Are the 1997 Firebird Coupe tape deck radio and cd player radio the same size?

Will I need to make any adjustments/accomodations for size or wiring in the upgrade?

Thank you.

Both cd & tape deck are built into head unit. GM uses double Din format for it's head units. So either GM factory unit with a cd or a tape would fit in same slot. If you buy a head unit from a 96 or 97, it should have same wiring & connectors. If from other year firebird I can't say for sure. Neither can I say for other GM makes, years, & models.

 

As a resource, go to following link. There you will find 93-96 service manuals, as well as 98-00 manuals. Also 99-02 wiring diagrams. The manuals will have complete stereo wiring diagrams so you can check wiring compatibility. http://www.mediafire.../?40mfgeoe4ctti
