REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Radio/Tape Deck/CD Player
See Figures 1, 2 and 3
On most models, the radio is held in by 2 clips in the console. Remove the side covers and locate the 2 access holes (one on each side) in line with the radio case. Insert a small probe or very small screwdriver into each hole and push gently. This releases the clips and the radio may be removed from the front of the console.
Other models have the same style clips, but they are released by inserting a thin, flat probe down each side of the radio from the front. Again, release the clips and slide the radio free. Disconnect the wiring before pulling the radio too far from the dash.
The radios on some models are designed with the releases built into the front of the case. Simply push the tabs with your fingers and remove the radio.
Although these radios are relatively simple to remove, many have a security code programmed into the circuitry. Once reinstalled, the radio will not work if the correct code is not entered. The radio should not be removed or disconnected if the user code is not available.
