Question about 1996 Acura RL
Any way to find serial number of radio without pulling it?
Cannot find code anywhere in car that it is supposed to be, but if I can give Acura the radio serial number they will give me the code.
Also, if I have to pull the radio to get the serial number, how hard is it?
Any instructions I can follow?
Thanks for any advice.
You need to get the serial number off the sticker attached to the radio. It will require pulling apart your dash. You start at the air vents directly on top of the radio. These tend to be fragile so be carefull when pulling them. You use something skinny like a credit card to wedge between the vents and the trim to release them. Both vents will come directly out in one piece. From there twist off your shift knob. Remove the ashtray. Then pry up the wood trim of the center console. You will then have access to 4 or so screws that hold the radio and climate controls in place. The entire thing comes out as one piece as well. You should see your serial at that point.
