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?

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.

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.
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.
