Hey all,

I'm working on R&R'ing the heater core o-rings in my '02 HSE and in reference to the DIY pages here it says I only need to remove the HEVAC control panel and glove box and can snake a long screwdriver through the upper right corner of the HEVAC panel opening to access the heater core pipes. I've had luck with this before on my '96 and '98 RRs where I was easily able to remove the radio as well but I'm not so sure how to get the head unit out in the '02. I know it has the two slits in the faceplate cover to presumably get a release tool into, but is there another way to get it out? I recall that on my earlier RRs, I could pop the plastic faceplate cover off of the radio and then be able to remove it. Doesn't seem that easy on the '02. Also, does the nav screen have to come out as well? I have the HEVAC control unit out and the glovebox unscrewed, but it seems that I need to at least get the radio head unit out as well to have the right angle to get at the pipe screw. ???

Thanks in advance for any help!

If you don't have the tools to get it out, just trim up a couple pieces of plastic narrow enough to fit in the slots, and maybe 4 or 5" long. You'll hear it click a little bit when you get it in all the way...then just wiggle out the radio.

Or you can go to best buy or another car stereo install shop and ask to buy/borrow a pair.

The faceplate doesn't come off. The deck all comes out as one piece. Rave says its four screws to pull the hevac unit out. It all comes out fairly easily. + whats mags said. I use some stiff zap straps.

Cool, thanks guys. I see that someone has drilled the large holes in the side of the console support, presumably for heater core o-ring access, so I'm going to attack it that way tomorrow before removing the radio.

You dont have to remove the Radio, just the HEVAC unit, flash a light in the upper right hand corner and you can see the screw. Long screw driver and it came right out, It wasnt that bad at all. Good Luck!
