when we have right removal tools.However when we want to mount it,it become  a little complex when we

are making cables connection.You can learn it well by viewing some messages from the Internet,for example:

yourself

All operations for KIA Ceed radio dvd installtion has been showed,if you would like to try it by yourself,you can do it when you are sure that it is safe and you have grasped above 9 steps well.

When you are driving your Kia Ceed with a new radio,you will find that some convenient functions will be up to you,driving can be an interesting thing especially when you are on a trip with your family or friends.What an enviable thing, isn’t it?

But wherever you go, remember safety must be the most pivotal,so do not stare at the video or forget something because you are lost in beautiful music,that can be dangerous.

I have also written another essay which is about KIA Sportage aftermarket gps installation,if you or you know someone who are also going to install a new head unit for his Kia Sorento,then you can go to and have a look at it.Actually you will find the principles of operations are almost same in a lot of places.

And if you are finding another kind of stereo or something in this aspect,you can go to   and have a search there,wish you good luck.
