Re: (97GLTbrick)

With your 2004<p>Your going to need a few adaptors<p>You'll lose your center channel unless you do some creative wiring with the amplifier that is the new headunit.<p>The Volvo Factory amp will need an adaptor to power all the door/rear speakers. Center channel will be dead.<p>You will need adaptors to use your factory steeering wheel control. <p>Parzan audio carries them, they are made by Dietz.
