How do you remove the factory cassette player and replace with after market CD player in a 1999 vw jetta?

take off the dash then you need to unscrew the CD player and

pull out the wire. (make sure that you have the harness for the new

CD player and for the car.) splice the old wires and reatach them

with the new harness wires,(they should be color coded and matched)

then plug the new car adapter harness into the harness for the CD

player. After all that, plug your antenna adapter into the back of

the CD player and then screw everything back in. Note that you

might need the dash installation kit, because usually the CD

players are smaller than the stock players. -Shocker
