1) Pull the trim panel off. use hand or screw driver (might damage edges. Should be easy with fingets)
2) remove 2-4 7mm screws
3) pull out and disconnect wires.

Matt... it'* super easy.

Best suggestion I can give is to buy the connector to hook the new radio to your factory connector.

I bought two because I needed extra wires to add for power antenna and amp turn on. If you send me a pic of the packaging your connector is in..it'* probably the same..I can send you a couple extra wires to add in.

Yay for getting raped by best buy. 15 dollars for a connector. 15 for the antenna adaptor and another 15 for the HU mount thing.
