Series 1 Head Unit Removal


Hi all,

A mate at work needs to remove his head unit to remove some stuck CD's from the stacker.

I've printed out the instructions from the service manual for removing the audio unit facia but he says it seems more difficult than it looks and is worried about breaking some of the little retaining clips/tabs.

Has anyone removed the facia from a Series 1 before and do you have any tips ?

Re: Series 1 Head Unit Removal


Kev,

It is very easy to remove the Series I head unit and it is indeed looks more complicated in the service manual, so here are the steps:

1. Remove the 2 silver long trims from the upper section of the dash; these just unclip from their place by inserting a small screwdriver from the end where they meet the dials cluster.

2. There is one bolt in the left hand side cooler that is holding the whole centre fascia in place. Grab a long ratchet and remove that bolt.

3. Tilt the steering wheel all the way down.

4. Start to unclip the fascia from the top edges with your fingernails and work your way down, it will remove easily and then you can slide it off just below the wiper arm of the steering wheel.

5. Once that is done, the 4 screws holding the head unit in place will be visible. Remove these 4 screws and the head unit will slide out.

Thanks Jalal.
I'll print this out for him and maybe offer some assistance in the work carpark one afternoon if he is still hesitant. emoticon

Hi Cam,

If you follow the instructions above, it will come-off easily, there no screws or bolts holding it in place, but the one bolt I mentioned.

Hi Cam,

Only thing to add which may be of assistance for you is that to locate the bolt in the left-side cooler, you will have to remove the grey plastic vent cover inside. It just pulls straight out and the bolt will be underneath it at the back of the cooler pocket.

The above link is incorrectly titled Xtrail 2001-2007 and is for a 2003-2007 Series 2 NOT 2001-2003 Series 1 which this thread is for.
