Hi guys,

In the GLS all you have to do is put your fingers in underneath the black facia near the seatbelt warning and pull out gently. The facia is only held on by clips. Pretty sure the GLX would be the same.

I'm struggling at the moment. Can pop the headunit fascia loose but can't seem to get it all off. Tried locating the cables but can't seem to find it. Any live pictures, photos or other advice

Stick your head in the drivers footwell and look up and towards the centre whilst turning the HVAC knobs. You should be able to see the cables and where they connect to the HVAC box. There is two cables on one side and one on the other. (behind the glovebox)

Attempting this project tomorrow.. installing a Sony XAV AX-100 media unit w/ aerpro facia into a stock MQ GLX+. Should be easy enough hopefully.

Found a few vids that demonstrate Mitsubishi curent way of removing the front console panel on their other vehicles, that I assume are similar to Triton useful here :

EDIT : Service Manual MQ 2016 2017 - http://mmc-manuals.ru/manuals/l200_v/on ... dex_M1.htm

Will document my process as thoroughly as possible & report back soon :D

I pulled the trim/fascia off last weekend to get to the back of the 12v cig lighter socket.
It just pulls off, it's clips. I used a flat plastic scraper as a spudger you can get from bunnings.
Put it under the edges at the bottom to get both sides out a bit then just pulled the whole thing off, vents and all.
It was a lot easier than I thought it would be.

Rotary dials or climate control though? I think the climate control models are much easier to pull apart!

One would think that removing the current '17 model stereo would be similar to everything listed in this thread yeah?

Not that I want to replace the unit (looking forward to trying Android Auto), but in the event I want to add an amplifier and aftermarket speakers, I'm pretty sure the current method is to get some kind of plugin inline harness that extracts the RCA signal from a factory unit. At least, I watched a video of a couple of guys putting a slimline underseat subwoofer in an Amarok and that's what they did.

Going by the most recent link, the current unit (in GLS model anyway) is a full touchscreen and looks mostly like the <Vehicles with display audio> model.

If I get around to doing it, I'll report back here.
