Some Honda CR-V models come standard with an XM radio option, while others do not. If you wish to replace your Honda CR-V's stereo with an XM radio, or any other radio, you need to remove the initial radio from the vehicle. Thankfully, removing the CR-V's stereo is a simple process, as it is only held in by a few bolts. The entire removal process should take no more than fifteen minutes provided you have the proper tools.
Remove the four screws from the centre dash cover trim. There is one screw in each corner of the cover trim and they can be removed with a Phillips head screwdriver. Pry the trim from the CR-V.
Remove the four bolts securing the radio to the CR-V. There is one bolt in each corner of the radio requiring removal with a socket wrench.
Pull the radio from the vehicle. Reach behind the radio and disconnect its wiring connector.
Remove the radio from the vehicle. Installation is the reverse of removal.
