There are several ways on how to remove the stereo depending on the model.

i have an LX sedan, and it takes a longer time to take the stereo out rather than a hatchbak and VTI.

for me, the tech took out the ash tray (just below the airconditioning controls) and the cover under the steering wheel. then you take out the radio inwards using a special key (that the stereo maker provides).

hope you understood, kinda tough to explain.

need the model of the car first.

:P

How to can i replace stereo


see this : God bless you
Review your car's owner's manual to see if it has any tips on removing the current stereo. It may have a diagram of the wiring and the area where the stereo is installed.

  • 2 Disconnect the battery to avoid an electrical short while working with the wiring.
  • 3 Use a screwdriver to remove the retaining screws holding in your car stereo. Grab hold of the stereo and pull it toward you to remove it from the dashboard.
  • 4 Get a pair of DIN tools to slip on either side of the stereo, if the stereo connects to the dash using spring clips and bolts. These thin tools slide in easily, release the clips, and allow the stereo to come out easily. You may need to remove dash panels when bolts hold in the stereo. Take out the bolts and screws that hold the stereo in, and then simply pull it out.
  • 5 Look at the wires on the back of your car stereo. You should see 2 wires attached to the stereo. A wiring clip protects the stereo from vibrations and holds the wiring harness steady.
  • 6 Pry the wires up from the stereo and loosen them using a pulling/pushing motion. After working the wires back and forth, you should be able to pull the wires straight out.

    How do you remove radio, from my 2001 dodge neon, that just went dead, for no reason. I replaced the fuse on the side of dash board. Still nothing.


    Safety Precautions
  • Before removing the stereo or any other electrical component, it is vital that you first disconnect the grounding cable from the Neon's battery. The grounding cable connects the battery to the frame or chassis of the vehicle.

    Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to loosen the grounding cable's camp from the negative battery lead. Make sure to rest the clamp away from the negative lead post until the removal is complete.
  • Remove the Dash Trim Panel
  • The dash trim panel that surrounds the Neon stereo needs to be removed to access the stereo. The panel contains, but is not connected to, the climate control knobs on the dashboard.

    Grab the panel at the bottom corners and pry it from the dash. You will likely be able to remove the panel without the assistance of a trim pry tool, but if you are having difficulty removing the panel by hand, wrap a thin cloth around a trim panel removal tool or flat head screwdriver to remove the panel.

    Once the lower edge of the panel is relieved from the panel, you can work your hands (or flat pry tool) around the perimeter to separate the remaining edges.

    Since the panel is not connected to the climate control knobs, you will not need to disconnect the wiring to the knobs. The panel, once free, can be set aside until you replace the stereo.
  • Remove the Stereo
  • The Neon stereo deck is held into the stereo mounting bracket by 10 millimeter bolts on either side of the radio. Remove the bolts and store them in the ashtray for safe-keeping.

    Pull the stereo from the dock. The unit will easily slide from the mounting bracket with an even pull from the left and right of the stereo. Pull the stereo far enough to reach the wiring on the rear of the radio.

    The wiring to the stereo includes the antenna, the power supply and the speaker wires. There may also be patch cables connected if an amplifier is connected to your stereo system. Pull the cables from the stereo. The antenna and power supply are single cables. The speaker wires (and patch cables) will be grouped by wire binders. The plastic wire binders should be pulled as a unit. Do not pull the wires themselves.

    Once the wiring has been disconnected from the stereo, the unit will be completely free from the Neon.

    If you plan to operate the vehicle before installing a new stereo or re-installing the factory deck; reconnect the grounding cable to the negative battery lead. Otherwise, leave the cable away from the negative lead until all of your work is completed.

    HOW DO YOU REMOVE STEREO FROM 2000 BMW


    Hello,

    Before removing the stereo you need to ensure that the battery's grounding cable is
    disconnected from the negative lead. Most BMW models have the battery housed under
    the hood while others (a relative few) store the battery on the left side of the
    vehicle in the trunk. Use a 10 mm wrench to loosen the bolt holding the clamp of
    the grounding cable around the negative lead.

    Use a trim pry tool to remove the vent housing above the stereo.
    The vents can be removed to allow access to the stereo or removed completely.
    Once the perimeter of the vent housing is loose from the dash, you can feed the
    wiring that connects to the hazard light button through the front of the vents.
    With the hazard switch pushed forward, simply disconnect the power supply to
    completely free the vent assembly.

    The climate control group at the bottom of the stereo also needs to be removed to
    access the stereo. The climate control housing can be removed by hand. Grab the
    climate control at the bottom and the top. Pry from the bottom and remove.
    The climate controls do not need to be removed completely. When it is free from
    the dash there will be enough slack in the wiring to allow you to place it aside
    to access the stereo.

    There are two screws that hold the factory stereo in its dock. Those screws,
    located on either side of the stereo facing upward, can be removed using
    Phillips-head screwdriver. Once the screws are removed, the deck slides forward to
    allow access to the wiring at the rear of the stereo. The wire groups at the rear
    need to be removed and can be done so in any order. The four wiring groups connect
    to the antenna, the amplifier, the speakers, and the power supply (the battery).

    If you plan to install an aftermarket stereo, most will be compatible with BMW
    wiring. If not, you can connect the wiring groups to a wiring harness adapter
    before connecting to the new unit.

    Take care and good luck
