Remove the shifter knob, then remove the silver piece with the P, R, N, D markings on it (this piece is surrounded by a black rubber which will also come off with it). then pry between the woodgrain piece and the trim around it by pushing the woodgrain piece upward using a flathead or something that will not scratch the wood. Then, to get a wider opening, pry at the trim around the wood by pulling it upward starting by the side near the cupholder, everything should come apart like a puzzle

How do i install a sound system into a 1986 honda accord?


is there a factory radio already installed or just a cover plate, if there is a cover plate use a very small screwdriver to pop the plate out (it ha two clips) you can also use a small pry tool); if there is a factory radio installed you must go under dash behind radio with a 8mm 1/4 inch drive socket with extension and remove the two screws out of the radio ,rear part of radio; if there is a center console you must remove the 2- 4 side screws and two screws in the armrest section inside or on the rear side of the console, slide it back and remove console then the radio. sometimes you have to remove the ash tray pull out; and remove the three screws in the black metal area of the ash tray mount. to remove the radio push it out from behind and it will pop right out. if your putting in an aftermarket radio not a honda radio; you can buy an electrical adapter from pep boys or other automotive supply house to attach to your wiring harness so you do not have to cut any wires. usually honda places a speaker and wiring diagram on their radios . good luck

1996 Honda Accord. Want to replace radio. How to access?


Start with the rear console. Two screws on the sides, then open the console and pry up the plate in the bottom.   Remove the screws under the plate.  Pull emergency brake lever. Remove cup holder insert. Three more screws to remove. Now the console will come out when you lift it and pull it back out of the clips. Next remove the ashtray. One screw behind the ash tray two more for the cover. Disconnect wires. the stereo is accessible.

How to change the air filter in my 2002 Lexus ES? I bought one and now I don't know where it goes. The owner manuals don't show either.


The engine air filter in a 2002 lexus ES300 is located in a black box behind the battery. It should have a thick air hose connecting to it which is the air intake. Open the two 10 millimeter bolts holding it together and open it and replace the filter.

Cigarette lighter stopped working


I had the same problem on my '97. I ended up taking out the lighter when I was replacing the LCD on the radio, only to find that somehow it had become disconnected. Not sure how it happened but it might be worth checking out to see if it wiggled loose. To get to the lighter: 1) Prior up the cover by the shifter (the one that also goes back to the seat heater). It is connected with snaps so pry slowly. 2) Once the panel is removed you will see screws that are holding in the ash tray/cig lighter. Unscrew those and the whole lighter/ash tray can be pulled out. It is also held in by snaps on the top.
