Best Answer

The factory stereo can be removed very easily with a specialized tool called a DIM. I received this tool when I purchased an upgrade radio from Crutchfield. The tool is a pair of metal U shaped "horseshoes". Simply remove two panels from each side of the radio and insert the DIMS fully to unlock the radio chasis from the mount. Then simply pull the stereo out. Takes less than 5 minutes tops.

There are two holes on either side of your radio.. if you dont have the tool to remove it, try bending a wire coathanger in a U shape and pry away. good luck
