Hello, on most corolla's I have done,the black plastic shroud unscews from around the speedo/dash cluster and also includes the hazard/breakdown switch.The black plastic then comes out with stereo attached(usually)so be careful not the crack the plastic surround.In most cases you will not need to remove steering wheel but it will give more room to work with,if it is removed.Hope that helps.

How do you remove the stereo out of a 2008 nissan xterra?

Start by removing the whole dash'll have a better access to the radio from there. Continue removing the bolts/nuts from the bracket it's connected to...follow all wire connections, and retrace all steps your making. If you trace your steps you won't have a problem. Relatively simple procedure. 20-30 min job

How to install a radio in a 1999 GTI

If it's a OEM unit you'll need a radio key tool similar to this
so you can pull the old unit out and replace it with another OEM unit.
Before removing any power connection (batt, couplings and connectors) from your vehicle, you must have your radio code in case you need to unlock it from safe mode.

Replacing it with an aftermarket unit calls for a different procedure. This will involve in removing most of the panels from the dashboard. You will need a torx bit to remove the screws from the dash. It will also involve in removing the shifter console cover out of the way so the radio carrier would be accessible from below.
Remove the 2 side covers fro m the dash (fuse cover), a couple of screws for the drivers kick panel will be visible.
Remove the headlight switch assembly by pushing the rotary switch in and turned to the left, This will release the lock and you can pull the assembly out to un-hook the connection from behind.
Remove the driver side kick panel, the glove box with the light connection behind it and the two side panels from the radio carrier.
You can access the screws holding the carrier from the dash and you can mount your new unit into the carrier using the new hardware from you new head unit. You can buy the adapter from Fry's Electronics specific for your radio to connect your unit with the original radio harness,

How do I remove the fan switch to replace it on the dash under the radio?

Have your radio code before you pull it out with the right radio tool. This pull would involve removing this parts.
  1. Glove compartment
  2. Driver side panel
  3. Center top dash board
  4. Defrost switch carrier
  5. Radio unit
  6. Center lower half of dash
So I'd suggest go to your local public library and look for your car manual. It would be either Chiltons or Clymers manual, it's not as precise a Bentley VW Official factory repair manual. Yes it really involves taking all those parts out just to get to the rotary switch.

Removing/replacing a 2000 kia sportage 4x4 4 dr heater core

The heater is located under the dash board to the right and down from the radio. To remove and replace it you will have to remove the dash board down to the fire wall. Also, you will have to disconnect two hoses that connect up to it from the engine compartment. These are located in the back of the engine and down on the firewall about midway. Once you remove the dash board and locate the heater core you will be able to see the location of these two hoses. Removing the heater core is time consuming but it will save you about 700 dollars.
