1. disconnect battery lead because of air bag sensors
2. pop off trim around shifter stick
3. remove center knob on the A/C panel. Remove phillips screw behind
the knob. This is the only screw that has to come out (in addition to
the 4 radio screws)
4. pull the a/c console forward. It's a tight fit but it's only held by
clips. This was the most difficult part for me because I didn't want to
break anything. It eventually released after pulling with constant
5. pull the air vent assembly off around the radio. This is also a
tight fit, is only secured with clips. The radio face plate came off
with this piece.
6. Remove 4 10mm bolts at bottom of radio. I used putty on a 10mm
socket to help hold the bolt from falling down into the dashboard. Lose
these bolts and you'll easily add several hours to the job trying to
fish them out of the dashboard.

Often times you'll need an aftermarket integration kit to get an XM ready car radio to work. This is a two part system including the tuner to tie the subscription to and a translator to code it so the radio face will understand and display the information accurately. You can find such a kit for your car here: http://www.tss-radio.com/isimple-factory-ipod-xm-integration-for-honda-acura-vehicles-hd1.html
Buy wiring kit and radio dash kit from parts store for the paticuliar vehicle remove old radio, splice wires from new stereo to wiring kit, they should be color coded, install radio dash kit plug in wiring harness slide stereo into dash and enjoy
You will need to remove the radio and look at the rear for the input, if your radio doesnt have an input you can buy the kit to connect it to sirrus and instead of direct connect you can use a radio station to connect to sirrus,most newwer cars and trucks will come with an input but lower brand radios may not. the only way would be to remove the radio and check , dont reinstall radio if you plan on getting the adapt kit.
go to a local parts store and you would need to get a radio removal kit. they are 2 flat peices that you slide next to your radio to unlock it from your dash, after that you shoudl be able to slide it out from the dash. Did you check the fuse panel to make sure you didnt just pop a fuse?
just part around radio, make sure you buy a harness plug so it plug to car wiring and radio wiring no cutting wires its easy and a face kit to hold and support after market radio.remove screws holding panel were radio is.then remove screws holding radio.radio slides out unplug antenna and radio conntor pulg in new harness to car wiring then follow directions for the face kit , good luck.
you should not have to remove the dash to install a new radio all you have to do is remove the trim around the radio and then take out the bolts that hold the radio in and remove the wires from the back and also if there is a Walmart or Radio Shack near you get an installation kit and you plug it from the plugs from your old radio and it is alot easier to wire it that way
Pull off the 3 knobs for the heat controls. You will see a screw under the center knob. Remove it. Look to see if there are any screws near the vent grilles, remove them, if they are there. The whole center fascia then pulls out towards you. Remove the 4 bolts, and the radio is out. Easy.
Most of the New Aftermarket Stereo's now have the Connections for Sirius and XM Built in so you just need the Sat. Install Box. Really Simple. If you want to go a Cheaper Route Just Purchase the XM or Sirius Reciever and Mounting kit for the Dash or Windshield and It will play through an Empty FM Station on the Radio Via the FM Transmitter. Got one in all of my Vehicles and they work Great!
all you gotta do is carfully pry the dash panel off (prying from the far left end is easiest) completely remove panel. then there are 2 clips that hold the factory sterio in place. push on the both clips while pulling the radio out. simply disconnect the wiring harness from the back of the radio. using an adapter avaliable at your local radio shop (scosche p/n gm02,mdarb andgm1483b) wiring harness, dash install kit, and antenna adapter. then simply match the colors on the new radio's harness to the adapter harness, crimping each connection with a "but plug". then simply follow the instructions included with the dash install kit to assemble the kit.connect the antenna adapter to radio, plug in all cables. test to see if everything works properly before the final install. install sterio into dash install kit, re installing kit where origional radio was. then simply put the panel back in its place by firmly pushing on it untill it snaps into place. then enjoy your new radio!
