removing radio!

Postby martin1962 » Tue Feb 21, 2006 5:46 pm

I have a Clarion ARX6170R head unit with 6 cd changer. It came with the car and is no longer working. I have been trying to remove it with no luck!. I have brought a pair of Clarion removal tools from Halfords but they do not seem to fit and now am stuck as how to take it out! I really do not want to take the whole dash apart just to get to the tabs on the din unit. Does anyone else have any ideas?
I have e-mailed Clarion to see if they can help but have not had a reply.

Cheers

My current cd player is bolted to a frame behind the dash and can't be taken out without removing the dash. It could be that your's has been put in in a similar way.

I have just spoken to Clarion and they are sending me a set of removal keys to borrow. Will see if they fit!

Removing the centre console to get at a radio isn't a difficult job if you need to do it.

Doing a job properly is better than doing it half ass :lol: !

The good thing about most Clarion units is that they are very secure. At preventing your unit getting nicked they are brillient, at getting them out when you've got a new one.....they are a bitch. If I were you I would take the centre colsole out, when I did I found loads of wee goodies I had never seen before. :lol:

Sorry if this is crap!
