I just put a cd in the cd player and now i cant get it to eject or play! do i need a code or anything to put a new cd player in?

check fuses.
if good, the player is jammed, service said player.
some players have a emergency eject feature. RTm.
every player is different , RTM for your player.
on some there is a tiny hole, you push in a paper clip and push
and it ejects.
others the lid must come off.

most stock or DIN radio heads, etc, need a special key to remove
them. unlocks it and then the head comes out with screws.
codes are for unlocking a locked head, (software, if not enabled
you dont have this.)

How do I remove the Radio/CD player

There are 4 holes on the radio (two on each side) that requires a special tool that has to be inserted on each side. You can purchase the tool at auto parts store. Insert the tool and pull the radio out.

Cd player removal

To remove the radio you will either need radio removal keys (they are just U-shaped metal objects. You could use a thick metal hanger and cut 2 6 inch strips then bend them in a 'U' shape). You can buy these for about 2 dollars at Wal-Mart or on Ebay for about $1. Once you have them, there are 2 small, round holes on either side of your radio. The holes should be located on the top and bottom of each side of the stereo. Insert the 'keys' then push them outward (left and right). This will apply pressure to the metal tangs inside. As you do this, pull back on the keys and the deck will come out. From there, just unplug it. That's it! I hope this helps. Sometimes you have to look for the little plastic tabs that are hiding the holes. You can use a tiny flathead screwdriver to pop the tabs out. I hope this helps you. If so, remember to vote.

How do i remove the factory stereo

You will need either special removal tools or use butterknife and pry the little metal tabs all the way around the player. ON the player, there are little metal pins that hold onto the rest of the dash panel. These tabs need to be pried down.

Some factory players have four holes in them and you need to put a long thin nail in all four holes at same time for it to pull out

Need to replace the radio/cd player in my 2001 elantra

on the hyundai you will usaually see four small holes two either side of the radio unit itself. if you take 4 allen keys/hex keys and insert all at the same time making sure to keep them very straight the stereo unit shuld then be free to pull out. you will then find that it has a universal plug on the back of it and you should be able to plug and play with that. if wrong size/type of plug then buy a convertor from motor discount store.

Cd deck

on each side of the radio, there are two holes.
a special two pronged (ford radio removal) tool slides into the two holes on each side of the radio.once inserted, the holding mechanism is released, and the radio slides out.
If you cannot puchase the keys locally, allen wrenches of the proper diameter will work.
