Hey guys well as the topic states im trying to get my stock tape player out of my vk. I've tried searching for similar topics but found nothing :bang:

By the looks of it you have to remove the whole dash to get it out? Is that the only way? Im sure there is some easy way and im just not thinking straight :sleeping:

Thanks

i think you need to remove the heater controls on the left and there is one more screw hiding behind the controls.

I agree with Trosal's comment about the screws at the back. The radio is held in place by a bracket at the back of the radio, there is no point trying to pull it out without undoing this first.

You need to remove the instrument cluster surround panel (the black plastic piece with the centre air vents on it) by undoing the 4 screws, 3 at the top and 1 under the touch control panel (demister, electric antenna buttons, etc).

Once this is out there is a screw above the radio towards the back. This holds the bracket in place. This bracket is attached to the back of the radio. This screw is a bit hard to get to so try using a swiss army knife that has a screwdriver attachment, its nice and short.

This should make it a bit easier to get out once you've done that and removed the radio suround panel and heater controls.

P.S. the 4 screws you've undone in the pic just hold the face of the radio on so you may as well put them back in.
