console..hidden bolts or clips I have removed the scripts..diagram

This answer was rated:

The vcr in the bottom part of the lower console needs to be fixed. I have attempted to remove the cover of surrouding the vcr, but there are some hidden bolts or clips I have removed the scripts in the cubby under the VCR which has lossened it, but not yet released it. Hopefully I need very good diagram or pictures showing how to remove it. Other sites have indicated hidden clips, but I have no idea where they are.

Reply to Davo's Post: I have "Remove two push-in fasteners from the bottom of the video cassette player using a flat tool.". I try to remove the VCR and I get about 3/4 out, but then it is stuck on something.
How do I get it out further?
They snap into plastic and will pop out.Yes it is a scary thing because they feel like they will breakYou just need to pop them out the cover shouldn't break.So you pry out and pull to get them to release.

Reply to Davo's Post: what would be the place to pry?
I tried the top and the side, but it still stuck.
It really feels like something solid (metal) is holding it.

Did you remove the two screws?

Reply to Davo's Post: Yes I did.
I did "Remove the two screws from the video cassette player mounting bracket."

I get to the "Remove the video casset player from the center console" step and try to pull it out, but it doesn't get past the console plastic. It is like the vcr mounting bracket can't get past something.

I there a easy way the whole lower console, which is holding the vcr. I figure if I can get the whole lower console area out, I can probably figure out what the vcr is sticking on.

Thanks for all the help before, it was all very useful.

Andrew
Did you remove the two push in fasteners from under the vcr?The vcr needs to come out to remove the console sorry to say.

Like I said before the VCR slides about 3/4 of the way out and then get's stuck.
The bracket that is attached to the VCR that you have to remove the VCR from the console to remove, seems to stick on the inward facing bevels on the front of the console.

What I need is a way to post a picture so you can see.
Did you unplug the wiring yet?I'm going to send you an email address to send a picture to by private message so check for it in a couple minutes.

Just to be clear. The wiring is unplugged, the cup holder is still in place, but the VCR cannot be pulled out far enough to get there.

Andrew
You must be getting stuck on part of the vcr body.Try using a thin putty knife or something similar to pry slightly on the console between it and the vcr.It could be the top or bottom.Nice pic by the way.

Thanks for all of your help.
It took 3 framing hurricane straps to slip it past the console.

Thanks for all of your help.
Great job glad you got it apart.
