How to install cd player in 88-90 Beretta.

Postby BerettaMN » Thu Mar 24, 2011 9:38 pm

Well most of everyone on here probably knows this but I thought I would post a how to since I never installed a cd player on a beretta and did it today. I will post some pictures and a small list of what's needed.
METRA Ltd 99-3101 88-90 Chevy Corisica/beretta Radio Install Kit
METRA #70-1858 Harness adapter
Some electrical tape or wire crimps to connect the cd player to harness adapter
Couple of sockets
A antenna adapter if you want to listen to the radio I never do. Just wire your cd player to the harness adapter and you are ready to start.
First step: Remove 2 small screws out from under the plastic dash piece and remove the dash plastic.
Image
Next remove 2 screws from each top corner of the radio then 2 screws on each bottom corner under the radio, then carefully pull that out the ac/heater controls are still conected.
Image
Now you need to remove the 4 screws on each back corner of the heater controls, I did it this way because I was scared of breaking the connectors or lines.
Image
Image
Now that its off transfer the clear plastic piece from the stock radio to the back of the install kit along with the black rings or it will look like crap when it lights up without this.
Image
Now screw the heater controls to the back of this like it was on the stock radio. Hand tighten the screws or carefully with the socket or you will strip out the cheap plastic.
Put it back together in reverse order and your all set.
Image Have fun trying to get the cd player all the way in due to no room in the dash there is not enough room to push it all the way in.

You have to cut away at the plastic backing to have it fit rite.

Good Writeup. One recomendation is to circle the screws so people know were they are in the photo's.
