( this works for all factory 7th gen Civic's) first you have to remove the cigarett lighter housing (you just pry and pull) then remove the three screws holding the entire Assembly in then you pry and pull there are clips and to avoid damaging the soft upholstery use a large pry tool ( proper tools are a god send and they're all of ten bucks) then you remove the electronic clips by depressing the lock button then pulling the clips out then you have the entire head unit to take inside or work where you please. next pull the climate control nobs off (the just fall off practically with a tug) then you remove the entire climate control sestem through the back by removing some screws then pulling then remove the four screws holding the stereo in and slide it out the back of the assembly then the install is the same process just reversed ( the clips sound like their breaking when you pull them off but your honestly not. their breaking when they make a dull thud or "non-breaking noise") and you can have your battery connected when you do this, just keep the key out of the ignition and you'll be fine (yellow wires are the srs (airbag) system so be very careful of those but you shouldn't come in contact with them as they are below the stereo system) hope this helps:) Lonwel 2002 civic turbo @6psi
