I removed the dome light and coat hangars above the back window
Poke a screwdriver under the hook to depress the release, rotate 90 degrees, and remove....
Or do what I did... twist the snot out of them and the tabs will break, then reinstall them and the next time you order Toyota parts, order replacements
This will free the rear of the headliner.
Pull the weather stripping away from the top of the door(s).
Remove the A-pillar cover. Remove the B pillar cover. Remove the visor.
This will free the edge of the headliner
I ran mine down the passenger side, because I mounted my Sirius receiver behind the passenger kick panel, and the area behind the glove box is fairly uncluttered so it was easy to run the GPS antenna and harness for the Sirius receiver.
My hands and arms are skinny, so I am able to reach into the stereo opening, poke around a bit, and "shake hands with myself" with the other arm reaching in through the glove box.
WAY easier than routing things around on the cluster side of the dash with the brake/wheel/clutch and other moving parts to avoid.
