any1 know how to install a car cd player and remove the old one
just got one off of ubid. it is the jvc kd-640 and need to know how to take my other one out of the harness and install this one. thx. any1 have any urls?
usually you have to pop the dash off to get to the mounting brackets, undo all the screws going in the side, pull the old radio out and remove the harness from back. you can go to most electronic stores to get a harness or adapter plate if you need to and they should tell you how to install and wire up the harness
If it's an aftermarket one, you need those two little key things(not sure how to describe them..they're just 2 long and thin pieces of metal with handles on the end) You have to insert them to the left and right of the head unit to pop off the metal sleeves' locks. Might take a few jabs, but eventually you'll hear a click, then just pull the keys out and your head unit should slide right out with them Don't pull too far though, you might mess up the antenna and the wires. To install your new one, unless your old unit was a JVC, then you'll probably need a new connector. Then you'll have to match the wires up, and that's a royal pain if you don't have the manuals :/
An easier way to do it if you have an aftermarket one is to just firmly grasp the little "storage" slot and the top of your head unit and pull. Since MOST aftermarket decks and harnesses aren't screwed in, it'll just pop out. Just make sure it's not screwed in, just in case Dunno why they make them like that, makes them soooooo easy to steal :/ Might be easier to move your gear shifter into first so you have more room. After you have it popped out just take a screw driver to flip the little clip locks and pull out your old deck.
gutter ball- thats if you have a ford system
thx guys this sounds like I'm gonna need to have circuit city install it for me or find a website with some pictures. thx again.
if you have common sense then you can figure it out...things come apart one way and go back together the same way....thats how I learned how to tear apart motors and rebuild them...an old neighbor had a race car the he let us neighborhood kids tear apart every Sunday morning after Sat night races and one day I ask him to let me help him rebuild it and when it came time to reassemble it he told me that I already knew how and I looked at him like he was nuts and he said...the same way you took it apart is how you put it back together...DUH...I'd done it enough times and he was right..point being they are not really that hard to do...ever since that lesson there is little that I can not figure out how to take apart and put back together....give it a shot before you plunk down hard earned cash and you will enjoy it much more knowing you did it yourself
Might try crutchfield.com. They sell install kits (I think) and info for a wide variety of car audio equipment.
