Radio Removal?[240-260/91] posted by David Mei on

I'm a new Vovlo owner (1991 240 wagon), and I'm trying to remove my radio to check for any loose connections (I'm getting bad reception). What's the trick in removing the radio? I can see a clip behind the unit, but can't figure out how to unclip it. I'd appreciate any help!

Oh yeah, that one had me for a while on the 91. The anti-theft tab can be observed by removing the glove compartment. Use a flashlight if you want to see it. Then, just bend the tab up (or down) to get it back out the slot it fits into. It is just a push-in-and-bend deal during installation and the sheet metal piece is not hard to bend. Then you can unbolt it front the radio when it is out of the car.

In addition to the screws under the upper square gauge cover, and the anti theeft tab Volvo also "sometimes" installed a rear support bar that goes from the back of the radio to the left wiper arm mounting bolt. Remove the screws that hold the glovebox in, slide it out, take a phillips stubby screwdriver and loosen it 2 turns and push the bar up a bit. It will slide off and allow you to slide the head unit out. Don't try and remove the support bar as it is a SOB to get back in, unless you are a munchkin and can do the work from inside the dash!

Apolgies to any offended munchfolk!
