Question about 2001 Volvo S60
Can any one tell me how to remove radio as i wish to replace with different
With the key in position two, pull the gear selector to the lowest gear.
With a bone too, or a screw driver, carefully pry up on the trim around the gear selector (the side closest to the center console trim, not the aluminum looking plastic directly around the selector).
Underneath there are four clips that hold the aluminum looking trim to the plastic trim. Unclip those and carefully separate it. The clips should be one on each four corners.
If you have the pen holder directly underneath the radio, that can be easily removed by gently prying on it to release it.
Now there should be about a set of 2 (4 total) Torx 25 screws. Remove the two that hold the whole center console together.
Pull the bottom section out towards you about half an inch and pry downward. The top of the assembly should have a slot that goes to the dash to hold the top section in.
Put that assembly off to the side before you disconnect any connectors and put the vehicle in park.
Once in park, take the key out. Most important or else you'll set codes and have to bring it to the dealership to have them erased.
Now disconnect the connectors on the back.
If you have the fiberoptics cables on there...you may need to get "bridges" for them so you can complete the fiberoptic circuit of the MOST system.
Disassembly of the stereo assembly should be pretty straight forward after that. A few clips for the trim piece around the assembly, a few Torx screw removals and the stereo should pop right out.
Any other questions...feel free to ask.
Hope this helps.
