Question about 2005 Pontiac Grand Am
Just started; when you place cd in the player it makes a funny noise and like it is trying to accept cd and then it spits it out and I mean spits it out, falls on the floor. I just want to know if it can be fixed or if I should just buy a new one!! Thank you very much
Cd player is probably shot at that point. if its a newer grand am, like 02 on up - this is how to take the dash apart and replace cd player -
theres a trim piece around the cd player and climate control knobs. check all around this trim piece for screws. if none, its held in by pressure clips. just pull firmly but gently and evenly and it will pop off without breaking. there are 3 bolts holding the cd player in place. 9/32 is the size for a socket. after that you pull the cd player out. unplug the harness and the antenna.
this is very important -
an old standard gm wire harness to aftermarket radio WILL NOT work on this vehicle. you need a special gm harness that costs around $100. replaces door chime and prevents failure of a LOT of other options. its a long story, but trust me you need it. also an antenna adapter to go from gm's 'mini' size antenna to a standard. add a mount kit for the radio and you're lookin at $150 in parts before u even buy a radio.
dash reassembly is obviously just the reverse order of what was listed above.
hope this helps.
