Hi. I took some photos while removing and reinstalling the radio unit. They are on my photo gallery with some notes in the link below.

I don't want to derail the thread with my own issue but I should add a note that I think might help others diagnose their own radio problems:

Simple R&R helped but didn't fix my particular problem. (radio randomly cuts out and disappears from nav console but power light stays on) I noticed that I could force the radio to show up on the nav console if I entered service mode. From service mode, just arrow over a few times to the radio reception stats screen and then the radio kicks in. You can press the preset buttons to change stations. YMMV
