A look inside the Crutchfield MasterSheet™
Vehicle-specific instructions for removing your car stereo and speakers
The Crutchfield MasterSheet™ is a set of vehicle-specific instructions that shows you how to remove the stereo and speakers in your vehicle. In this video, we describe all of the work that goes into researching a vehicle and creating our instructions. What's more, this same vehicle info is used to fuel our massive vehicle database. When we tell you we know what fits — we really do.
Disassemble your dash with confidence
We have removal instructions for most, but not all, of the thousands of vehicles in our database. Our unique instructions are much more helpful than the generic installation instructions you'll get anywhere else. We include clear pictures of the vehicle and detailed instructions that are specifc and easy to understand.
Take a look ahead of time
These detailed instructions are free with your Crutchfield car stereo or speaker order. We even send it to you ahead of the order via email so that you can take a look at what's involved in the installation before your new car audio gear even arrives! It'll be included in your shipping confirmation email.
If you're not sure about the challenge of installing new car audio gear, you can also purchase these instructions first, so you can evaluate the task. Then, if you order your new gear within 60 days, we'll credit the cost of the instructions back to your order. Give us a shout (via phone, chat, or email) if you have any questions.

When you purchase a car stereo from Crutchfield, the instructions start here. They're step-by-step, screw by screw, clip by clip, taking the vehicle apart...we write the instructions, we've got measurements of the depth, the height, of the width of the cavities; we just try to get every piece of information we can for our customers as well as our techs and salespeople.
Typically we take between 300 and 700 pictures per day per vehicle. Wayne takes the pictures, I write the copy, it's proofed several times by multiple people so we know we've got it perfect. And all this information is put into our database so that online people can find what fits their vehicle, or what doesn't, and they'll be able to make a purchase without having to worry about it. And get photo by photo, screw by screw disassembly instructions. So a lot of people who have never done it before have the opportunity to do the work themselves.
You have any questions, give us a call at Crutchfield and we'll do our best to help you out.
