Removing the Dash Trim

Removing the dashboard trim in front of the MyGig unit is unique for each vehicle. The trim piece is released with a plastic pry tool or your finger-tips, but it may help to have an illustration of the physical boundary of the piece being removed. If you do a Google search you will find YouTube videos and Web Sites to show you how to pull the MyGig trim for your car.

Removing the MyGig unit

Important    Before you pull the MyGig unit from your dash, improvise temporary support just below the MyGig opening in the dashboard. You can then leave all the cables connected to the MyGig unit when you pull it out. This saves a lot of time, avoids breaking something and allows for testing before you reinstall your Mygig system.

On the Jeep below it only takes a couple of big folded beach towels. On your car it may take more effort to get the height, but this prep item will still save time and avoid connector problems.

Car Battery Disconnected

The MyGig system is always powered . . . even when the ignition is OFF. Your car battery should be disconnected when you remove or install the Hard Drive.
