if it is an import you can get a fitting to change it to the UK fitting from halfods for about £15-00
not sure bout the 03 model but in the older ones, the centre panel has to be removed from around the radio and you take it out from beind the panel. makes it easier connecting all the wires tho
I don't think there was a factory CD player for the 1988 corvette. The Bose was a cassette player that measures 1.5 din
Play the radio normally.To use CD,insert your disc and radio should shut off. If radio does not shut off,press CD button on the CD player. This is to assume you have factory CD. .....................................
Not from factory, I ordered an 2008 with JBL upgraded stereo, made it clear I wanted to play MP3 and have an AUX jack, does not have both. They are researching at this time.
This happens to my 1999 Toyota Corolla's factory CD player from time to time. I just unplug the battery for about a minute, reconnected it, and then pressed the "eject" button (without turning the car on, or even inserting the key). Works every time! Good luck! :-) This also works on a 2003 Avalon with a factory CD player and stuck CD. However, instead of disconnecting the battery, I just pulled out the "radio" fuse, which disconnects power from the unit with less hassle. Works beautifully!
you are better off leaving the factory CD player because the theft system, pwr locks, etc. are all connected through the CD player and will not work if u remove it unless u re-wire the factory CD player to the trunk.
I had the same thing in my 1995 Avalon XLS with the CD player. In order to plug anything in you either have to use the cassette player adapter or simply get a new receiver (stereo) for your car.
If the CD player is a single-disc factory unit then it is in the Radio Unit itself. If it has a factory multi-disci player then it is in the console (Between the front captain chairs. Hope this helps you.
It will be slightly oversized 6.5" speakers if the car came without a factory CD Player, or 6" x 9"s with factory CD player.
If your '97 is anything like a '96,remove the radio and the compartment under it.Remove that compartment and install the CD.Then install the whole unit. The CD should plug right into the rear of the radio. This link will show you all installation and pictures http://www.installdr.com/InstallDocs/Toyota/PDF/869037.pdf
In mine...the factory mounted CD player is in the center console.
is it factory or an add on?
Yes you got it
To install an aftermarket CD player in a Toyota Corolla a new wire harness is needed that corresponds with the replacement player. The old radio needs to be removed and the harness will need to connect to the cabin harness. Then the new CD player can be installed.
If it was ordered that way yes.
bash it with a hammer.
If it was factory... it is a Delco.
No, it doesn't.
Easy way is to go to best buy get you a wiring harness that plugs into your factory harness.
My factory shop manual is for a 1992 rather than 1991, but the only significant difference I've found so far is that my early '91 (mfg. date 10/90) GT has the old distributor with the separate coil on the firewall rather than the one with the coil integrated into the distributor base. The manual shows it buried under the lower dash where it merges into the center console, below and forward of the radio/CD player. I think the shortest route to it is by pulling the radio unit and maybe the ash tray under it Good luck with that; it's tight in there.
