remove the doghouse . remove the knobs and shaftnuts behind the knobs. to the right of the dash there will be a metal bracket attached to the radio and the body of the van. remove the bolt and disconnect the wiring and remove radio from behind dash
if im not mistaken i you have to pull your dash off then behind the dash you will have about three or four screws holding your radio in place after removing those screws you should be able to take your radio out as far as puling you dash you will need to look for about two screws usually on the bottom if not the check in to make sure before you go yanking on your dash that you have removed every screw so as you dont break it
This is a very simple procedure...all you do is pull on it. The trim piece which goes around the stereo and instrument cluster is one piece and is held in by snaps. it will be easier if you take the drivers under dash panel off before pushing the dash bezel Be careful when you are removing it around the steering wheel-it can be stubborn, but moving the shift lever all the way into 1st gear and tilting the steering will all the way down will help.
I would put things back to stock and see if they now work. If they dont you may of shorted out a solder joint and ruined the cluster which would have to be replaced as a whole. If after you get it bact to stock and everything works I would be hooking up to a different power source. Also its always a good Idea to run an extra ground wire from engine to body when you add a more steroo system or accessories. This prevents electrolisis in the radiator which could eat thru the heater core or radiator.
Just had the same problem. It would say Track 63, and nothing would work. We have a 2001 Beetle, and on a road trip, it stopped working while we were driving and listening to CDs.
From another post, someone suggested removing the negative cable from the battery post. Tried this and it still did not help. However, I noticed that the cable would not tighten as I would expect. All cables are very clean, but I needed to push the cable further down before tightening. Ended up lightly tapping it down on the post with a small hammer, then tightening. Well, after that, all worked. Also noticed that the beep when locking the car was louder.
You need to remove th whole inst. cluster to replace the bulbs that are located on the BACK side in bulb carriers. Usually turning a 1/4 turn to the left reomves the carries in order to replace the bulbs. Some manufactuers, you have to replace the bulb carrier/socket and bulb as a unit , others just pull the bulb and replace with the SAME type bulb as removed. Most instrument carriers will have on the back what the particular bulb in a specific position is used for by a symbal and the wattage for the also ie: 2.5, which is 2.5 watts. In remove ing the cluster be very careful removeing the connectors from the back. There are certain ways each has to be released to come off but usally can only go in a certain location in the cluster, just make a mental note to yourself has you disconnect them and you will be fine.

today's in-dash cd players are a 2 part mounting system. One part is the carrier chassis that is hard mounted to the dash. Then the cd player slides into part 1 and latches. To remove player from part 1, insert 2 long and narrow metal tools along each side to un-latch the player. The tools come with a new unit. To make these, try making them out of 1/16 inch thick metal and trimming to following dimensions: 6 inches long by 1/2 inch wide and at one end, narrow down to about 1/8 inch about 1 inch from the end. deburr all edges. This 2 part system is designed for anti-theft defense.
