How to remove a non factory radio from the dash of a 1996 ford f 350?


Not having any information on how it was installed, make or model of radio, I can't be of much help. You need to provide more information on what you've done so far.

I have c-class 200K 2001, classic, i would to change radio to new one to have DVD/MP3/GPS and bluetooth ....what i have to do


its not to hard if you have basic skills or better you must remove the old stereo from car which can mean certain parts of the dash will have to come out usually the surround around the stereo you may also need a special tool to get the old stereo out of the dash then you will have to find a wire diagram off the factory stereo so you can wire the factory speakers up to your head unit also you will need to mount the new stereo to the dash which is simple a mount frame should be in the new head unit box

How to install a radio in a 1999 GTI


If it's a OEM unit you'll need a radio key tool similar to this

so you can pull the old unit out and replace it with another OEM unit.
Before removing any power connection (batt, couplings and connectors) from your vehicle, you must have your radio code in case you need to unlock it from safe mode.

Replacing it with an aftermarket unit calls for a different procedure. This will involve in removing most of the panels from the dashboard. You will need a torx bit to remove the screws from the dash. It will also involve in removing the shifter console cover out of the way so the radio carrier would be accessible from below.
Remove the 2 side covers fro m the dash (fuse cover), a couple of screws for the drivers kick panel will be visible.
Remove the headlight switch assembly by pushing the rotary switch in and turned to the left, This will release the lock and you can pull the assembly out to un-hook the connection from behind.
Remove the driver side kick panel, the glove box with the light connection behind it and the two side panels from the radio carrier.
You can access the screws holding the carrier from the dash and you can mount your new unit into the carrier using the new hardware from you new head unit. You can buy the adapter from Fry's Electronics specific for your radio to connect your unit with the original radio harness,

Replace factory radio on 2002 yukon xl


all you gotta do is carfully pry the dash panel off (prying from the far left end is easiest) completely remove panel. then there are 2 clips that hold the factory sterio in place. push on the both clips while pulling the radio out. simply disconnect the wiring harness from the back of the radio. using an adapter avaliable at your local radio shop (scosche p/n gm02, mdarb and gm1483b) wiring harness, dash install kit, and antenna adapter. then simply match the colors on the new radio's harness to the adapter harness, crimping each connection with a "but plug". then simply follow the instructions included with the dash install kit to assemble the kit.connect the antenna adapter to radio, plug in all cables. test to see if everything works properly before the final install. install sterio into dash install kit, re installing kit where origional radio was. then simply put the panel back in its place by firmly pushing on it untill it snaps into place. then enjoy your new radio!

Removing front and back speakers in 1991 Grand Am....


There is a lot involved in replacing these speakers. You should also know that the original factory speakers are 10 ohm speakers. This means that if you replace them with new speakers (most of which are 4 ohm) you run the risk of damaging the stereo, the speakers, or both. This can also cause a potential fire hazard in your car. If you want new speakers, you really should look at installing a new stereo as well.

To get to the back speakers, you will need to remove 2 bolts located under the front edge of the rear seat (bottom). After you remove the bottom, you will need to remove the rear seat (back). This involves removing the bolts that hold down the rear seat belts, which is a large sized torx bit (T-45, T-47, or T-50... Don't remember which). After removing these, lift straight up on the seat back to remove. Now remove the deck brake light housing, and the bracket that holds it. Now the deck cover can be removed. Be careful not to bend it too much getting it out from under the side trim on both sides.

For the front speakers, you must disassemble a good portion of the dash. Remove the screw holding the light switch and the wiper switch housings. This screw is underneath each housing. Once removed, there are dash mounting screws behind them. These screws (and many of the other dash screws) are a smaller torx-bit (T-10 or T-15, don't remember which). Sometimes they use a 7mm bolt. There is a cover panel just above the glove box. This panel is held on with 2 screws located in the glove box. After removing this panel, you will find 2 or 3 bolts holding on the dash. Last but not least, you will find 2 bolts inside each of the defroster vent grilles. These grilles just snap out for easier access to the bolts.
