I'm in the process of doing this in my '04 Elantra too...

diagrams/basic instructions can be found at: --click on the "Shop" tab, enter your car model and year, go to "Body (Interior and Exterior)", then to "Console & Interior Trim", then "Audio System", and "Removal and Installation"

Basically, you remove the 4 philip's head screws holding the instrument panel in ( two above the steering wheel area, and two are hidden in the ash tray, so you have to remove it). Then you GENTLY pry the whole panel loose, because it is held in place by several clips all around. If you use a screw driver, cover it in tape so you don't damage the plastic. (BTW, it's a good idea to disconnect the battery before going any further.)

Then you have to unplug all the attached connectors so you can remove the panel entirely.

Then you unscrew the stereo mount (6 screws), pull it out, and unplug the two connectors.

At this point, you need a wire harness and mount kit to install an after market stereo. This is the part I'm at right now. From what I can tell, the ones that work on the '02 Elantra should also work on '04, but I haven't verified that for sure yet.

Installation is the reverse of removal.

Good luck!

(Q) Is this to upgrade the factory radio/stereo? If Yes, I was in the same position. And I went and purchased the stereo first. The dealership offered kits, and they ask make/model and year of the car. I was able to choose from two different kits, that basically handle the wire-mapping of the 2000 elantra, automagically. I got my new stereo installed, and have been happy with it ever since. Hope that helps.

How do you change a factory stereo in your 2004 Hyundai Elantra?

take the ashtray out, and pull out the dashboard, be carefull not to brake the plastic clips. There are 5 screws in the dashboard, remove them, you may have to turn the car on and move the stick shift out of the way, use the emergency brake while doing this. It's not easy, you may need a second set of hands but I did it twice, the first time my car got broken into and thru the window they stole my off market stereo, now i take to cover off when I park in the city.

How do you change the clock on a 1995 Geo Metro?

In my 1995 Metro there is no clock, other than the one that is in the stereo. If the stereo is bad, just replace it. You will need a new stereo, a wiring harness if you don't want to hack up the old factory harness, and a install kit to make the stereo fit in the hole if the old stereo is factory. Then just follow instructions included with these parts.
