'98 STS - Remove Radio

1218 Views 8 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  basscatt
I need to remove the radio/climate control unit from the center console of my car. What I read was to remove the top face cover then remove the screw and entire unit will come out. Well, my unit is getting hung up below the HVAC control part. I can't seem to find any screws. What am I missing?

On a side note, part of the repair that I am doing stated "don't not disconnect the radio if you don't have the security code". Well, I read my manual and all it says is that the radio in attached to the VIN number of the car and will not operate in any other car. No mention of a security code.

The consol top piece needs to be removed; it just prys up. Then there are two 7mm screws on the bottom of the HVAC unit that have to be removed.
If I remember, you may not have to remove the shift handle to do what you want to do. Once the wood trim is popped up, just pivot it around so you can access the two 7mm screws.
BTW, I think the '98 uses the U shaped staple in the front of the handle. Just pry it out and pull off the handle.
