Need manual/instructions to fix original radio in 1988 Audi 5000 CS ...

The radio in my Audi 5000 CS Quattro has a loose wire behind it. The speakers keep cutting out unless I push the radio/cassette unit in ...
Any help is appreciated.

David, The problem might be the wires that plug into the back of the unit - or it might be an internal problem. Removing the unit from the dash and making sure everything is plugged in well is a good idea - also check the continuity between the speakers and the plugs. If the problem is in the head unit itself, you might consider getting one from eBay or www.car-part.com instead of fixing it - unless you're emotionally attached to this one, you can get mid-80's Audi radios for cheap, considering how many of the cars were out there before the UA fiasco really took hold. I repaired one of the (Canadian version - push button volume with a remote control) radios using parts from a couple of inoperable ones I have in my parts bin - one had a busted display, one had a 2 position volume (full or off) and one had a busted security chip. The "Frankenradio" was created using plug-in components from the other radios - forget about fixing circuits. I got the parts radios for about $10 to $20 each. Cheers!

Steve,
thanks for responding..my problem is removing the unit from the dash to get a good look at it. I removed the side panels but could find what was holding the damn thing in. That's why I was looking for a manual that could tell me. I think the problem is in the unit itself. I have a cassette adapter which I hook my mp3 player thru the speakers, it works w/o a hitch, but when I eject it and just play the radio I get the cut outs ... very annoying ...

There are four holes in the face plate - two on each side. Insert coat hanger wires in the holes to release the clips and pry out carefully.
