The Honda Odyssey minivan features a six-disc CD changer on select models. Removing the in-dash changer is the first step towards installing a new system and is the same procedure as removing the standard radio. Minor dash disassembly is required. The process of removing the CD changer is the same in all third-generation Odyssey models (2005 to 2010).

Step 1

Move the Odyssey's gear selector to Neutral, turn the engine off then set the parking brake for safety.

Step 2

Open the hood and unhook the negative battery cable with the pliers.

Step 3

Open the glove box door. Grasp the A/C control panel beneath the radio. Pull the panel sharply to unhook it from the dash. Unplug the connection from behind the panel then set it aside.

Step 4

Remove the three Phillips head screws that secure the changer. Two are directly beneath the radio; the other one is between the two air vents.

Pull the CD changer out of the dash. Unplug the factory wiring harness and the antenna cable.


  • Make sure you are on level ground before applying the parking brake. Move the gear selector back to Park immediately after removing the radio.
