View Full Version : Difficulty of taking old deck out

02-26-2005, 12:21 AM
I have never installed a deck so I don't know how to do it. But how hard is it to take an aftermarket deck out of the dash? Don't you just have to pry it out and then unbolt a couple of screws and then take out the wires? How long do you think it would take?

depends some models have clips on the sides where u just push them in and pull out. others u have to take apart the head unit area

Anyone happen to know off the top of their head how easy/hard it is for a 97 Honda Prelude? I'm still searching around for it.

I ask because I'm wondering if instead of just taking off the faceplate, why not take out the entire deck? That way, criminials will look inside and see a whole and think that someone has already stolen the deck. Is this not a practical thought?

NO lol cause then u would have to reset all ur settings

Ok regardless of settings, would it take too much time physically? My college dorms are seriously ridiculous and audio equipment gets stolen constantly.

How about using the money you plan on spending on replacing stolen car equipment and invest in a good car alarm?

if u leave the plastic trim(console of car) off you can take it out pretty easily, but not worth it imo

Car alarms are a joke where I live.

Then maybe you should think about getting out of there.
