First, how to remove your radio:
Subaru's web site has free documents for installing accessories. The ones for satellite radio receivers, subwoofers, and iPod Interfaces include the procedure to remove and re-install the stock HU. Find one that covers your model and year. Link: Subaru Technical Information System (choose Publication Type "Accessory Installation Guide")
For information about OEM head units, you can download Subaru's owner's manuals free here:
