    Hi. Got a 2022 VNL 740. I bought a stereo system and need to remove some trim panels to run wires. I'm looking for info on how to remove them properly so I don't damage them and they go back on securely. Anyone have experience with this? Does the service manual have instructions with diagrams on how to remove? If so, do you know where I could download it? The panels with the blue dots are the ones I'd like to remove. For the door, I'm not sure if I'd need to remove the whole door panel or just the speaker grill. Thanks.

    Whats wrong with stereo in new volvo . Unless you need that bass so bad to keep you awake . I am under impression that most new vehicles have decent sound systems .

    All new trucks all you have to do is just pull, hard.

    This is the best of what I can remember. Volvos are pretty forgiving with the trim. It takes a moderate amount of force to pull the trim off.

    What's wrong with it? It sucks. Most new vehicles (commercial and passenger) come with mediocre sound systems at best... Unless you pay for upgrades from the factory, which you should never do, because you can get better for less money by buying aftermarket. In this truck, much like any other stock vehicle, there is NO bass what so ever, and the even the mids/highs don't sound very good. I don't need bass to keep me awake, just so there is a well balanced sound that sounds good.
