where they go. Maroon, grey, pink, blue, etc. - so don't mind the colors in the video or picture in the instruction for the connectors, just match up the colors and it will be good.

Installed and the radio works great, still working on getting the backup camera on the my link with the splitter to work. Instructions were great and easy to understand. Thanks

***I did not have to Dremel the piece behind the radio nor the 4 pack gauge cluster, everything fit perfectly.. I have a 2012 45th if that makes a difference.

Yes they are now color-correct for where they go, had 200 sets on order but did not come in on time for the peters install, so went with samples sets we had.

So, quick question. In the step d) where you mention hooking up a new lock/ unlock switch, since I have a 2012 with switches on the door this wouldn't apply to me, correct?

One other question (for now)- I have watch all of the videos and read the directions several times and it seems like a straightforward install. The one part I received and didn't see in the instructions is pictured below. What is this for? Where is it in the directions? I saw a matching female RCA plug in the wiring harness supplied, but I don't see any mention of this piece:



Any help?

That's got to be the roof connector that you'd need to split the video from the rearview mirror to the mylink. It's in the passenger side kick panel. Disconnect the harness, and the one supplied goes inline with it

Ok thanks! Maybe that piece is missing from the instructions since it's an optional piece? I assume when I remove the passenger side kick panel to remove the glove box I will see it down there?

Also, if this goes in the passenger kick panel, is the RCA plug long enough to reach the male connector in the harness to the MyLink?

I have the four gauge cluster I bought from gen5 with connector that goes in the same plug. Will my gauges still work after I plug this in? Will I have to plug this one to the one I have already? Making the connection of wires even longer.

On the written instructions, Step 6, it's listed as one of the parts required for that step, but you're right, the instructions don't cover it.

Yeah, you'll see the connector there behind the kick panel. there's only one connector that size.

I'd expect that the cable on the MyLink harness at the radio is long enough to reach this one, but I haven't measured.

On my car I didn't have to dremel anything and we were comparing manufacturing dates for our 45th's. Mine was built on 3/12, his on 8/11.

If I'm thinking of getting a 4 gauge cluster could I just grab one from 2013-2014 to avoid the modification process?
