How do i remove the stereo from a 1997 mitsubishi lancer?

Hi there,

Depending on which chassis model you have (there were two types in 1997), the most common radio mounting arrangement was behind the centre dash panel.

The centre dash panel (which surrounds the radio and possibly the face vents) is secured by a series of screws - these are usually visible and also possibly hidden behind an ashtray etc. Once you remove the screws, simply detach the panel (clips) from the dash assembly and withdraw the centre panel.

Once the centre panel is removed, the internal radio mount brackets will be visible. Remove the screws on the bracket to withdraw the radio (refer to diagram below):


Hope this helps...

How do I change the date on my sony xr c5100 face plate?

Go to this site. Dont click is in big letters-leave it alone.
Down to the right (Under the word DOWNLOAD in the green box) are pages you can see and when you roll your mouse over them, they say what page of the manual they are. You want Page 5. Click it and see what to do. Dont know if you can print it and I know you cant save it but you could do a PRINT SCREEN and then go to your WORD program in Accessories
on your computer and Paste. This will put the screen shot in Word and you can then save and print it.
Good is the link.

Need to remove the stereo to put a new one in. the stereo came with the car and i cannot find the release keys. is there any other way to remove it?

Release keys(extractors) are not always necessary

Here is a video showing how to remove a standard radio fromthe dashboard. A pair of key extractorsare required (available from Ebay etc ) but these can be made from 2 pieces ofbent, wire coat-hanger or 4 smalldrills(using the blunt end) or 4 small Allen Keys or 4 small screwdrivers or 4 nails or even 4darts. An assistant isuseful to pull the radio out whilst you are releasing the 4 securing clips note: on some radios ,these 4 holes are protected by 4 small screws. These can be unscrewedusing the appropriate of Allen key.

Hi, i have a 1998 chevy malibu and was wondering how to remove the cd player? i wanted to install a new faceplate so i can get sub woofers in there


Follow the below steps:
  1. 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.
I hope the above helps.

Good luck.

Don't know what faceplate to buy for Kenwood Stereo SER# r8188309

So if i understand your question correctly, you still have the stereo in your dash, but the face has been stolen, is this correct, Because if this is the case you can remove the rest of the stereo from the dash and somewhere on this unit it will tell you what model it is.

Dont know what wires go from the radio to the stereo

go to your local audio shop and have them get you the correct adapter and that should run you 10 bucks and just clip it in and wire it to the deck-they come with labels on all the wires too so that should help out i hope
