Im sorry for posting so many NEWB questions, but when I bought the truck. The guy had a Jensen CR225X Casette and AM radio in it. I am wanting to replace this with a FM radio, and CD Player. I cannot find a manual online, nor figure out how in the world to get the thing out.
it wuold be great if one of you nice men (or women) could give me ways or ideas on how to get this out of here. Rather than giving Best Buy $50 to do it.
Generally most of head units have holes, some in the corners of the front panel, like stock radio, others in the middle height on both left&right sides. They may look like slots, and also may be hidden under removable front panel small frame (if you have one) . Inserting something in (depending on a holes/slots shape) about 2-3 inches deep should unlock the cage locks.
When you will be connecting new head unit - check every wire for voltage with ignition on - wire colors probably will not match, and you don't want to burn built-in amp by connecting speaker output to +12V wire.
There are three ways to do it - good one, bad one and russian one
When you buy the new stereo it is most likely going to come with key looking objects that you insert on the sides of the radio in the middle...pushing them in then pulling the stereo out...It's really simple.
