  1. Pull open the cup holder.
  2. Pry the little panel above the cup holder off.
  3. There are two screws you can now see. Remove them.
  4. Now you want to carefully remove that panel. There are a few clips that will be removed as you remove that panel.
  5. You will now see some screws holding the radio itself in place. Remove them screws and the radio is ready to be pulled forward.

No, you will damage the face plate trying to do that. The dealer has a special tool that is unique to properly remove the unit.

How do i get the dash off to pull the old radio out

I'm not totally sure about the La Sabre, but there should be trim screws that hold the Dash face plate in place. There are three on the top portion of the face plate, and I think three on the bottom . The face plate extends from Light switch on left to radio on right. You may have to tilt the steering wheel column down to remove the face plate from around the steering wheel. From what I remember, the only thing that needs to be unplugged from the face plate is the plug for the rear defroster. Also, there are clips that hold the face plate in place. They just push in and out. Once the face plate is off, you can get to the radio mounting screws.

How i install car stereo in sonata

I have a 2004 Sonata and I'm currently in the process of installing a new stereo system. It's really easy to remove the original radio, you just have to remove the wooden panel face plate that surrounds the radio and air vents.

There are two notches that pretty much lock the face plate on. Right above the ash tray and the bottom of the wooden panel face plate, there's a tiny notch that you can push up on. There's another one that's hidden right above the cigarette lighter. Just push a flat-blade screw driver into both notches and gently push up. Once you lift that up, slowly pull it towards you, and keep prying it open starting from the bottom and moving towards the top. Make sure you pull on it carefully since the air vent ducts and wiring for the fan controls are attached to the face plate. I didn't have to remove the wiring for the fan controls, since I was able to easily move the entire face plate out of the way.

There are four screws that hold the radio in place. Keep in mind, these are screwed in by some machine, so I'd recommend using a power screw driving so you don't end up stripping the screws. Once you remove the four screws you can easily slide out the radio and unplug the wiring harness and antenna.

I searched a lot of places for a converter that would fit directly from the wiring harness in the car to the plug in my new radio, but to no avail. I'm at the point now that I'm going to cut off the original harness in the car and splice the wires, and connect them to the new radio's wires using a crimper. It's really not that hard, but I wanted to avoid cutting and splicing since I previously thought you would lose a lot of sound quality. It turns out, I spoke with several people who did the same thing, and as long as you crimp the wires together properly, you really don't lose out on the sound quality. It's a fairly easy task since all the wires are color-coded, so just match the wires, splice just enough for it to fit inside the caps, and crimp them together.

Then just plug in the adapter into your new radio, screw it in, and you're good to go! I wish there were more adapters out there, but it looks like more and more cars are changing their wiring harnesses, probably to discourage us do-it-yourselfers and pay some insane amount of money to some chump in a dealership garage. Don't be discouraged though! It's really not that hard!

Removal of radio

1. disconnect battery lead because of air bag sensors
2. pop off trim around shifter stick
3. remove center knob on the A/C panel. Remove phillips screw behind the knob. This is the only screw that has to come out (in addition to the 4 radio screws)
4. pull the a/c console forward. It's a tight fit but it's only held by clips. This was the most difficult part for me because I didn't want to break anything. It eventually released after pulling with constant pressure.
5. pull the air vent assembly off around the radio. This is also a tight fit, is only secured with clips. The radio face plate came off with this piece.
6. Remove 4 10mm bolts at bottom of radio. I used putty on a 10mm socket to help hold the bolt from falling down into the dashboard. Lose these bolts and you'll easily add several hours to the job trying to fish them out of the dashboard.

Hope this helps

1998 beetle radio buttons

The face plate buttons actually activate small buttons on a printed circuit board behind the face plate. When I removed the radio and then the face plate many small pieces of plastic fell from behind the face plate. These small plastic pieces align the face plate button to the printed circuit board buttons. My Beeetle is almost 10 1/2 years old so I imagine the plastic is just becoming brittle with age. I could not set the radio to FM, so I removed the face plate button and now slide a toothpick in the slot to toggle between FM1 & FM2. Not he best solution, but probably the most inexpensive one. I also made my on tool to remove the radio from a diagram found at:
