I can remove an engine but apparently a radio is beyond me.
The car is a 1991 UK spec 240 with the OEM radio above the vents. I want to
install a CD player in the old-style radio area in front of the gear lever.
This photo shows the radio and vents:
How do you remove the old one? There are two screws (torx head) which, when
removed, make it wobble but it won't withdraw enough to detach the wires.
I thought I'd try and remove the vents and glove box to aid myself. I
couldn't remove either - the vents wouldn't shift (I could only see one
screw next to the inst panel which only freed one side) and the glove-box
has two totally inaccessible screws which seemingly require the 'lid' to be
removed before the screws can be got at.
After removing the centre console I found the OEM amp which is behind the
main support. It has a multi-way connector and a DIN socket. Does anybody
know the pin-out / wiring colour code for the multi-way connector? My wiring
diagram doesn't show this radio. The amp looks like this:
I did succeed in changing some blown instrument lights though.
Any help most gratefully received.
