Rinker 342 Stereo and CD Changer removal

brandonmayberrybrandonmayberry Southern IllinoisPosts: 183Member ✭✭
I have a 2002 Rinker 342. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to access the area where the cd changer and stereo are at. It would make sense that the piece of wood, in the top of the cabinet where the tv usually sits, would be able to just drop down but its does not seem that way. Any insight is appreciated. Thanks!

    You need the metal parts that slide between the radio and the housing. I would check with Kenwood (or whoever made it) or an auto stereo shop for them.

    I looked inside my storage unit and it looks easy to remove some screws and remove the inner upper panel.

    I had to remove some screws from under the unit, access was from the TV storage area.  I was replacing the stereo anyway with a newer Kenwood which came with the "keys" that help pop it out.  Having that out is the other part of the puzzle.  I recall I had to remove screws from the sides of the unit too.  But only after the screws below came out.  I have a 12V BluRay player in place of the CD player now.

    The CD Changer has screws under it, but also screws holding it from the sides that i cannot access. I will have to look at the CD Player and see if i can remove it easily. I dont want to screw it up as its still in good shape and works perfect.

    @brandonmayberry.  Remove the stereo.  Remove the lower CD player screws from TV area.  Slide/rotate the CD player to you can reach the sides from the stereo opening and or front opening and remove the side screws.
