I was told by the dealer that both units would have to be removed and sent to Clarion and that the "marriage" didn't apply to this vehicle (2000). If the dealer is correct what are my options and what are they if the dealer is wrong? It would seem the cost of removing everything and sending it to Clarion could be costly. Any ideas on what my option for replacing the unit? Thanks for all of your help. Bob
