How do i take the radio out of my 98 xk8


1. Remove the black trim panel holding the cruise control and sport mode buttons from around the shifter. There are 4 clips holding the panel on: upper left, lower left upper right and lower right. Be careful, they break easily. Remove the wires from the buttons.
2. There are two brackets holding the wood panel down, one on each side of the shifter. Remove the two screws holding down each bracket. Be sure you note the orientation of the brackets - it will make reinstallation easier. Lift off the wood trim panel.
3. Under the wood trim you just removed, there are four bolts fastening the console to the car. Remove them.
4. Open the console lid. Remove the two screws fastening the latch strike plate. Again, make note of the positioning of the latch plate for reinstallation
5. Remove any other screws retaining the console compartment. Lift out the compartment liner. Close the console lid.
6. At the rear of the console is a trim cover. It is held by two tension clips. Just pull it off.
7. There are two bolts under the rear trim cover - remove them.
8. Remove the console.
9. Remove the screws holding the radio in the dashboard and pull the radio forward.
10. Remove the antenna wire and wiring harness connectors from the back of the radio.
11. Unbolt the ground wire from the back of the radio.

Reinstall in reverse order.

Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.

5. If equipped with manual window crank handles, pull off the handle cover, then remove the attaching screw.
6. Remove the trim cup behind (Explorer/Mountaineer) or around (Ranger) the door handle using a small prying tool. Retention nibs will flex for ease of removal.
7. If equipped with power accessories, use the notch at the lower end of the plate and pry the plate off. Remove the plate from the trim panel and pull the wiring harness from behind the panel. Disconnect the harness from the switches.
8. Remove any retaining screws uncovered by the removed trim pieces.
9. Using a flat wood spatula, insert it carefully behind the panel and slide it along to find the push-pins. When you encounter a pin, pry the pin outward. Do this until all the pins are out. NEVER PULL ON THE PANEL TO REMOVE THE PINS!
10. Lift slightly to disengage the panel from the flange at the top of the door.

... and remove it, then remove any uncovered screws

Pry out the trim panel-to-door frame retaining clips, then lift up and pull the panel free

  1. Disconnect the door courtesy lamp and remove the panel completely. Replace any damaged or bent attaching clips.
  2. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Light in heat regulator, how to change it, get in there without breaking something. Toyota carina e xli 1995

First you need to gently pry the plastic facia around the heater control out. Then remove the heater controller. Pry open the heater control tabs to enter it and there is the 3 bulbs. These bulbs are not run of the mill and your best bet is an actual car parts place to obtain them. I would change all three while you are in there.

    To replace the control module, you'll need to remove the front dash facia panel to access the virtical console modules. Four (4) phillips head screws must be removed to pop out the this panel.

    Stereo installation

    There are 2 types of wood trim on the s-class. One is a solid piece and the other is split in the middle. Remove the ac pushbutton panel, remove the shifter trim and remove the cigar lighter insert. If it is a solid panel, then you will unscrew two screws underneath where the ac panel was and I believe that with the ac panel out of the way you can reach in and pull the radio head out. If you need to remove more, then be very careful with the wood-very costly. If it is the split wood, look for a screw on the back of the cigar lighter wood trim(you've already removed the insert, right). You need a 1/4 in. ratchet with a screwdriver bit to access. You only need to loosen it up and slip it off. With the wood out of the way, look for two hidden screws on the inside front edge of the center console wood panel-right behind the wood cover you just removed. These will have to come out as well. Once they are out, pull up gently on the front of the rear wood panel(around the shifter) and slip out, There are likely two more screws underneath this panel. Take them out to remove upper wood trim.
