Step 1: Remove the air vents at the top of the console. Use a screwdriver around them cardfully, it comes straight out, it is held in by pressure clips.
Step 2: Remove the two screws at the top, they become visible when the vents are removed.
Step 3: Remove the ash tray completely. Again it is held in with pressure clips on each side. Becareful the bottom side has a pin on each side that go straight down, DO NOT PRY Sideways Pull the ash try straight out.
Step 4:There is a removable piece behind the ash tray it has foam rubber on the top side. Becareful not to break this, it is just a snap in pressue fited piece.
Step 5: When the piece is removed the two lower retaining screws are visible, remove these two and the radio and associated panels will come out.
Step 7: Reverse for installation.
Note the wire connecting everything are short so be gentle and careful.
Hope this helps anyone wanting to remove their radio.

Hi, are you referring to the casset head? If you remove the head you have to realign it, do you have that kind of equipment? If not take it in to someone that does. I used to be in electronics but never messed with the heads. I would take the whole unit in to someone.

Hey, I'm talking about the shared cd player / cassette/ radio unit.
I'm going to be removing then replacing so i'm not too worried about lining it all back up afterwards. Just need the steps on how to remove the dash around it so I can get to it. thanks

The first post in this thread really says it all. Remove the air vents above and the asytray below to access the mounting bolts for the unit.

I am having no luck with "Step 1: Remove the air vents at the top of the console. Use a screwdriver around them carefully, it comes straight out, it is held in by pressure clips."
I have poked, prodded and pulled everything. Exactly how do you release the top clip under the trim?
A YouTube video showing how to do this would be a HUGE help.
Thanks in advance.
