Hello 3134,

I'm assuming that you have the correct mounting sleeve. If not, you need the one that was delivered with the radio or an exact replacement. Also, once the receiver is inserted and locked into the sleeve, you need the appropriate "keys" to release it from the front.

There are some little metal "fingers" (tabs) that need to be gently bent inward until they securely contact the recesses built into the receiver case. The best technique is to push the tabs slightly from the outside and with one hand inside the sleeve, pull on them from the very tip. To insure that the case is centered, bend all of the tabs about an equal amount.

Hope this helps.

How to remove blade?

If the blade is stuck on then there is likely damage to the hole inside the blade and the shaft sleeve it fits on to so you should expect to replace both or it's going to happen again and again. Brute force is going to be the answer. I have a chain that I wrap around the blade shaft where it goes onto the motor sleeve. Sometimes I secure it with a shackle or radiator hose clip then attach the other end of my chain to my workbench and accelerate the processor motor assembly away. Chain goes tight, big thump and blade flies off.

JVC KD-S595 car stereo. Trouble removing

It depends what kind of car it's installed into and the mounting technique used. Removal keys apply only to a radio that has been DIN mounted (ie: metal sleeve utilized). Many vehicles or radio kits use the ISO mounting method which involves screwing into the sides of the radio to secure it. Keys will not help in this situation. The dash or radio trim must be removed to access the screws on the sides.

With the front trim of the JVC removed, you should be able to see the metal sleeve around the radio if it was used. If not, the radio was ISO mounted.

I need the radio operating manual for a Jeep Patriot 2009 model. Where can I down load it from as the local dealer cannot seem to find a hard copy for me.

following is the procedure. u can also check ehow for more details.
  • Twist the negative cable off the terminal on the vehicle battery, using an adjustable wrench.
  • Remove the factory issue stereo. Pry off the radio trim bezel with a flat head screwdriver. Remove the four bolts on each corner of the radio. Pull the radio out the dashboard. Unplug the thick black radio antenna cable. Disconnect the wire harnesses from the rear of the stereo. Place the old stereo to one side.
  • Prepare the dashboard for the new stereo. Fit the radio installation sleeve provided with the aftermarket stereo to the radio installation kit. Feed the sleeve through the portal of the radio installation kit and bend the tabs on the sides of the sleeve to secure it in place. Feed the audio wiring of the Jeep and the radio antenna cable through the portal of the assembly and slide the assembly into the dashboard. Secure it in place with the bolts removed earlier.
  • Wire the new stereo. Connect the wiring of the stereo to the audio wiring of the Patriot, using a custom wire harness adapter. Push the connections together until they snap into place and test the connection by tugging gently on either end.
  • Plug the radio antenna cable into the alloted port on the rear of the aftermarket head unit.
  • Slide the connected aftermarket stereo into the prepared housing in the Patriot's dashboard. Click it into place in the radio installation sleeve, taking care not to trap any wiring.

    I have an Amana ARB2557 that was moved and when hooking up the copper water supply I realized there was no brass nut or sleeve to connect the water to the Refrigerator. I have tried a standard 1/4"...

    think your right most likely the fitting is stripped. but if its a plastic hose you need the compression ring the nut and a sleeve to slid in the plastic line. that prevents the plastic line from collapsing and is what the ring compresses to. without that it will leak.

    Trying to install a CDE-9881 into a 93 Honda Accord, is the mounting sleeve the only hardware used, or is there a mounting bracket also. Stereo will go in dash, but is unstable, and cuts out.

    Take your radio unit out of the mounting sleeve and see if you can bend tabs to hold the sleeve more securely to the dash panel... Not the greatest mounts... look on top, bottom and sides...

    Car radio for jeep

    Almost all, then you'll need to go over to and select a 'in-dash installation kit' . They provide a dash mounting panel for you to side the new radio's mounting sleeve.

    You might have a loose wire in the mic plug, also in the plug itself there are 4 holes for 4 pins in the radio to fit into, these 4 holes have tiny metal sleeves in them to make contact with the radio pins. these sleeves are split and you can take a tiny jewlers screwdriver and slightly close up these sleeves this causes them to fit tighter on the radio pins creating a better connection. these sleeves WILL over time spread out causing the radio to lose a function such as receive or transmit I have encountered this problem several times in the past at my shop. Good luck on your problem.
