How to Replace a DVD Player on a Town & Country

Save

Once you break down the process of replacing a DVD player on a Chrysler Town and Country, you will find the task is less intimidating than it originally sounded. There are no wires to install to the vehicle because you are using the already existing wires that power the overhead dome light. Installation of the overhead DVD player requires common household tools and does not demand any special knowledge or skills.

Things You'll Need

  • Flathead screwdriver
  • Utility knife
  • Drill with 10/24 size machine tap drill bit
  • Phillips-head screwdriver
  • Work the flathead screwdriver under the base of the dome light. Wiggle the head around to create room between the dome light and the ceiling. When the dome light is loose, remove the dome light from the ceiling nook. Unplug the wire harness from the dome light and tuck the wires up into the ceiling nook.

  • Hold the mounting bracket of the overhead DVD mount over the ceiling nook so that it lies flat against the ceiling. Cut the headliner from the ceiling of the van surrounding the mounting bracket. Remove the mounting bracket and the cut piece of headliner from the ceiling. Remove the wire harness from the ceiling nook and place it through the opening in the mounting bracket.

  • Hold the bracket back up to the ceiling over the area with the removed headliner. Use a drill with the machine tap drill bit to create a hole in each corner of the mounting bracket. Continue drilling through the bracket into the ceiling but not through the ceiling. The 10/24 size machine tap drill bit ensures you do not drill through the ceiling.

  • Insert the mounting screws from the DVD mount through the bracket and use a Phillips-head screwdriver to tighten them into the ceiling. The holes made by the machine tap drill bit are threaded and made to hold the screws in place. Plug the wire harness into the DVD player. Slide the DVD player onto the bracket so it locks into place. Insert a DVD into the player to make sure it works. If not, check the plug of the wire harness to make sure it's plugged in firmly to the player.
