On the left and right sides of the radio there are four rubber tabs, remove these with a pocket knife or small flathead screwdriver, they will pop out with little force.

After you remove the rubber tabs, there are four holes. Take a wire coat hanger and cut off the two ends making a "U" shape. Place the ends of the U-shaped hangers into the holes. Behind the holes are spring clips that hold the radio in place. Push the hangers in about 1/4 to 1/2 inch so that it will depress the spring clips on each side. Apply a little outward pressure and pull gently this should release the spring clips from their position and you should be able to pull out the radio.

You then unhook the antenna wire, two wiring harnesses, and the ground wire from the rear of the radio. That's it. :)

If anyone has the color code information I would be grateful if you could post them. I have only found conflicting information on the net so far.

How do you remove a stereo from 1992 Toyota pickup?

You have to remove half the dashboard before you can even get access to the stereo mounting bolts. Start with removing the glove compartment, then the molding on the right side of the stereo. Ash tray, then I think you can remove the molding that is around the stereo. You can find a very helpful step-by-step guide at for many types of vehicles. The guide you are looking for can be found here: Have fun!!!
