Replace The Tape Stero With A Cd Player


Recommended Posts

Recently bought a kenwood KDC-1023 CD player from a local bargain shop and want to

install in my Corolla (1996 model). So I took out the accessory panel and found the two vents

and the emergency button/rear window defogger child-panel are stuck to the front panel.

It seems that I need to take them to access the stereo. But it looks rather messy and I am wondering is the right way.

Any advice appreciated.

Thats the correct way to do it. The two vents come out with the panel and the switches have an electrical clip on them. There's three in total, hazard/fog/clock, unclip these and pull the panel out. If the tape is factory-fitted, it's screwed in with brackets, which you will be able to see once you've pulled off the cover.

You should be able to fix your new tapes to these brackets. As far as wiring goes, I recommend buying wiring adapter, available at MotorWorld/ Halfords etc, between £8-10 and make the job a doddle.

Hope this helps.
