How do you get the radio out?

    I've tried to get it out of '95 but can't seem to get the combination right without taking the whole dash out. Any tips? I want'ed to put in an AM/FM car radio because the original doesn't work. Thanks

    95? What type of radio is it? What model of vehicle is it? Do you know if it's stock?

    Heck, don't matter. Should be a plastic shroud around the radio. Usually popped off easily using a screwdriver. Sometimes you have to remove the ashtray (if equipped) to access another screw. After popping off the shroud, you should be able to access any retaining bolts to the radio casing, usually 2 bolts per side. Might be one underneath in the ashtray if it's directly under the radio. Once the bolts are loose, you should be able to slide it out - depending on the length of the antennae wire and power plug.

    That's the basics, but without further information, your application might differ.......

    Thanks for the reply, Its a 95 ACTY with a stock radio with a single stem. The face plate doesn't want to pop off. Taking off the ashtray only lets you get the whole dash off.

    Sorry I can't be more help. In the past, I've used a few websites by googling "car stereo removal" and found info on probably a dozen or so makes, but I tried with the Acty and can't find anything. Are there any little slots on either side of the faceplate? Some radio models have release pins that can only be accessed by a 'key' inserted into slots on both sides.

    I got it out, there are two screws securing the radio bracket that you get to by removing the ashtray and standing on your head. Now I need a radio.

    let us know what you get -- my 93 came without a radio... I was going to send you a picture of the space so you could see the bracket, but you already got it out...

    On my model year the original Honda radio (of course with Pixel faults, but still working) comes out by removing the ashtray and then you see the screws which hold the bracket of the radio.
    OldMachinist installed an aftermarket radio, pics here http://www.minitrucktalk.com/showthread.php?4139-ACTY-Radio-Install
    So if you want to install an aftermarket radio, use the old bracket or bend something to fit. Here is a pic of a Honda Vamos Radio where a bracket is shown

    I had to pull a/c plume off first, to be able to get screwdriver up into those screws in the back base of radio, just behind (above) ashtray.
    I didn't have to stand on my head , but would have had to find those !! screws. underdashradio1.jpg actyradio.jpg

    My 1992 van came with an aftermarket deck in it. The stereo is precariously-placed in the hole, so it makes it easy to remove. It had a weird-looking tape deck in it, but upon closer inspection, it wasn't a tape deck, but rather a MiniDisc player!
