    Default Equinox stereo replacement / Ipod

    I am very disappointed with the factory 6 disk stereo. It's sound quality is pretty low and the CD changer will hang up on burned CDs. Sometimes for a second or two sometimes for a week. I would like to replace the entire system but I know there are some need parts. Has anyone done the factory to aftermarket stereo switch? I have an Ipod and would like at a minimum install an inline FM signal adapter or possibly replace the entire stereo.

    I am curious how do I get the dash apart?
    Any special tools needed?
    Are there any inline adapters for the vehicle chimes that work better than others?
    Any suggestions?

    thanks for the diagram, I thought there was a special tool for removal.
