Removal of radio--91 caddy

I have the trim plate off, and have removed the two screws that were at the top of the radio. There appear to be two clips at the top that also hold it in, am I correct or how do I proceed from here?

JVC KD-S595 car stereo. Trouble removing

It depends what kind of car it's installed into and the mounting technique used. Removal keys apply only to a radio that has been DIN mounted (ie: metal sleeve utilized). Many vehicles or radio kits use the ISO mounting method which involves screwing into the sides of the radio to secure it. Keys will not help in this situation. The dash or radio trim must be removed to access the screws on the sides.

With the front trim of the JVC removed, you should be able to see the metal sleeve around the radio if it was used. If not, the radio was ISO mounted.

Remove kenwood kdc-mp145 from 1998 Corolla

Step 1:

The radio is secured to the frame of the vehicles dash, with screws located behind the plastic dash panel (surrounding the radio).

This plastic dash panel unsnaps from the body of the vehicles dash.

Step 2:

The bottom of the plastic dash panel, just below the bottom of the radio, can be lifted up.

Look up from the below the radio and you will notice rectangular openings or insertion points where a flat tool can be inserted to pry out the bottom of the plastic dash panel.

With a flat head screwdriver or other flat object, pry out the bottom of the plastic dash panel.

Step 3:

Once the bottom edge of the plastic dash panel has been pulled out, the sides of the plastic dash panel will begin to separate from the body of the vehicles dash.

You will now be able to put your fingers into the openings on the sides of the plastic dash panel. Gently pull the plastic dash panel until it unsnaps from the body of the vehicle's dash.

Step 4:

Once all the clips on the plastic dash panel have been unsnapped, the dash can be pulled out.

The top of the plastic dash panel will have wires attached to the clock, hazard and defrost switches. You do NOT need to unplug the connectors plugged into them.

Move the plastic dash panel up and set it on top of the body of the dash.

Step 5:

The radio is held in with four (4) phillips screws / 8 mm bolts.
Remove the screw/bolts.

Pull the radio forward.

Unplug the antenna cable, and 2 white connectors from the rear of the radio.

Step 6:

If installing a different radio to your Corolla, buy a "snap on" adapter loom which eliminates the need for cutting any wires (Toyota --> New radio brand), from your local auto accessory store.

Mitsubishi Eclipse Spider Gt-S I cannot figure out how to get the fascia panel and face plate off of the radio to get to the numbers needed to retrieve the radio code. How do I take the panels OFF?


The stereo in the Eclipse can be removed with nothing more than a Phillips screwdriver

Disconnect the negative battery cable from your Eclipse's battery. Remove the two Phillips screws along the bottom of the radio/climate control trim panel. Lift up the bottom of the trim panel to unlock the lower retaining clips. Work your fingers around the sides of the panel to loosen the other clips and remove the panel. Remove the four Phillips screws holding the stereo in place. Slide the stereo out of the dashboard and disconnect the wiring harness and antenna cable from the back of the device.

I lost the booklet for the radio in my 1990 Jaguar XJS. It sits all winter in the garage and the battery wore down. The radio says code when i turn it on. The dealer says i must remove the radio to get the...

Remove the two environmental knobs by firmly pulling them. Note that they don't interchange (they're notched 180' out from each other) - but figuring out which one is which is easy - the FAN should be off when you do this, and that one will have the indicator facing down when you reassemble.
Behind the knobs are keyed nuts. Remove by using an appropriatley-sized flatbladed screwdriver while pushing in on the face plate (reducing the back pressure on the nut).
Once you have the two nuts out (one on each control shaft), you should remove the stereo face trim. Use an allen wrench or some other small bent piece of metal and gently insert it between the stereo and the facing along the side of the stereo (there is some space there), and pull the facing forward a bit at a time (possibly alternating sides). You can also do the same along the bottom of the facing (near the console) and along the top (below the light switches and trip computer).
Note:there are wires along the bottom edge, and they don't have a long play, so you'll be pulling the TOP DOWN rather than the bottom up when you clear the front of the stereo housing. Be careful: there are fibre optics here for lighting.
To either side of the stereo are two screws. Remove them and slowly pull the stereo outward. Disconnect the stereo from the two harnesses (speakers and power/controls), unscrew the grounding strap and unplug the antenna. Remove stereo.

My xdm6820 has no display showing. What do you sugest? Any ideas? It works fine but can not see clock or radio station. No display at all!!

There are two 3mm white LEDs inside the face-plate that need to be replaced. Remove the face-plate and turn it over. Remove the 4 screws in the corners. Un-snap the plastic back off the face-plate. This exposes the back of the printed circuit board. Pull the volume knob off the front of the face-plate. You may need to use a small screw driver to gently pry it up. Flip the face-plate back over and remove the one screw that's holding the printed circuit board in. Separate the printed circuit from the front of the face-plate. Be careful to not lose the spring for the push pin. Flip the printed circuit board over and you'll see a raised metal box surrounding the display. The one end of this metal box is covered in black tape. Remove this tape to revel a small cavity in the side of the metal box with two 3mm white LED in it. These are the 2 LEDs that need to be replaced. This cavity is so small there's not much working room. Note that the positive terminal for each of these LED is on the left and the negative terminal is on the right. Rather than un-soldering the old LEDs I found it easier to use a small pair of diagonal cutters to just cut their leads and then pull them out of the cavity. Leave enough of the old leads sticking up to solder the new LEDs to. Trim the leads of the new LEDs to the proper length, slide them into the cavity one at a time and solder their leads to the stubs of the old leads. Make sure you get the polarity correct. Put everything back together and you should be good to go. I hope this helps you out.

How do you remove an Alpine 7554R from a 1995 mondeo.

The plastic trim was held on, not in the modern way,by a clip in the centre of both sies of the radio/ cassette, which is part circular in shape. This opens up and fits round a pin on the side of the radio, steady pressure with a small screw driver will ease this off, but be carefull not to break the side clipse off, as I think they will be irreplaceable now.I haven't seen a plasic trim held on the same way before. The radio will now slide out of the case as there are no clips as there are on newer alpine models

Radio install

it's not that hard to remove the panel you'll need to pop up the defrost dashboard trim with a flat head screw driver and then you'll reveal the top screws for the center panel, then you'll need to pop out your ash tray and reveal the bottom screws. after all screws are out you'll be able to remove center panel by hand. then there will be 4 bolts holding your radio to the dash that you'll need to remove and you're done.

Installing rear speakers

You need a pair of alpine radio removal keys which get inserted in the slots along the sides under the trim ring. Any Car stereo shop should have them for free(ish).
