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.

How do I fix the clock display on my 1999 Pontiac Sunfire?


It appears to be that the radio clock display has malfunctioned, and is due for a replacement radio, which could be an aftermarket or oem radio, maybe found at a junk yard.

Tools required for oem replacement radio, torx keys set.

Before working on the radio or other electronics, disconnect the battery cables with 8mm wrench.

Replacing the oem radio is much easier, if you obtain oem radio, compared to aftermarket radio, due to being direct fit.

The radio is same for 1995 to 1999 Pontiac Sunfire and the Chevy Cavalier, regardless of sub models, such as SE,GT, VL,VLX,Z24. etc.

Parts needed for the the aftermarket radio install :Stereo assembly, stereo wiring harness adapter, radio antenna adapter, and dash install kit.wiring diagram for the wire colors / functions, along with tools, such as torx key set, screwdrivers,wire crimper, wire stripper, double ended wiring connectors, hair dryer.

The oem stereo removal video is for the 2000 to 2005 Sunfire / Cavalier, but are the same or very similar procedures.

How to take the radio out and replace it with a cd player


hello,depending on your particular vehicle,as there are a few different ways to remove the radio fitted as standard,but most are usually removed from the dashboard with a 'radio removal' tool,a specially formed thin hooks that are inserted in to the left and right of the radio through tiny slot's,and pressed outwards to unclip the 'locking' mechanism that prevents unwanted removal.fitting a cd player is quite easy,as you can normally get a standard ISO adapter that will fit in to your car's original wiring plug,and then you just simply plug the other end in to your cd player,but you may have to specify to a local radio stockist of your specific vehicle and year of manufacture,as there are quite a few different adapters available,failing that,an auto electrician can usually fit a car radio in about 15 minutes,often without a wiring diagram,so can be quite cost effective to enlist the work to a specialist.hope that helps, cheers.

How to replace 2002 radio light pont bonnieville and part number


Hello
I have repaired these burnt out display bulbs (3 of them) in GM Delco radio's, it is not a simple repair by any means, the radio must be removed from the car and then the radio chassis taken apart, the very tiny bulbs (size of a pencil point) are soldered to the front of the radio's main circuit board for the display, this job requires special pin point cordless low heat solder gun and a printed circuit board solder removal vacuum, The GM dealer does not service these bulbs, all they will do is remove the radio and send it out for repair to a GM radio repair center, if you do wish to attempt the replacement of the display bulbs they are a 12 volt 60ma, you will need 3 for the display, you can buy them from Radio Shack, the Radio Shack part # is #7219. You can also remove the Radio and send it in yourself for replacement of the display bulbs, this is what I recommend, if you damage the circuit board by applying to much heat the radio is so much junk.

Radio does not turn on - red security light sometimes flashes


I had the same problem, the main plug in the back of the radio does not seat correctly, you have to buy the radio removal tools which are four "keys" you pop into the four corner slots of the radio, pull out the radio, unclip the main wire plug and re-clip it in... it'll work fine, however, its happened to me about 3 times in the 6 years I've owned the car, so keep those keys handy. Oh, and don't believe any dealer that'll tell you different, my dealer told me I needed a new $500 radio, and the radio removal tools were like $300.... I got them for like $20 on ebay.
