Might I ask why you want to remove it?

You certainly can ask! :-)

I want to see if I can easily connect an FM Modulator into the antenna to allow me to connect an MP3 player.

You may know if this is possible (or whether it is wise) and therefore could save me pulling the PCM2 out.

Only just got the car and whilst music is not top of my priorities, I was disappointed that there is no Aux input for an MP3 player.

Thanks

Peter

Switch ignition off and remove ignition key.

1. Unclip switch cover from below using a plastic spatula and disconnect electrical plug connections.

2. Insert a hexagon-socket wrench sideways into the screw connection of the PCM detent hooks.

3. Close the detents (2 each side) with the hexagon-socket wrench A and carefully pull out the PCM.

4. For re-installation, open the detents with the hexagon-socket wrench B.

Note: - The number of plug connections will vary, depending on the I No. (CD changer, Bose, amplifier).

- The variant without additional audio components (external Most control units) has a jumper (output to input) connected to the optical waveguide plug.

5. Unlock and pull off antenna plugs A, E, F.

6. Unlock and disconnect the electrical plug connections in the order C, B, D.

Thank you.

 

 

Obviously, this is a 10-year-old thread, but I wanted to thank you, and also to add for others that this requires a 5mm hex wrench.

Not sure if I get will a reply as I know this is an old thread. but I am trying to remove my unit per above. and it won't budge. I feel like the hex bolts on the side turn but don't really do anything. or I am turning them to the incorrect position. any ideas?
