View Full Version : How do you get the radio out?
05-22-2008, 11:41 AM
I've tried to get it out of '95 but can't seem to get the combination right without taking the whole dash out. Any tips? I want'ed to put in an AM/FM car radio because the original doesn't work. Thanks

95? What type of radio is it? What model of vehicle is it? Do you know if it's stock?
Heck, don't matter. Should be a plastic shroud around the radio. Usually popped off easily using a screwdriver. Sometimes you have to remove the ashtray (if equipped) to access another screw. After popping off the shroud, you should be able to access any retaining bolts to the radio casing, usually 2 bolts per side. Might be one underneath in the ashtray if it's directly under the radio. Once the bolts are loose, you should be able to slide it out - depending on the length of the antennae wire and power plug.
That's the basics, but without further information, your application might differ.......

Thanks for the reply, Its a 95 ACTY with a stock radio with a single stem. The face plate doesn't want to pop off. Taking off the ashtray only lets you get the whole dash off.

Sorry I can't be more help. In the past, I've used a few websites by googling "car stereo removal" and found info on probably a dozen or so makes, but I tried with the Acty and can't find anything. Are there any little slots on either side of the faceplate? Some radio models have release pins that can only be accessed by a 'key' inserted into slots on both sides.

I got it out, there are two screws securing the radio bracket that you get to by removing the ashtray and standing on your head. Now I need a radio.

let us know what you get -- my 93 came without a radio... I was going to send you a picture of the space so you could see the bracket, but you already got it out...

Ho did that radio go I know I had a real issue to get mine out since it was old two rotary dial model I had to cut out part of the facia and re-modify ventilation system to fit a new one in It all looks pretty now I should probably update a new picture in my album to reflect how polished its all looking
