I'm attempting the same thing in my Mother-In-Law's 1996 Hyundai Accent. I've found that you need to start by removing the ashtray to expose the 2 screws on either side of the ashtray (inside). Remove these screws, then gently pry the center dash away (some of the clips might spring, but you can replace these later.

That's as far as I have gotten so far. There seems to be another fastener someplace in the lower left portion of the center dash that holds it in place. I am working to get this removed, but to no avail.

This Might sound simple but it's a pig..... Good LUCK.

Remove the Ashtray, Remove the 2 screws in the ashtray compartment! Now you need to undo the heater control clips 2 under the drivers side then 1 behind the glovebox.(this took me 2 hours to find!!!!!!!!! Then slide center control unit out. You then have to undo the stereo retaining screws and slide the stero out.... You might have to take the cables off the clock and hazzard lights too. Replace in reverse order and hay presto you are done!!!! Shame I didnt have this info before starting!!!!! Oh well it's done now!!!!!!!!!!!!

I could not see the 2 clips until I removed the cover plate under the steering wheel. Once I could see the heater control cables it was obvious what was being said. I disconnected them and the one behind the glovebox and all proceeded as stated above.

I paid a mechanic to do it for me when buying the head unit, it took him an hour including installing two speakers because he had to remove the entire heating unit... so he says to take the stock CD player out and install the new one.

Should be a 4 digit code I don't know if this will help but I had to find the stereo code for a ford once and ended up having to ring head office with the vin number of the car to get it. That is assuming of course that the stereo is factory installed. Otherwise check anything that was in the car when you bought it as someone could have written it on a manual or such. Hope it helps.
