Factory Radio Light replacing?
Posted 15 September 2003 - 01:56 PM
So, my question is, can the bulbs or LEDs in the radio be replaced easily? I'm not a mechanic and I'd rather not try to pull the radio out myself.
The manual is of absolutely no help b/c it doesn't even list my radio in it!
The vehicle in question is a 99 OBW, "Rocky Mountain Edition" (which I think included an upgraded audio package.) The stereo is an AM/FM/WB with cassette and it also controls a 6-CD changer under the seat. Everything is (or appears to be) factory original, and I don't know if the CD-changer controller is a separate part from the radio/cassette or not (they look like a single unit.) The manual only lists information for the AM/FM/Cassette and the combination cassette/single CD (in-dash) player.
Thanks for any help. I'm not particularly blown away by the audio system, but I'm not interested in replacing it at this time, either.

This same situation just happened to the radio in my 2000 Outback Wagon. I'd be interested in any solutions.
Well, I've got the radio out but my "solution" was to replace it with another Subaru unit, this one with a single-CD in place of the 6-cd changer (the changer was driving me nuts because it didn't like to play my burned CDs.)
As soon as I can figure out how to get the changer out, I'll be selling the head unit, changer control and changer as a unit.
Sadly, I think replacement is probably the best solution.
