Remove kenwood kdc-mp145 from 1998 Corolla
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
GOOD LUCK !!!
