You'll need to remove an entire dash section that surrounds the

radio and most of the bottom of the dash to access the radio. First

thing to do is look for the screws that hold the dash section

together. You'll need a socket wretch with multiple tips. Your

looking at basicaly a square " 7" figure. That is, it starts from

the driver door, runs over the steering column and goes down to the

console surround the ac controls, radio and cigarette ligher and

ashtray to the console. You can tell if you look that it's all one

piece and needs to be removed. There should be screws starting from

the right under side, and near the ignition. Find the screws you

need to remove and then slowly pop out the panel starting from the

left. The console section area simply pops out because it's held

together by clips, you'll pull from the crease opening with your

fingers. Remove the ash tray and cigarette lighter. You'll notice

that the cigarette lighter socket is connected by wire connectors,

they can be removed and reattached later. By then you should see

the four screws that connect the radio to the chassis. You'll need
