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> . . .

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 stereo from my 2004 Ford Focus ZX5?

U will need to go to the Ford dealer and buy the special tool kit (about $5) that lets u remove the radio from the dash, the two little tools release the spring clips on the sides of the radio that retain it in the dash, I also think that u can get these tools at any NAPA auto parts store.

How can I remove radio from 98 VW beetle to do repairs? Is there a special tool needed?

Yes there is. If you have the tall radio (double din) you will need the 4 key set. Search online for a set, they can be found fairly cheap. IF you have the standard size radio AND you feel brave there's a hack way, but it works. Two flathead screwdrivers on either side and pry it out. Look for this trick on youtube. I, personally am gonna get a keyset....

How can I remove my radio from my 2001 cabrio vw so I can get the radio serial number to reset my radio. I lost my code number to reset radio :-(

You do not need to take the dash apart, there are two little slots oneon each side of the face of the radio, you need special removal tools to unlock it and it will pull right out, but first check in your owners manual, or in the spare tire well for the card, or sticker which has the serial number as well as the unlock code for your radio.
