Lear Jet Removal and Belt Replacement

Author: CFF

The easiest procedure for removal of the unit is as follows:

  1. Remove the two screws inside the center console box, holding the gearshift panel in place.
  2. Set the emergency brake and place the gearshift lever into low gear.
  3. Slide the gearshift panel towards the rear in order to gain access to the two screws retaining the lower portion of the radio console panel.
  4. Remove the two screws.
  5. It is also possible that you will have to remove or loosen the two retaining screws for the switch panel.
  6. You should now remove the two side panels to the center console, and you will find that the radio is supported by a truss with two screws holding it to the truss, one each side. You may now pullout the panel far enough to be able to detach the radio.

If the rubber drive belt has broken ( the reason probably for removal of the unit), these are manufactured by G C Electronics and have their part number 1424-17. They are reasonably inexpensive. Buy two, as belt failure is common with the Lear Jet radios.
