Your deck is bolted in with (2) 8mm bolts in the back. If you can't access them by removing the ash tray area you will have to lie on your back on the floor of the vehicle. Look behind the radio and you will notice a metal bracket with the bolts. A specialty tool called a "skew driver" is sometimes needed. What that does is enable a drill to have a 90 degree angle so you can attach a socket and remove the bolts

How to can i replace stereo


see this : God bless you
Review your car's owner's manual to see if it has any tips on removing the current stereo. It may have a diagram of the wiring and the area where the stereo is installed.

  • 2 Disconnect the battery to avoid an electrical short while working with the wiring.
  • 3 Use a screwdriver to remove the retaining screws holding in your car stereo. Grab hold of the stereo and pull it toward you to remove it from the dashboard.
  • 4 Get a pair of DIN tools to slip on either side of the stereo, if the stereo connects to the dash using spring clips and bolts. These thin tools slide in easily, release the clips, and allow the stereo to come out easily. You may need to remove dash panels when bolts hold in the stereo. Take out the bolts and screws that hold the stereo in, and then simply pull it out.
  • 5 Look at the wires on the back of your car stereo. You should see 2 wires attached to the stereo. A wiring clip protects the stereo from vibrations and holds the wiring harness steady.
  • 6 Pry the wires up from the stereo and loosen them using a pulling/pushing motion. After working the wires back and forth, you should be able to pull the wires straight out.

    How do I fix the door/lock of my 1991 Acura Integra? I can only open the driver side door from the outside


    There are only 2 places that you have the problem on the inside door handle. one is at the handle,and the little plastic holder that holds the rod to the handle broke, or the plastic clip the the door lock mechanism broke. the first can be removed without taking the door apart. the inside door handle has a screw holding it in place. you can remove the handle and see if its broken. the second requires you to remove the door panel, to replace the clip that hold the rod to the lock. I door handle in the car is a dealer item only(sorry to tell you that), the clip for the lock, you can get at the auto parts store. hope this helps

    How do i remove the old factory stereo to install a new after market one???


    Hi,


    Please follow the detailed instructions below carefully;

    1.Basically, you remove the 4 philip's head screws holding the instrument panel in ( two above the steering wheel area, and two are hidden in the ash tray, so you have to remove it).

    2.Then you GENTLY pry the whole panel loose, because it is held in place by several clips all around. If you use a screw driver, cover it in tape so you don't damage the plastic. (Note; it's a good idea to disconnect the battery before going any further.)
    3.Then you have to unplug all the attached connectors so you can remove the panel entirely.


    4.Then you unscrew the stereo mount (6 screws), pull it out, and unplug the two connectors.


    5.At this point, you need a wire harness and mount kit to install an after market stereo.

    6.Installation is the reverse of removal.

    Have a nice day!!!

    How do you remove the radio out of a honda civic


    good day Sir, In order to gain access to the rear of the stereo for either connection to, or replacement of the factory unit, you must first remove the panel surrounding the (manual) gear stick. This should not be attempted with any form of 'level' to avoid damage to the dash finish. To remove the surround simply press fingers into the gear gaiter to gain purchase behind the panel and firmly 'pull' the panel toward you to disengage from the clips that hold it in place. The main panel above requires removal which involves location and loosening (not necessarily removal) of two hex headed screws approximately 6 inches (150mm) down from the head unit behind the panel, which screw the vertical metal plates holding the panel to the under dash mountings. To gain access to the screws push the two stops on the glove box inwards to allow the glove box to swing downwards. On the other side remove the small panel under the steering column Once loosened, the entire stereo/ heater control panel may be pulled toward you to disengage the clips that hold it in position. Reassembly is the reverse of removal, ensuring that the screw slots are properly engaged before final tightening of screws and reinstallation of gear stick surround.i hope this will help you

    How do i remove the factory stereo surround without breaking it - 2006 model accent?



    All new cars are alike and use snaps and clips to hold everything together. Most likly you can remove the trim around the in dash radio unit with a thin metal tool. They have special tools at the car dealer for this. I know with the older model hyundai's there are two clips at the bottom of the front panel where the cigarette lighter thing is. Once you do find a way to remove the front panel there most likly are screws holding the radio unit in. I myself am about to remove my radio unit but I am just gonna stop in to my dealer and see what tool to use.

    Removal of factory stereo from 97 cavalier


    First remove the vent from the middle of dash up by windshield. It has one philips head screw, then has a clip on each side.

    Then you need a 7mm. First there are two screws under were the vent you just took out was. One is longer than the other.

    Next take the side covers off each side of the dash, these are the sides of the dash were the door panel meets the dash. I believe there was either one or two screws on each side after the cover is popped out.

    Next open the glovebox, there are two gold screws up through a hole in the top of the glovebox, they hold the airbag in. Then there are like four more along the edge of the glovebox were the top of the door would meet the dash.

    After all those screws are out then you can take the top dash cover out, but your not done yet.

    After the top cover is out you will have like four more screws they go straight down right behind the face of the dash. After they are out the rest is clips and unplug the wires for the lights and lighter. After its free remove it,

    Now you can take the two or three screws holding the radio out and pull it out. Now just reverse the whole thing and pray for no extra screws or broken tabs.

    It takes more time than it is hard, just don't try and rush it or you'll be calling salvage yards for parts. Hope this helps.
