REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figures 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6Analog (Dial Type) Tuners-Pre-1980
- Disconnect the negative battery cable.
- Remove the radio control knobs by pulling them straight out. Remove the control shaft retaining nuts.
- Disconnect the speaker wires, the power lead (either at the fuse box or at the in-line fuse connection), and the antenna cable from its jack on the radio.
- Remove the hardware which attaches the radio to its mounting (support) bracket(s) and slide it back and down from the dash.
- Reverse the above procedure to install. Don't overtighten the shaft nuts and make sure the wiring is firmly connected before reinstalling the radio unit.
On most of the 200 series and some of the earliest 700 series, the radio is held in by two clips in the console. Remove the side covers and locate the two 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 clip and the radio may be removed from the front of the console.
Later 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 newest radios are the easiest to remove, with the releases being built into the front of the case. Simply push the tabs with your fingers and remove the radio.
