    My CD/radio on my 2007 Tundra needs replaced. Anyone know what to expect I'll have to pay for labor expenses?

    Since you are replacing an existing radio the labor should be an hour or less, I should think. I'm assuming they would be using your existing antenna and dc wiring. Before you pay someone, however, you might look into a self install. You might be surprised at how easy it is to do, particularly if you are only replacing your 'head' unit.

    It's a super simple install, hardest part is getting the dash apart to get to the head unit.

    If you can strip and use crimpers, you can do the install by yourself in an hour.

    Are you going to install the same model radio? Have you thought about upgrading?

    Here's a good link to show you how to remove your current unit. It really is very easy. There's a lot of other good info on that site if you poke around a bit.

    Also, if you're replacing it with an aftermarket unit, I'd suggest picking up a Toyota-specific wiring harness to make it an easier swapout. You can usually get them at your local car stereo store or find them on scamazon. Look for the 'Metra' brand, they make them for pretty much any modern vehicle.

    edit- If you really don't want to get into it yourself, most car audio shops will do the install for little or nothing if you buy the new unit from them. Just check around your area to see what they offer.

    And welcome to the forum!
