How to Remove Stock Stereo Head Unit

Dumb question I am sure it has been asked before but can't find it in the search engine. What's the easiest way to pull the stock unit without buying the special tools? Thanks for any help. Mine is a 6 disc in dash changer.

Re: How to Remove Stock Stereo Head Unit

The "special tool" is just a DIN remover and its like $3.79 at Walmart. People make them out of coat hanger wire and such. But nothing quite as nice as the cheap tool. I suggest you get a set.

Re: How to Remove Stock Stereo Head Unit

I think you need one of removal tools. You can make one yourself out of a coat hanger, but the tool is a little better. Universal DIN Tool

Re: How to Remove Stock Stereo Head Unit

you can also remove it with 4 small screwdrivers. The trick is to not insert the screwdrivers too far and to push the ends of the screwdrivers outward while pulling the radio towards you.

Re: How to Remove Stock Stereo Head Unit

You can also just "pull" the surround out, look behind the surround at where the Stereo "clips" to the surround, release them manually with a small screwdriver, easier with the removal tool, but not much more difficult if you just pull the surround off. To remove, just pull until the surround releases.
