How do you remove the radio of a 1994 Plymouth Acclaim?
Remove the plastic cover surrounding the stereo and air conditioning knobs/vents. Use a flat screwdriver with the tip covered with tape (not to scratch anything). Slip the screwdriver under the plastic cover and pry off, not too hard. If you wiggle around you will find the clips holding it in. Pry near the clips so you don't crack anything. Once the cover is off you should be able to see the bolts holding the radio in. Take the bolts out and pull the stereo out. Unplug the wires and the antenna. Now you have an empty space to add a new after market stereo, I recommend an Alpine.

Why is there no heat in my 1989 Plymouth Acclaim?
Low coolant?. Bad thermostat?. Heater core plugged, restricted, or airbound?. ======= . Good answers by original poster. I would recommend replacing the t-stat first. Its pretty straightforward. If that doesnt solve your problem, our 89 acclaim's have a heater valve (it shuts off coolant flow to the heater core when the a/c is activated to increase the efficiency of the a/c) by the firewall that can stick or lose vacuum (broken vacuum line). Check that next. Lastly, I would take the lines off the heater core and run a garden hose up to it. This will "backflush" any accumulated crud out of the heater core. I do this to my Acclaim every fall and cant believe the crap that comes out!. =======. When the heater went out in my car, I went in and found out that it was the heater control valve. Check it out.
