GMRC-01 is the harness my sources are calling for. It is the digital interface from metra.

Not too hard to work on eh! They are a painin the butt. You need to take almost the entire dash off to get to the radio. Take the sunvisors and all the windshield trim off. Take the kick panels and underdash panels off side to side. Take glove box out. Take off rings around the climate controls and trim along middle of dash. Disable and remove passenger side air bag. Remove the top of the dash. Then remove panel covering radio. Done correctly it can take 1/2 hour to do. This is GM's worst dash to get the radio out of.

All I was saying is that it takes more than a few minutes to do. Cavaliers can be done in about 5 minutes. A SSR takes a lot longer than that, unless you don't care about the fit and finish. I do. After installing for 28 years I think I've got the hang of it. The definition of hard work = installing 3 &1/2 inch speakers in the factory locations in a 1980 Monte Carlo. Thats hard work and the reason its nice to have an apprentice.

Wow Sparkie  you've been installing as long as I have been breathingchevy ssr radio removal -- posted image.. Well I have only had the pleasure of installing as h.u. in one of these and it took quite a bit of time, but it  looked flawless when done. My advice is to put aside a saturday afternoon and take your time.....

i wouldnt argue about the jeep. you know we are all mechanics too. i believe one must be a mechanic to be an installer. also, it could be considered a pain in the ahole because it might be more intimidating being so much on a newer 50,000 dollar truck. by the way, how much is an 06 ssr?
do i have to be careful around the airbag? any tips....
