So this is going to sound really basic to all of you. I've worked plenty with audio equipment and know enough about wiring, but have never worked on my own vehicle. :lame: I know I know...

Anyway, I wanted to put in the new stereo I've got and am wondering how to get the old custom job out. Is there something I do to the dash first, or do I just begin with unscrewing the 4 screws that are accessible behind the face plate?

I've read a few howtos on the rest of the process, just need a hint on getting started... (will likely have follow up questions after too...)

Thanks

Those 4 screws should do it. There should also be some screws that screw into the sides of the stereo once you pull the whole thing out.

Sweet, thanks for the quick reply... now a question about the wiring harness. Does one typically need to buy two wiring harnesses (1 for the car and 1 for the new stereo) or just 1? Headed to AutoZone soon and wanted to know what to ask for. I'm thinking I just need this:Metra Stereo Wiring Harness.

Also, since the stereo that's installed right now is a custom job done by an owner that really took care of the car, I hope to find the wires uncut and some harness already in place... would I be able to use that harness for my new stereo?

If they did a hack job you may not have the plug in adapters.
yes that's what i brought for mine
if the factory plugs are still there you will have them already.

you may have to get an adapter from the radio to the harness if the new radio is a different company. It's not like that for all cars but I had to do that with a 95 Chevy Cavalier
