F/L Radio/climate panel removal
« on: 02 August 2019, 17:12:02 »

Can anyone point me to a guide that shows how this comes out please? My Parrot blue tooth has packed up, and I think is connected somewhere behind it. :y

Radio out.
Ashtray out, single screw reached over the top.
Two screws behind the top corner of the radiator.
Pull away trim.
Six screws to remove the cage assembly. *

This will require unplugging all the switches, the climate panel and the sockets for the switches...  :y

they have allen grub screws, assuming not lost.

When these are out, normal radio keys can remove the radio in normal way (but in omegas have tendency to stick a bit)

These .... https://www.halfords.com/workshop-tools/garage-equipment/fuses-electricals-fixings/halfords-stereo-removal-pins-din-type but they'll bound to be cheaper elsewhere.

but a facelift uses a double din head so they keys are the same idea but wider.

Well, it is sticking a bit. How far in do the double din tools go? I can get mine in up to the bends in the tool. Do they have to be in this far? It seems, with the side switchlites out, I may have to apply leverage to the unit from the sides which I prefer not to do. :-\

they do go in a lot , cheap pins are not machined correctly at the tips ,they should catch and grip the springs .
try pulling the pins apart (towards the doors) while wiggling the unit toward you
they are a snug fit

Thanks Dave, managed it by wiggling and gentle leverage. :y
However I am now unable to remove the cage. Is there anything other than the Phillips screw at the back holding it in?

From memory .... there are various tabs along the front edge of the cage (top, bottom & sides) that hold the cage in situ

Bend it inwards at the centre of each side.
It's a tighter fit than the radio ;)

Cheers Al, instead of trying to force it, I used a bigger hammer. ::)
But can I release the aerial plug from the back? Can I hell. >:(
Start again tomorrow. :y
