How do you remove the centre dash in a 1998 Hyundai Excel to remove the stock stereo?
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.

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 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.
I have a 1995 Excel, found mine at the back of the stereo. Yeah i know...strangest place to put it but that's where it is. 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…
OMG!!!!!!!! I wanted a new stereo in my 99 excel and i found plenty of tutorials on how to do it, but none of them explained it very well, i just took to it with a screwdriver and eventually figured it out, over about 6hrs!!!!!! What u need to do is take the black plastic thing off the front of the radio. http://www.carsales.com.au/Tig/UI/PagePopup.aspx?R=7899492&PhotoID=6868586&h_mid=4415219&f_mid=&c_mid=4414491&pid=140973&tabID=304744&tsrc=allcarhome the plastic face that stops u from getting to the screws.
