Stereo removal help 1995 dodge caravan

i just did this! Take the plastic grid on your dash board (right in front of the information center above th steering wheel) off. You have to pry it with a lever (sqrew driver for instance.) You will see sqrews to unsqrew. then continue to pop off each panel on your dash board, starting with the one closest to your windshield. You will continue to uncover sqrews to be unsqrewed. When you pry and pop the panels off it is a little scary because it takes a bit of pressure. Next pop off the plastic panel around your stereo/dash board. I hope this helps! if you find a stereo color diagram for the stock radio, let me know because thats what i am trying to solve now!

How do i take the dashboard off to install a aftermarket car stereo?

You don't have to remove the whole dash. Just the part around the system. Should just pop out with a little pressure but check to make sure there are no screws on the front. I would go look at mine for you but I'm out of state right now.

you should'nt have to take out the whole dash. a few screws on the molding that surrounds the cd player and you should pull the casing out. The moulding goes from the radio to the dash, it's that big, but thats about all you have to mess with, other than replacing the stereo.

03 Chevy Cavalier Replace Factory Stereo

I am currently in the process of putting in a new stereo in my 03 cavalier. It's actually quite a process but can be done with some patience. I really don't have the time for a highly detailed explanation but here is the outline. First pull the airbag fuse just in case, you'll see why. The dashboard will have to come out first. It all starts with the screw located inside the drivers side fuse box area. This will allow the dashboard to be gently pryed up and popped out, there are just clips holding. Keep an eye out for areas that are not coming up easily, there will probably be screws to take care of. (There are some in the glove box.) From here it's pretty self explanatory. The trim around the stereo must come out. Then the stereo. Not too difficult. You'll need a warning chime replacement harness. I used SCHOSHE #GMLAN2SR. You'll probably need a dash install kit depending on the size stereo you go with. You'll also need to wire the stereo to a switched source of power(12V ignition, orange). Have fun...

How do you remove a car stereo from a 2005 Nissan Altima?

I just did it... the panel below the stereo pops of first. (the one with the three a/c control knobs). remove the 4 screws. Lift the trim around the stereo from bottom to top. then you will see the mounting brackets and take it from there.

What do i have to do to remove my stereo in my 2002 sunfire?

Open the glove box door. Let it drop all the way down by flexing the small plastic that stops it from falling to the side.

To the left side of the glove box front, you will find a screw (or two) which holds the molding around the radio together. Remove these screws, then pull off the molding. Once you have removed the molding, you will find a screw on opposite sides of the radio. These hold the radio bracket to the dash board. Take these out and slide the radio forward. There will be a connector which needs carefully removed from the rear of the radio. The antenna then should be unplugged as well. After wards, the radio will slide right out. You will install a new radio from the reverse.

gently pull of the moulding around the top ac vents and control knobs, then yes, use a flat head screw driver to pry at the feathered mount at the bottom of the stereo. careful not to pull to hard the ac/heat controls could disconect. pain in the *** to put back.
