Hi everyone,

I'd like to know how to remove the radio from a 2005 Nissan Note. Attached is a photo of the current radio in the car.
There are no screws within the dash pocket with the lid and I can not locate any screws under the stereo.

All the information I could find on the web and in the forums relate to the 2006 Nissan Note radio removal so if anyone could help me I would greatly appreciate it as the radio from Japan can only access two New Zealand radio stations.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply Flash22.
How do I remove the top pocket? I cannot see any screws that would allow me to do this.
Also what is an IIRC?

Thanks in advance for any help :)

Hi, I've got a pre-facelift note, and had to get the stereo last week. There's 2 screws in the top cubby hole, if you lift out the rubber mat, they're under there. Then under the radio, but above the heater controls, there's a plastic flap that you pry out with a thin screwdriver, revealing 2 further screws. With these 4 removed, the whole of the top centre console comes free. Be careful pulling it free, as the R/H heater vent needs easing past the indicator stalk. Once it's pulled 9" or so away from the dash, you can get your hand behind, and unclip all the radio connecting wires, and that of the Aux input. The centre console is now free. There are 4 screw that connect the radio to the centre console, pretty clearly visible, and once these are removed, the radio unit comes free through the back of the removed console.
I've maybe made it sound more complex than it actually is, but it's really straightforward.

The JDM ( Japanese Domestic Market ) note has a few differences the surround and the stereos are a completely different setup to the eu/uk notes to remove the surround you have to remove the stereo and pocket first to access the screws, have a look at SIDDLY'sthread an you will see........

iirc the pocket above the radio is clipped in place

this was paying on my mind plus i cant sleep
the radio is bolted into the car on the jdm note the surround is just clipped in place (the bit with the heater vents in) all you should need is a plastic trim tool to pop the trim loose

pictures of the process would be useful for other members too

I'm very new to doing car related things as you may be able to tell with my questions.

OK. The images of the clips from my 2006 JDM Nissan Note (no screws) radio are as below.







By gently working 2 flat spatulas around the outside of the housing a couple of times it popped out easily without any forcing. It comes out in a more or less horizontal direction.

The radio is all swapped out now. Yay.
