i can't because my car have something breaks everyday...
now I need a new CD player, because the past owner hot glue the face on it...
when I want to pull the HU out and see what is going on,
I snap the face and found glue all around it,
that is why I can't pull the head unit out... because the hot glue is around the casing as well...
Now I manage to pull it out, so I either need a new CD player or to glue it again LOL
it is a stock HU and I wana replace it, but I am still mad when people glue stuff together just to sell it...
I buy the car for $4000 and already spend mroe than $500 to repair it...
lemon car lemon car... I hate people do crap like that...

Is there a way to repair this clockspring? I have seen in other forums that someone hase used superglue to fix the clockspring. Has somebody done something like that? Pr is there someone who could give us some images with a broken clockspring so that we know what to expect from repairing one. Thanks

Doing mods to the clock-spring........just remember the circuit for the air-bag runs through this thing. They're not made to be repaired, just replaced. And for obvious reasons, like safety.
