There are 2 small holes on the top of the radio. You have to slip 2 pins in the holes and then the radio slides out. Very easy to do but kind of tricky because you have to do both together. It works great if you have a 3rd hand. I find coter pins work the best. Good luck.

How do you remove radio, from my 2001 dodge neon, that just went dead, for no reason. I replaced the fuse on the side of dash board. Still nothing.


Safety Precautions
  • Before removing the stereo or any other electrical component, it is vital that you first disconnect the grounding cable from the Neon's battery. The grounding cable connects the battery to the frame or chassis of the vehicle.

    Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to loosen the grounding cable's camp from the negative battery lead. Make sure to rest the clamp away from the negative lead post until the removal is complete.
  • Remove the Dash Trim Panel
  • The dash trim panel that surrounds the Neon stereo needs to be removed to access the stereo. The panel contains, but is not connected to, the climate control knobs on the dashboard.

    Grab the panel at the bottom corners and pry it from the dash. You will likely be able to remove the panel without the assistance of a trim pry tool, but if you are having difficulty removing the panel by hand, wrap a thin cloth around a trim panel removal tool or flat head screwdriver to remove the panel.

    Once the lower edge of the panel is relieved from the panel, you can work your hands (or flat pry tool) around the perimeter to separate the remaining edges.

    Since the panel is not connected to the climate control knobs, you will not need to disconnect the wiring to the knobs. The panel, once free, can be set aside until you replace the stereo.
  • Remove the Stereo
  • The Neon stereo deck is held into the stereo mounting bracket by 10 millimeter bolts on either side of the radio. Remove the bolts and store them in the ashtray for safe-keeping.

    Pull the stereo from the dock. The unit will easily slide from the mounting bracket with an even pull from the left and right of the stereo. Pull the stereo far enough to reach the wiring on the rear of the radio.

    The wiring to the stereo includes the antenna, the power supply and the speaker wires. There may also be patch cables connected if an amplifier is connected to your stereo system. Pull the cables from the stereo. The antenna and power supply are single cables. The speaker wires (and patch cables) will be grouped by wire binders. The plastic wire binders should be pulled as a unit. Do not pull the wires themselves.

    Once the wiring has been disconnected from the stereo, the unit will be completely free from the Neon.

    If you plan to operate the vehicle before installing a new stereo or re-installing the factory deck; reconnect the grounding cable to the negative battery lead. Otherwise, leave the cable away from the negative lead until all of your work is completed.

    How does the cd player stereo come out?


    Remove the two end panels on the dash. These are the panels that are located on either end of the dashboard. Place a rag over the tip of a flat tip screwdriver and wedge the tip behind the panel. Then pry the end panel off the dash. Do this for both panels.Remove the nine screws holding the glove box in place. Remove the two screws under the side panel on the passenger side (removed in step 1), four inside the glove box, two under the glove box, and one in the bottom left corner of the glove box (you can only access it after removing all of the other screws and extending the glove box down beyond what is normally allowed with the other screws in). Remove the screws holding the dash on under the steering wheel. Remove the two under the panel on the driver's side panel (removed in step 1), three on the underside of the dash, one on either side of the steering column, and one near the bezel covering the stereo.Pull the dash off from around the stereo controls.Remove the clip and wiring for the hazard switch using a flat tip screwdriver.Remove the six screws holding the HVAC unit and stereo unit in place and pull the stereo straight out of the dash. Unplug the electrical connection from the back of the stereo.

    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 remove the factory stereo surround without breaking it - 2006 model accent?



    All new cars are alike and use snaps and clips to hold everything together. Most likly you can remove the trim around the in dash radio unit with a thin metal tool. They have special tools at the car dealer for this. I know with the older model hyundai's there are two clips at the bottom of the front panel where the cigarette lighter thing is. Once you do find a way to remove the front panel there most likly are screws holding the radio unit in. I myself am about to remove my radio unit but I am just gonna stop in to my dealer and see what tool to use.

    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.
