    1995 Subaru Legacy - Removing the cassette player

    I have a 1995 Subaru Legacy which no longer runs reliably. Before I get rid of it, I would like to salvage its cassette player, which has some unique qualities regarding tape wear, etc. which I would like to utilize in future. Is there a way to remove the cassette player without harming the rest of the car?

    Grab some screw drivers. A torx set and some beer. Have fun

    leave it in there and move to the digital age like the rest of us... lol

    But seriously, its pretty simple to remove a radio, more than likely a few clip in trim pieces and maybe some 10mm bolts holding that radio in place.

    There might be an anti-theft bolt in the very back, which is trickier to undo.

    I can't think of very many current production cars, or even recent cars, that uses a single DIN stereo. If you have a recipient vehicle in mind, go for it, or if you don't mind using spacer plates or leaving a big gaping hole in the dash. I do have to wonder what makes this tape deck quite so special? Was it aftermarket?

    With how cheap head units are the hassle out weighs the cost of purchase.
