This isn't hard, you just need to breath deeply and take courage.

Be aware that the centre moulding where the radio is extends ove the steering wheel and the whole thing needs to come out. There are screws under the switches that release this panel and the panel under the wheel. Remove them all. Note the cables for the instrument lights and speaker.

Note the grommet around the ignition switch. You have to work this with a screwdriver so the top panel can come forward. This grommet will pull off but I bet you can't do it before the panel comes off. Do it before you put it back.

The panel is click-fit into the centre console. You can lever it off with a paint scraper. Note the lighter wiring.

Once the panel is off the radio is held in by 4xcrosshead screws, just looking at you.

Needless to say, the brackets are exclusively Toyota and fitting a new third party radio is not so easy. Your best bet for a replacement is a good one out of a wreck of the same vintage. It will go straight in and plug up. I got a Camry one. It has security coding but fortunately it was never activated. If the radio is coded make sure you get the full details and provenance. You may need to get it reset by the dealer.

Good luck

Toyota corolla radio problem - buttons wont work


More than likely the only thing you can do for this situation is to replace this radio. If you have an extended warrenty see if this is covered. Otherwise you may just have to replace the radio. I would say if you want something newer and a little more stylish, look into getting an aftermarket radio installed. Or if you prefer to stay with an oem radio, then check your local salvage yards for prices on an oem radio for your vehicle and also take a look on eBay. eBay would most likely be the cheapest. If you do not know how to install it yourself then have the dealer do it for you or an audio shop. That way you only pay for labor charge and not labor and parts. Call both places and see who will do it for the best price. It's a simple task for either of them and they will both do it just as good. Hope this helps, good luck!

Remove the radio from 1997 Toyota Corolla


i have a 97 corolla as well, and i've changed the radio out several times on my own. if you take a small screwdriver and stick it in between the panel that goes around the around the area where the radio is, u should be able to pry it off relatively easy. just be sure to remove the sliders off the AC controls before you do. after you pop that panel off, you just have to disconnect the wiring harnesses going to the clock, hazard lights, rear defroster, and AC button. the radio is bolted in there with a mounting bracket, so you'll have to unscrew that as well. you'll need to unscrew that bracket from the radio you have in there, and mount it to the one you wanna install....hopefully this helps you out. it sounds harder than it really is.
