To remove the radio, you will need a special tool to go into the two holes on the left and right side of the radio panel. The tool could probably be made from a metal coat hanger, by cutting about a 6 inch piece and bending into a U shape. When you insert this tool it just releases the panel and allows you to pull it out. Unfortunately you cannot change out the radio if you have the standard AM/FM radio that came with my 98 Tracer. I had to order a kit from somewhere like crutchfield.com. This entire process is a pain in the butt because the A/C controls are on this same panel. So be prepared to remove LOTS of wires. The kit you buy will come with instructions on what you need to disconnect, and it will have a hole in it so you can replace the radio with any standard in-dash radio you can find anywhere (Best Buy, Circuit City, Crutchfield, etc.). It took me a while to get mine done and I would NEVER attempt to do it again, but it was totally worth getting a CD player in my car. Good luck!

pull the trim plate off and unbolt or unscrew the bracket for the radio slide it out and unplug it
Pull the black trim that goes around the radio, it just pops out..... once you get that off, then there is a couple of screws on each side of the radio (on the bracket), remove those, and just pull the radio (with brackets attached) out, then remove the brackets from either side of the radio.
