In order to install the MP3 player, it must be fully compatible with the car radio. The Volvo radio shown in this guide is the SC-813 in a 1994 Volvo GLE. Identify the radio model number to determine if the player is compatible.  The model number in the radio  shown is SC-813, located at the top left corner of the tape slot. Most of the SC-XXX model radios have a quick release tap that allows you to remove them with a pop out pull tab.  An anti-theft CODE card will not be necessary because you will NOT be disconnecting the radio power connectors.

With the end of your fingernail press in on the locking quick release tabs on the bottom left and right of the radio.  Once pressed in the tabs will pop out slightly. Gently grasp these tabs and pull them out on both sides of the radio. Insert your fingers into the holes on both tabs, and gently slide the radio out.  You will NOT need to disconnect the power, and antenna connections.
