Citroen C1 Interior Stereo

In this guide, I will explain how to remove the standard stereo from a Citroen C1 (2005-Present).

Standard Stereo & Car

Recommended Tools*

*Note above are general tools you should have when doing this type of job, but you may not need them, see tutorial for exact tools needed


  • You will NOT need a code for the stereo when connecting back up.
  • You will NOT need any additional leads for this car, as this has ISO connectors as standard
  • You will require a fascia to replace the stereo in this car


This is a fairly straight forward car to work on, first start by removing the heater control (fan speed) knob, this is done by using a trim tool/screw driver, and placing it behind the knob and prising it off towards you.
 Now the knob has been removed, you will reveal a philips screw holding the trim down, remove this. Once this has been removed, you will need to use your trim tool to remove the whole fascia trim, this can be done by placing the trim tool in the gap, starting from the bottom, and working your way up and around the panel until it pops off.
  1. Hi, can I ask, if you change the factory fitted car stereo to a different one, do you lose any of the functions and stuff that come up on the displays? My parents are getting a c1, and they want to put a CD player in. They don’t understand iPods and stuff.
    Thanks for your help.

    1. Hi Jane,

      If you have a little display that shows the radio station on the car, you will loose this functionality, and also if you have steering wheel controls, you may also loose these, but there are adapters out there that allow this functionality as long as the after-market stereo is compatible.

  2. James, good info but one question please… If I sell the C1 radio to someone would they need a code if they tried to install in their car
