Overhead DVD players have become more popular as the technology gets cheaper and easier to install. These are particularly popular in minivans as backseat entertainment for passengers and children. If you added one to your minivan, you may want to take it out prior to selling the vehicle. The removal process can change a bit between vehicles and different types of overhead DVD players, but the basic process is the same throughout.
Things You'll Need
- Philips-head screwdriver
- 1/4-inch ratchet and socket set
- Wire cutters
Sit in the vehicle next to the overhead DVD player. Locate the mounting screws for the player, which are either behind a drop-down monitor or around the perimeter of the unit.
Unbolt the overhead DVD player from the headliner using the Philips-head screwdriver or the 1/4-inch ratchet and socket, depending on the type of fastener securing it to the vehicle.
Carefully lower the overhead DVD player from the headliner. Look to see if the player is connected via a harness or crimped wires. Unplug the harness if that's the case; if it's hardwired in place, use the wire cutters to separate the DVD player from the vehicle.
