Disconnect the negative battery cable. Pry the trim panel using a trim removal tool. Using a DIN "radio removing tool" push the tool into the faceplate far enough to engage the retaining clips. Apply a slight spreading force on the tools and pull the radio chassis out of the instrument panel. Disconnect the wiring connectors and remove the radio.
You can purchase DIN tools from car stereo or auto supply stores. They look like two U-shaped pieces of wire. They are cheap.
first off is it an oem raido we are talking about or is it an aftermarket raido if it is oem you can try the dealer but if its aftermarket you are better just buying a hole another raido and lertting a pro installing it for you
Your best bet is to try craigslist maybe someone has a unit that does not work anymore and you can take the faceplate from it. As to buying just the faceplate you can e-mail the manufacturer and as them if they sell just the faceplate. That is probably the best you can do,.
Time to get a new head unit! In all my years of installing car audio, unless you know someone with a faceplate from an old broken unit, you'r out of luck. If you do find a source for just facerplates, please let me know
oh well, if im not mistaken that is a tape player correct? and well since the unit is already in the faceplate shouldn't need a security code, although if you replaced the whole thing, even then it shouldn't be a problem. Hope i could help Deneenie.
1) Turn on the car. 2) The faceplate rotates out and the CODE - - - - prompt appears. 3)
Press >>' and Auto keys simultaneously on the faceplate and hold
for 4 seconds. (If the faceplate rotates back into the console push on
the upper left top edge of the faceplate and it will flip back around.
Press the Eject button and then try it again.) 4) The screen will
still say CODE, but the - - - - will disappear! When this happens press
the 5 key on the remote twice and it enters a K on the display on the
faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate. 5) Press the 2 key
on the remote three times and it enters a C on the display on the
faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate. 6) Press the 2 key
on the remote once and it enters an A on the display on the faceplate.
Hit the >>' key on the faceplate. 7) Press the 7 key on the
remote twice and it enters an R on the display on the faceplate. Hit the
>>' key on the faceplate. 8) The radio goes into All Off mode and you are set! Hit the SRC button on the faceplate to select CD, Radio, etc.
Get an old credit card, snap in half the long way.. take each piece and slide on each side of radio (after removing faceplate and trim ring) should just be able to pull out after... if not reply with the type of car it is in...
