Now adays it is next to impossible. If i were you and REALLY wanted it i would steal the car, drive it some where and take my time. The hidden screws are in different places for every make, model, and year. You can get books that show where all of them are at from the manufctor. My friend got one when he got a new cd playe with it, and some come with those extra parts kits. Youc an find some online too. But ussally your best bet is having atleast an hour to take it out.

I recenty foudn one in a truck that was really ghetto rigged and i was able to pushit out from underneth and then cut the wires with my knife, but most won’t be like that.

comewyththewykidness sounded like he knew what he was talking about till now. Steros are hard to steal, they make them that way on purpose. You could just rip the dash off but then how do u get the radio off the mounting brakets. All the screw that hold the radio in can be a bitch to get at too. And they aren’t attached to plastic. If you want to radio jack the entire car. Drive it some where so u can have enough time when you try to steal the radio.

It’s been a while since I installed a car stereo, but I used to all the time for friends (grudgingly).  Last I knew, most of them just slid into a locking retainer, and could then be release with two DIN keys.  If you don’t have any from another stereo, you could just hack some strips of sheet metal off with some tin snips… I did that myself when I was adding an amp to my car and had lost mine.  For security, you could bolt the back of the head unit to a steel strap and screw that into the frame… is this what you’re referring to, or have they abandoned the “slide in” system altogether since then (2 years or so)?

no its still the same (here in the uk anyway) u can just get a small screwdriver down the side and prise the radio out its not hard and can be done in a minute

are speakers and amlifires easy 2 get 2?

— Posted by jmb1125 on 10:47 pm on April 2, 2002

Well, it really depends if it is factory installed or aftermarket. If it’s factory installed, forget it. If it’s aftermarket, like Zambosan said, that’s the way
I’ve seen them put in, and removed.

Speakers and amplifiers (too early 2 spell) should be quite hard 2 get amps and speakers usally have 4 to 8 screws holding them in

Plus most are hidden just think if u spent loads of money on amps and speakers how hard would u make it for some1 to nick

why not steal the whole car then drive it to a secluded area and take all the time you need to get it out then just for fun run it over a cliff or into a lake.

In the past few months i have installed/helped install about 4 stereos, they have all screwed in. Once when wetook one out that was factory, that one we just had to push somethings in when we took it out, but the new one we put in had to be screwed.

— Posted by David carr on 4:11 pm on April 3, 2002

what make was the stereos u put in

CD players in cars are rediculously easy to jack.  Me and a friend were going to steal a bunch from car so we practiced on this abandoned car in a lot.  To get into the car you never would have thought but you can break the porcelian off a spark plug (yes its tough…try using a small ball peen hammer and placing against some metal surface)  Then when you get the pieces bigger is better if you get a piece about the size of a pea then that is good.  Once i used 3 small piece that were together about the size of a pea i guess.  Well anyways when you get the porcelian throw it at a car window as hard as you can and the window will break relititivly quietly(note this will not work on windshields there too damn stong).

Then ones your in car bring 1 or 2 screw drivers and jammer then in molding around cd player and pry the dash or the molding around cds player off.  Once you see the cradel i think its called look to left and right of cdplayer unit and you will see these small metal tabs use screw drivers to push then in and pry out then there will be a bunch of wires connected to it unplug them and your done.  When I did it for the first time I would have said that it took me no more then 2 minutes.  Go to your local tweekers or place that sells car stereos and check out how you get them out some you need a small tool that you slide into the back and pull it out with that.
