[DML] Re: Removing the DeLorean radio

You can take the radio out working through the air vents but it is
difficult and even harder to get it back together. I recomend removing
the whole center console. I doesn't take that long and it gives you
full access. I also suggest removing at least one of the seats. It is
only 4 nuts and they come out in a minute. Don't forget the 2
sheetmetal screws from the left and right knee bolsters going into the
console. After removing the console you will find the in-line fuses on
the right side just rear of the radio. The radio is also held up in
the rear by a bracket so don't try to remove it until you remove the
nut holding it to that bracket. It is bad practice to use a battery
charger to power a car without a battery. The ripple from the charger
(it isn't perfect DC) will damage other things besides the radio. The
radio has diodes inside that are supposed to protect it from reverse
polarity but they may not have. Any good radio shop should be able to
fix it. If it is a Craig they may not be able to get the display to
work if it is dead.
