    I need to replace the stereo in my '14 Tacoma because of a broken screen. It's a 57090. Will this be a simple take out/drop in, or is there something about software associated with a specific car/radio? I found a 57090 on e-bay for $317.

    Also, how do you get that trim plate off?

    Just remove the old radio and install the new one. Software is contained within the various radios; the truck itself does not know the difference. I upgraded my 2014 to an HD radio, then to an HD Nav radio with no problems.

    $317 would go a long way to picking up a nice aftermarket setup from some place like Crutchfield

    Thanks Mshultz. He didn't say how to get the trim plate off, so you can re-use it. Is it obvious? CW Bill, yes, I'd love to have an aftermarket system, but the guy I spoke to from Crutchfield said that he couldn't guarantee what features would be available with their system. Plus, that was about 500 bucks, and money is tight right now...however, if you or anyone else can suggest a system that keeps the important features of the factory system, and costs around 3-400, I'm listening.

    The trim plate attaches to the radio with 2 screws at the bottom and 2 plastic push pins in the middle. You can probably find replacement plastic pins at an auto parts store if they break.

    Since you have access to the back of the pins, I've been wondering if you could slip heat shrink tubing over the barbs. This might allow you to remove them without damage.

    Ahh, thanks. Now I know what to expect - a hassle. Are the pins located such that you may be able to squeeze the barbs and pull the plate, allowing the barbs to slip back into the hole?

    They tend to bulge in another direction when you squeeze them.

    So I got this done. The new radio looks - new! Like it came out of a brand new truck yesterday. Old radio came out without too much struggle, you do have to be insistent when you pry the heater knob panel and the radio out, it feels like you're going to break them. Yeah, those push pins...what a PITA. Couldn't save them. I even took the brackets off the old radio for better access and made a brass sleeve to compress the barbs. No joy. Finally had to cut them, I sided on saving those severely flimsy ears that are on the trim panel. Most of the time it took to do this job was chasing around to find some new push pins that fit. Finally settled on some GM ones that were slightly too long, I clipped the end off. After that, it went back together slick as snot on a doorknob. Works great!

    Here's a thought; There are 2 units that those side brackets hold together. I assume the smaller one on the bottom is the Sirius unit? Did I just screw up by not re-using the one that came with the truck? The Sirius unit is tied to the truck, no? Or does it not matter which one is in there?

    Thanks much to everyone for all the help!
