Removal/Install Stereo for WranglerTo remove the stock stereo, start with removing the vent bar at the top of your dash. It uses pressure clips to hold itself in, and is the only thing you will not need tools to remove. Once that is removed, it will expose 2 Philips screws, remove these and save, once those are removed, you can pull off the dash panel. I usually disconnect the top part of the panel, and then I open the glove box to help me grip the bottom part of the dash.

You have to be careful removing it, as too hard can damage it. Once removed, ensure all 4 metal pressure clips are removed and reinstalled on the dash panel. If some remain attached to the dash by the radio, I take a small flat head screwdriver and push in the center part of the clip, while using a needle nose plier to grip and pull out the clip. It can then be reinstalled on the panel.

Once this is completed, you can remove the mounting hardware for the radio, and start tracking other components to the anti-theft bar beind the radio. That will usually consist of removing most of the dash, vents, to give you access to the back of the head unit. Once this is done, you can disconnect the anti-theft bar and remove the stereo.

Installation is the opposite of removal.

Make sure you use that anti-theft bar! they do help!

Make sure you check your wiring before you try to plug in another head unit. Get any adapters and hardware you need BEFORE you drive home from the A/V store and rip apart your truck.

The wattage of your stock stereo in your 1989 Acura Integra is 75 watts. There was anรŠoption for a larger stereo output of up to 200 watts.

You must remove the front of the dash. Everything around the stereo. Very time consuming. Just remember where the parts and all the screws go when you go to put it back together. It is not that difficult. Good Luck.

If you mean the stock stereo, you have to get these U shaped tools that have nubs on the ends of them. When you insert them, the stereo should pop out enough to pull it the rest of the way out. You could probably get a dealer or stereo place to do it for free if you ask nicely. Also if you order a new stereo they may or may not include the U tools.

it depends if u are using the stock stereo then no but if it is not a stock stereo then u may have an aux input jack which comes out the back of the stereo the easiest way is to just pull out the stereo and take a look

Try taking out the glovebox, and reach around to the left..there's a bracket mounted to the back of the stereo,should be one nut threaded onto a bolt coming out the back of the stereo. It's not fun to get to,so be prepared to get scratched up and use lots of foul language! You will probably have to go to Radioshack or Bestbuy and get a conversion wiring kit. Kev

you must remove the dash panel that goes over the stereo, heater and around the gauges then all you have to do is pull it out just by pressing two tabs on each side of the stereo

Remove the plastic trim panels to the left and right of the stereo with your fingernails or something that will not scratch the plastic. This will reveal four holes on each side. At a Radioshack type store you can buy DIN removal tools. But for a Double Din stereo you will need to buy two such packages. The instructions come with the package.

According to my brother (who is a mechanic), The stock stereo in the protege requires radio removal tools (2 sets) to remove -- you can get them at just about any parts store. Just carefully remove the molding around the radio, insert the tools all the way and then pull them outward to release the clips. The radio should just slide out.

Remove the side panels closest to the doors and unscrew the top screws on the dash. Once you remove it will be easy to take out the stock speakers and replace them. I replaced mine with a pair of Alpine Type S SPS-600 Speakers, this makes a huge difference. Good luck!
