1991 Carina 2 Car Radio

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

Sorry if im maybe posting this in the wrong place but I thought someone here may be able to help.

My dad has a 1991 Toyota carina 2 and the radio has gone kaput. Im looking at getting him a new car radio for christmas but im worried new radios won't fit the car.

Will I need a wire adapter or frontplate adapter? Is it that standard new radios dont tend to fit this model of car?

Thanks for any advice!

Amy

That takes me back. My dad had a Carina II (on an F plate) and that had an Alpine ? (from memory) stereo as factory fit. I got a G reg Carina II and that had a Toyota branded unit that was actually made by Panasonic. And I replaced that at the time with... a better Panasonic :) and it was quite easy from what I remember. But its all a long time ago... and being an electronics tech helped too :)

I think the best advice would be to seek the advice of a car audio dealer and ask what is available as a replacement. If you are unable to identify the wiring yourself (which is straightforward with a multimeter) then you either need either someone to install a replacement for you, or one with guaranteed connectors that will fit. There was no problem with the size at the time, I think it was a standard DIN size back then... as were they all.
