How do you take out the radio from the 940 Volvo to replace it with a CD car radio if there seem to be no screws?

I recently put a CD player in my Volvo 940 myself and I'm a 50-yr-old woman so if I can do it so can you. The problem is, I'm trying to remember how I did it. I got the CD player from Crutchfield and they send along a kit and directions of how to install it, in any type of car you specify.

It seems like I had to take out the ashtray underneath the radio first and maybe I got to the screws from there. It's also possible that there were no screws but just clips and it pulled out once you disengage the clips.

I do also remember that in this model car there is some kind of speaker amp under the steering column that also had to be hooked up with the CD player.

******************************************

New ....There is a clip you can reach by removing the buttons out and slide a small screwdriver into the left side (in left button shaft) and into the right side (in right button shaft). These clips have a slot where the screwdriver can be slide in and move sideway towards the shaft. There are no screws to remove and is no need to remove anything else.

There are release clips behind the knobs of the volume and tuning. Just pull of the knobs and the clips will be toward the outside of the radio. pull them in towards the center and then the radio will slide out. The easiest way to pull the hooks is with two straightened coat hangars with little hooks on the end.

after you take out the radio you need to get an amp bypass lead take off the cover under the steering wheel look on top of the steering column and a small box this is you amp pull the lead from the amp leave the amp were it is ,now the lead you have taken off the amp push this into plug found on the long part of the amp bypass lead now you now have still two plugs on the bypass lead push this into the side were the radio is and pull the two plug out were the radio should be now connect the plugs from your new radio to the two plugs on the amp bypass lead fix it all up and enjoy , i have the Volvo 940 SE turbo.

Is the radio playing? If so, it could be the bulb is burned out, or the grounding needs to be checked out. Replace all the fuses even if they seem not blown it worked for me!

Gently but firmly pull the plastic towards you. It may seem like you will break it but it will come.

It may seem impossible to get to the door speaker of your 1999 Acura TL. Just a few screws and clasps are all that are holding it in place, however. Be careful to replace all of them, and the door panel will fit back perfectly.

The interior fuse box: There are two fuses, The first is the one that says "Radio" 5amp and the second is one labeled "Chime" for some reason both seem to control the power to the radio.

I am yet to replace mine with clear ones but they seem to be almost hinged in the middle. You may have to use a flathead screwdriver to wedge between the reflector and light bar on the sidelights and ease it towards you to gain access to the screws to remove the whole fitting.

Hidden ScrewsI suspect that you have "missed" at least TWO screws. Normally, there are more than two screws [the ones you did remove] that hold a tail light assembly in place.The reason I suspect that there are at least two more screws is that IF there were only one, the assembly would "not budge" as you state, but instead would not come out but would be somewhat loose anyway.

A good place to start would be Sirius XM radio. They seem to have the ability for you to make your own radio station. You could also check with local colleges or universities, who often have their own stations as well.

Ther are two screws (Phillips head) inside the rear door or hatch at the light. They screw into the light assembly with Chevrolet speed nuts over a plastic tab. Be careful when removing the screws not to drop them inside the panel. Once the screws are out the Light assembly has two plastic tabs that hook into the fender facing the front of the vehicle. Carefully rotate the back of the light away from the truck while pulling the tabs out on the front. Disconnect the plug. The tail light is three pieces the lens, the circuit board assy (with a gasket) and the bulbs (3). Two screws hold the circuit board on to the lens. Remove the screws to access the bulbs. try the LL 3057 bulbs they seem to last longer.

Open the back door, take the 2 screws out and just pull the lense strait back. Thers like little pegs that snap it into place. It'll seem like it will break, but it won't. Just pull it strait back and it'll just pop out!

Nothing really. They're still on the air. They did file bankruptcy in early 2009, but they seem to have recovered from that.

A couple years ago, it would've been Swift Transportation. But they seem to be going more to the International ProStar. Knight Transportation/Squire Transportation would probably have the highest percentage of Volvo trucks in their fleet, although no real stats on this are published.
