Want to remove double din stereo in honda stream rn6 2007 rsz?

Don't know if this will help. but the radio is often clicked into place and needs a special tool to remove it from the dash.
See If there are two holes either side of the radio just above and below the tuning button and on the other side above and below the volume button.
If so, make a special tool using a wire coat hanger. Cut two lengths of about 30 cm (12 inches) long and bend them over double. Push the two ends of each into the holes in the radio until you feel the release pins lift, then gently pull the radio out.
Maybe it doesn't work for your radio, just hoping> . . .

I want code for my radio for my car volvo s40 2000

The only way to access this code is through your dealer, the stereo may have to be removed if the dealer cannot access the code using the vin (vehicle identification number) they will have to access the serial number located on the back of the stereo unit to get the code from Volvo. If you have the manual for the car look through it sometimes people write the stereo code on the inside cover.

On my 2002 Santa Fe, while playing the radio the speakers keep going on and off; but the cd player is fine. How would I gain access to replace the stereo?

to access the stereo you need to remove the dash piece around the control panel. after that you will see 2 or 4 screws holding in the stereo housing remove that and the stereo should slide right out. good luck.

I need to reconnect the radio to the antenna how do you get access to the back of the radio to plug in the antenna?

To gain access to the antena plug on 98 and later models the intrument cluster bezel has to be removed and the radio mounting screws removed in order to get to the connectors for the radio and antena connectors.TO remove the bezel you want to first remove the negative cable so that you dont accedentully set off the airbag system.Then you want to put the steering wheel in the lowest position and remove the screws in the bezel.Then with a flat screwdriver carefully pry the bezel the bezel out of the clips.Once this is done you will have access to the radio mounting screws.I hope this helps .

Acura 2000 radio unlock code

You have to do this: If you have jumped or replaced the battery at anytime this will happen. You have to get the serial number off the radio by removing it or partially taking it out to see the numbers on it try not to remove any cords. With the stereo out (to make sure you get the right number off of it) call an Acura dealership with the number and they will give you the another number to enter into the stereo and directions on how to punch the numbers in. Make sure while you have the stereo out you write the serial number down and keep it in a safe place also the number that the Acura dealership gives you because if you sell the car or if it happens again its easily accessible. Good Luck!

How do you remove the radio out of a honda civic

good day Sir, In order to gain access to the rear of the stereo for either connection to, or replacement of the factory unit, you must first remove the panel surrounding the (manual) gear stick. This should not be attempted with any form of 'level' to avoid damage to the dash finish. To remove the surround simply press fingers into the gear gaiter to gain purchase behind the panel and firmly 'pull' the panel toward you to disengage from the clips that hold it in place. The main panel above requires removal which involves location and loosening (not necessarily removal) of two hex headed screws approximately 6 inches (150mm) down from the head unit behind the panel, which screw the vertical metal plates holding the panel to the under dash mountings. To gain access to the screws push the two stops on the glove box inwards to allow the glove box to swing downwards. On the other side remove the small panel under the steering column Once loosened, the entire stereo/ heater control panel may be pulled toward you to disengage the clips that hold it in position. Reassembly is the reverse of removal, ensuring that the screw slots are properly engaged before final tightening of screws and reinstallation of gear stick surround.i hope this will help you

How would i take my fectory radio out of the car?

Radio & Tape Player

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. If so equipped, disable the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS).
  2. Remove the floor console and the front console panel. On 1984-85 cars, if access to the back of the radio may be gained through other means, such as removing the "pocket" from the console, the console need not be removed.

Radio mounting on 1990-93 Accords

4. Remove the ashtray and ashtray holder.
5. Remove the two screws holding the radio at the rear of the unit.
6. Carefully push the unit out the front of the dash. When access
is gained, disconnect the multi-pin connector and
the antenna cable from the unit. Remove the unit.

7. Reinstall in the reverse order. Take great care not to damage the dash trim and instrument visor. Make certain the connectors are firmly and squarely installed. If applicable, be sure to enable the SRS.

Where is the fuse for the radio in my 2005 grand vitara, i have found a fuse box but it's not in there

hi, usually the fuse for the radio is located on the back of the radio its going to be actually in the back of the radio or it will be an inline fuse running in the live wire coming from the back of the radio.

You will need to remove the radio slightly to gain access to the fuse in the back of it.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
