Radio Removal: Using plastic bezel removal tools carefully pop the radio bezel from the dash. Unplug all the connectors and remove the dash bezel. The radio is then held in with 4 7mm screws.
Keep in mind if you are installing a new radio you need the radio removal keys, the wiring harness, the antenna adapter, and the mounting kit as well. During installation we recommend removing some of the plastic behind the OEM radio to help fit the new aftermarket radio all the way in the dash.
