How to Remove the Stereo From a Citroen Xsara

Updated February 21, 2017

The available factory stereos for a Citroen Xsara had many features, but none of them as complicated or advanced as the aftermarket models available today. New features include amplifier pre-outs, sound processors, and even navigation. You can add these features and more to your Xsara, which will add value to the car as well as make the car more functional. In order to do so, you have to first remove the old stereo.

Place the blade of the flathead screwdriver between the radio and the plastic trim that goes around the edge of the radio. Twist the blade to pop this trim off of the stereo.

Remove the hex-head keys on the stereo using the hex-head key set. Pull the stereo out of the dashboard with both hands.

Twist the stereo around to show the backside of the deck. Disconnect the antenna lead as well as the wiring harness on the backside using your hands.

Things You'll Need

  • Small blade flathead screwdriver
  • Hex-head key set
