Removal of my Alpine CDE-7872 from my 1998 Dodge Neon

Hi, I need to remove my CD player from my car - I've taken off the faceplate and moved the unlocking pins so that it should slide out but I cannot get it to budge - am I missing an important step? Is there a good place to grab the deck from?

Please help I need it out by morning

Hi there,

it sounds like your trying to remove the cage that holds the CD player in, you need to slide to small flat screen drives either side of the unit between the cage and the unit, then remove the cage after.

Why won't it turn on?


You have bent one of the small tines that engages the detachable faceplate with the unit itself most likely. You will need to get a magnifying glass and a fine jewelers screwdriver to straighten any bent tine so it connects properly.

My Alpine CDE 7872 faceplate goes blank intermittently, the unit still functions, just can't see what station you are on, what track, volume, etc...


is the faceplate detachable? if so remove it and clean the metal contacts on both the din unit itself and the faceplate with rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab or Q tip.

if it is not a detachable face, then i would say an internal solder joint is starting to come loose, that is an older alpine model number after all.

How do i remove the Cd player from the dash?


Alpine uses a non proprietary set of pins on each side of the deck. To get access to them you will need to remove the faceplate. Then remove the thin plastic trim from around the din chassis.

Normally using a butter knife or another thin piece of metal in each side between the deck and the DIN enclosure will allow you to depress the locking pins, then slide the deck out of the chassis.

You shouldnt have any problem at all. These don't use any special anti-theft features that would keep you from using any faceplate.

You must have a faceplate from that exact model, no others will work. You can try to contact Alpine for a replacement. If it is any consolation, someone has a useless faceplate, because it won't work with anything else, either. Try running an ad in your local lost & found column, you just might get lucky, especially if you offer a reward.
